Durban

Country Club

Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa

A course which hosted more South African “Opens” than any other and is still top class - A top 10 course

Durban Country Club is located on the edge of the northern suburbs of Durban not far from the new football stadium. Club is designed by George Waterman and Laurie Waters it opened in 1922. This is a famous golf club, one of the oldest in South Africa and has played host to more South African Opens than any other course in the country. The club course is beautifully laid out and many holes remain in the mind long after you have played it. It ranks amongst the top 10 in South Africa. This is a must on any golfing holiday in South Africa.

This is a gently undulating course, built on high dunes close to the sea with many holes running through dense tropical vegetation. The priority, however, is to keep your ball on the ‘straight and narrow’ as the ever-present flora and fauna line the fairways. Other dangers are the green-side bunkering which are numerous and substantial. Water features are on only a couple of holes but fast and subtly breaking greens are among the many challenges you face. The infamous par three 12th has an up turned ‘saucer’ of a green and has claimed a few famous scalps. The third hole is considered one of the best par five’s in the world. You play off a high tee to a narrow stretch of fairway framed by a large, deep bunker on the left-hand side. A par on you card here sets you up perfectly for the rest of your round.

Durban Country Club is ideally placed to visit many other courses on the north and south coast of KwaZulu-Natal as well as being close to some fine beaches and big five game reserves.
