Based at the five-star Steenberg Hotel, in an exclusive suburb a 20-minute drive from the heart of Cape Town, this Jonathan Markson venue in South Africa affords an opportunity to explore this scenic region while also honing your tennis skills. The hotel perches in the tranquil Constancia Valley, a wine region, on a farm that dates to the 17th century. South African coach Tim Armstrong, who founded a South African tennis school, presides over the week's 15 hours of group clinics, which take place at the nearby Meadowridge Tennis Club. It's a format that leaves ample time for exploring the region's wine country, famous botanical garden, nature reserves, and more. The hotel, meanwhile, adds options for golf and pampering in their spa.
