A course steeped in tradition and history, Durban Country Club boasts the unique claim of being the only course on the African continent to be rated in the Top 100 Golf Courses of the World by Golf Magazine USA and is rated in the top 10 in South Africa by Golf Digest SA.

A combination of lush vegetation, sand dunes and stunning views of the Indian Ocean make this course one of the most unique, and challenging, in all the world. One of the defining characteristics of Durban Country Club are the massive undulations in the fairways, especially the 5th, 8th and 17th. The course was built on sand dunes and they are large and interesting.

The par five third hole has been 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 you’ll see why this is the most popular hole on the course.

Durban Country Club is a shot makers course that you have to think your way around. Most golfers don’t make use of their driver until well into their round due to the narrowness of the opening holes.

The course, overlooking the Blue Lagoon estuary and the Indian Ocean, has hosted the South African Open 17 times, including the centenary SA Open in 2010, this is more than any other club in South Africa.

Signature Hole – Hole 3, par 5

The 3rd hole, a 468-metre par 5, is rated the best third in the world. It requires players to hit their tee shot from the highest point on the course, overlooking the Indian Ocean, into a valley below completely exposing their drive to the ocean gusts. Players must avoid the trees on the right of this straight-away hole, but also miss the large fairway bunker that sits in the landing area on the left. Large trees protect the green’s left portion and will also punish any shot hit too long.

It's an excellent club and a great course, but given the time of year it was not quite in perfect condition. I will be back to pursue that 10 out of 10!

We played when the course was undergoing maintenance which will obviously affect this feedback as the greens were recently hollow tined and the new grass imports were still growing in. The tee boxes hadn't been serviced in a while and for the price paid it was not worth it. Additionally, the staff were rude following a mix up on their own system which was ultimately unnecessary. Unsure of whether I would opt to play there again.
