Originating from the mind of Tom Field in 1926 and re-designed into an 18-hole course in 1929 by Stafford Vere Hotchkin, It is no accident that the Course is home to the Champion of Champions for the Kwa-Zulu Natal Region.
The course setting has with views that run deep to Durban’s beaches and an abundance of indigenous flora and fauna. The Penncross bent grass is resistant to winter temperatures and ensures that this golf course is scenic all year round. Additional entertainment is provided by the Woolly Necked Stalks, African Hoopoes and crested barbets that inhabit the lush parkland.
The fairways were very tight in places on long par 4s there was no landing area. The fringes around the greens were not in good repair and there was inconsistency in the different types of grass on the fairways and in the rough. Green staff didn’t pause using machinery when you went to play a shot. Some unfair and awkward tees such as the ladies on the 18th.
