Golf Courses on the South Coast, KwaZulu Natal (Golf Coast)

Southbroom: 
Dennis Hutchinson, veteran pro golfer and TV sport's commentator, describes Southbroom as one of the finest holiday golf courses to be found.

It's tough and tight layout through lush coastal bush offers spectacular sea and surf views. Renovations have produced wondrous results with water features coming into play on many holes.

The first hole is an excellent start, a tricky par 4 to test your opening skills, the short par 3 on the 4th hole  might stop you in your tracks. 
This is the most talked about hole on our course as it is part of the coastline, and on rare occasions you can watch the dolphins play or whales bask in the warm Indian Ocean currents. 

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.
Beware the deceiving 69 rating (par 72), there's plenty of bush out there! Derek James, the local pro and his wife specialising in lady golfers clothes, without a doubt the best stocked golf shop on the "Golf Coast". 
Even better, it's just a 2 minute walk from Golf House

Margate: 
Considered the most improved course on the Golf Coast. The upgrading project, motivated by its keen and dedicated members, has produced a new and challenging course. Beware the 9th and 18th, both finishing par fives that share a vast contoured green in the 'St Andrews' tradition. It is a relatively easy start up the first and second fairways but the course gets more demanding from the third hole. The 10th and 11th are really challenging holes, the short 11th, par 3, being one of the most deceiving and demanding to be found anywhere.

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 
has two very different nines. The well-wooded first nine is stunning in its natural beauty with numerous indigenous trees to penalise wayward shots. The second nine is longer with wider fairways but is more exposed to the elements.
The course is an easy walk along level fairways except for the climb up to the fifth tee. The club also offers tennis, squash and bowls facilities.

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.
