Bar & Restaurant 261 (named after Ernie’s PGA Tour record-breaking 72-hole aggregate in the 2003 Mercedes Championship) is the perfect place to unwind after a round of golf or to watch the sunset over this spectacular Ernie Els-designed signature golf course. With plenty of indoor seating and a shaded outdoor area, this really is the perfect place to watch the world go by.
It has become a favourite hangout spot for the residents of the nearby Victory Heights Villa community and features a wide selection of beers from the tap and an exclusive selection of Ernie Els Wines. The cuisine at 261 varies from the popular pre-round Egg & Bacon Roll, to a wide selection of sandwiches, pastas and burgers for lunch. The menu also features popular British dishes like the Steak & Guinness Pie and Fish & Chips.
261 also offers various theme nights and promotions throughout the year as well as providing numerous televisions to watch sporting and momentous occasions.
“Having a bite to eat with friends – and maybe a drink as well – is integral to a great day’s golf. The Big Easy and 261 are just the kind of places that I like to go. The food is fantastic and you can try some of our wines. I think you’ll love them, too.” – Ernie Els
