Durban Country Club Championship Course
Durban Country Club "Beachwood Course" - 10th Hole
Both Zimbali Country Club and Prince's Grant offer tough challenging courses. Zimbali offers one of the toughest tests of golf in the region, with the inward nine providing a scenic distraction.
Also to the west is the Umhlali Country Club course and the town of Tongaat has a nine-hole course which is the Amitikulu Golf Course.
South of Umhlanga is the 5,883-meter Durban Country Club Beachwood Golf Course and on the outskirts of Durban's CBD is the renowned Durban Country Club Championship course - home to some yearly Sunshine Tour tournaments which hosts players such as Ernie Els, Rory Sabbitini and Retief Goosen.
Nearby is the 9-hole Windsor Park Golf Club, which has a mashe' course. Off-season rates and equipment for hire for the not-so-serious and beginner golfers.
Royal Durban is in the centre of town, surrounded by the Greyville Race Course. This course is very flat and user-friendly, but avoid the rough like plague!
At higher altitude inland is the Kloof Country Club which is situated about 30 km along the N3 and is a good stop before you travel to Hillcrest to visit the crafts and curio shops on the way to the Valley of a 1000 Hills.
