The 90-year-old Durban Country Club is the popular coastal city's go-to golf course.
The 90-year-strong Durban Country Club boasts two courses in the pulsating coastal hub of Durban. Lush vegetation and coastal sand dunes characterize these challenging semi-links courses, which are not recommended for beginners. The varying levels of elevation afford spectacular views of the Blue Lagoon estuary and the Indian Ocean in all its emerald radiance. The par-five 3rd hole is reputed to be one of the best in the world.
Demanding bunkers, strong sea gusts and tall, mature trees all provide absorbing trials for even the most skilled of golfers. Durban Country Club stands as the only course on the continent to be ranked under the Top 100 Golf Courses of the World by Golf Magazine USA and currently ranks in the Top 11 by Golf Digest SA. It has hosted the South African Open seventeen times – more than any club in the country.
The Durban Country Club clubhouse is a regal, white Cape Dutch built in 1924 by architects Wallace Paton and WG Moffat. The clubhouse is surrounded by manicured lawns, an iridescent blue swimming pool, club amenities and, naturally, the internationally acclaimed golf course. The club has established itself as a landmark along what is known as Durban’s ‘golden mile’ - the most popular stretch of beachfront in the city.
