Durban’s year-round sunny climate and lush, natural environment provide a pleasant backdrop for the numerous golf courses to be found close to the city.

From sea views to indigenous forest and even some courses with wild game, golfers will find many challenges and memorable holes to test their abilities.

You could spend a week or more in Durban and play a different 18-hole course every day, and the 19th-holes are also legendary.

The recently upgraded Beachwood course is beautiful and offers a different challenge. The fairways are narrow and long, and lined with dense foliage requiring precision tee shots, making this a difficult but rewarding course for the patient golfer.

Durban Country Club is Durban’s finest golf course and is considered by many to be the best in the country. Rated as one of the top 100 courses in the world, the course lies close to the beach and is fashioned into the sand dunes. Breathtaking to play and gorgeous in its verdant natural beauty, this premier golf course demands your attention.

The Mount Edgecombe Country Club boasts two championship golf courses designed to USPGA specifications. Each course is a nature lover’s treat, with attractive surrounds and a host of bird life. Both courses are challenging but fair, and provide a very enjoyable round of golf.
