Cape Town - The River Club Golf and Conference Centre in Cape Town has launched PowerPlay Golf. This new form of golf requires a strategic and tactical approach and is perfect for attack-minded golfers of all ages.

“We are thrilled to present PowerPlay golf on our short course at The River Club. Golfers will enjoy this exciting, different and interesting form of playing golf, which is perfect for players of any level,” says Terry Dickinson, director of The River Club.

PowerPlay is played over nine holes. Each hole features two flags on the green, with the PowerPlay flag being in the most difficult possible position and the other flag being placed in a simpler position.  Prior to the round, four compulsory PowerPlay holes are chosen by the player, all of which consist of playing off a more difficult tee to the most challenging flag position, rewarding the accurate golfer and punishing the golfer with a lapse in concentration. The 9th hole is a potential gamble - if you are ahead, beware, minus points could be a possibility.

The River Club, established in 1993, is a Cape Town landmark offering guests the ideal conferencing and/or golf destination and is located 10 minutes’ drive from Cape Town International Airport and the Cape Town CBD.
