Golf Courses on the South Coast, KwaZulu Natal (Golf Coast)
Monkeys and birds abound and a birdie or two of your own is on the cards for even the average golfer who can hit two straight shots in a row.
Port Shepstone: Situated on the banks of the
Umzimkulu, Natal's second largest river, and is one of the most popular courses on the Golf Coast.
Established in 1915, this 18 hole, par 72 course
San Lameer: The emphasis at both San Lameer's Villa Resort and golf course is on landscaping and conservation.
The parklike setting with it's many water features ranks it among the most picturesque courses in southern Africa, and is headed for its place in the country's top ten.
Peter Matkovich, course designer and pro golfer, offers this advice - 'it is
easy to make a bogey; par is difficult´
Selborne: Listed in the top 12, Selbourne today is an exclusive 18-hole golf course estate complemented by a modern country club house for golfers. The well thought out course achieves a good balance between a fun round for the average player and a challenge for the low handicapper. Stray shots can be severely punished, especially on the 3rd hole, a really testing par 5 where the nearer you get to the green the smaller the target appears. Following this is a real `postage stamp´ short hole that requires a steady tee shot to survive.
Wild Coast: Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, this course is created to test the skills of any golfer. Rated one of the toughest in South Africa, it has beaten the best. With its well-manicured lawns, spectacular sea views (and breeze) this course is one of the most scenically beautiful to be found on the Golf Coast. 59 large bunkers guard the manicured lawns, and the hole layouts are one of the reasons why it has played host to many of the top golf challenges.
There are 6 par threes but two of these don't have fairways from tee to green, just lined gorges! The magnificent 13th hole features a waterfall, and the shot on the twelfth (par five) is one of the most spectacular shots you are ever likely to play.
