Robin Repetto manages the unique Hottentot Fence Tristan da Cunha Golf Course on behalf of the Tourism Department.

Robin is photographed left with visiting consultant Steven Catchpole who generously donated two new sets of golf clubs along with 10 pair of gloves, 1000 tees and 6 dozen new golf balls in May 2009.

Tourism Coordinator Dawn Repetto (Robin's wife), can arrange a golf package for visitors which includes a famous Tristan Golf Club tie, golf certificate, score card and a play on the course for £20.

Competitors in the 2015 Tristan Open
held on the Hottentot Course were -

Left to right: Anders Elliasson, Erik MacKenzie,
Robin Repetto, Anne and Marc Escudier,
Hubert Launay and Andrew Finnimore.

Factory Manager Erik MacKenzie scored 48 for the nine hole course and was declared the 2015 Open Champion.

Local hazards include a lack of greens (!) exposure to gales
and rounded volcanic boulders which, if, hit, will project balls randomly, often into the sea!

The course is principally a cattle pasture,
and also contains the buildings of the island's
scientific monitoring stations
(see Tristan Monitoring Stations Page for more)
visible as white structures in the course photos above.
