The South Western Districts Rugby Football Union was established in 1899. Initially, home matches were held in Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn and George, but in 1996, the SWDRFU made Outeniqua Park in George its home base.
They have never won the Currie Cup, but they did win the Bankfin Cup in 2002 and the Currie Cup First Division in 2007 and 2018 Currie Cup First Division. They also reached the semi-finals of the Currie Cup in their centenary season in 1999 under Heyneke Meyer.
The SWDRFU also hosted the South Africa Sevens leg of the IRB Sevens World Series for several seasons at Outeniqua Park. In 2012, they also launched the 7s Premier League tournament in 2012 held at the same venue.
