Situated along the shores of the Indian Ocean, this semi-links course has been carved into the dunes. The course is both scenic and demanding, and to score well you have to play well.

Extremely challenging to the most skilled golfer, the course will be enjoyed, but rarely mastered. Elevated tees and greens are guarded by an array of tropical bushes, tall trees and large bunkers. This, together with the narrow fairways and steep slopes make for a challenging course.

The par 5 third is rated the best third in the world. Playing from a high tee to a narrow fairway with dense bush and a predatory bunker on the left hand side, it is easy to see why it is the most popular hole on the course.

Overlooking the course is the classic Cape Dutch style Club House, built by architects Wallace Paton and WG (Billy) Moffat. Its timeless grace has made the name Durban Country Club synonymous with relaxed elegance.

Enjoy playing a round at Durban Country Club during your golf holiday in South Africa.
