Gowrie Farm is currently ranked as KZN's 4th best conditioned golf club by Golf Digest in 2014.

Gowrie Farm was originally a golf course in the 1920’s, so it seemed appropriate for Gowrie Farm to revert to a golf course in 2008 – 150 years after it was initially registered as a farm.

Gowrie Farm Golf course is a 9 hole course, designed by Guy Smith, an Attorney from Pietermaritzburg. Guy is passionate about classic design and is heavily influenced by the old courses of Scotland and some of the courses built in the United States in the early 1900’s, in particular, Merion and Pinehurst.

In building Gowrie Farm, Guy identified the following as important elements in classic design:

- Tees, which are close to the ground;

- Fairway shapes which are dictated to by the natural features of the land;

- Push-up greens with interesting run-offs;

- Bunkers which are tucked in close to the greens; and

- Fairway bunkers which dictate a player’s choice of option from the tee.

This has led to an exciting, traditional course, which is fun for the average golfer, but tough for the low handicapped golfer to post a good score.

There was confusion with our t off, I was supposed to t off at 11.38 on the first T but was told to t off from the 10th t, so I only started after 12 noon. Also the  t boxes were not adequately marked for front 9 and back 9.

Simply well run, staff are all warm and welcoming and the course is as always in superb condition! A lovely venue for a weekend getaway! Phil still runs a tight ship in the pro-shop and golf course!

The course was in tremendous shape and the 7 chaos when played, raved about the round. The pro shop was very helpful and accommodating.
