Gowrie Farm Golf Club

  • R103 & Old Main Road, Nottingham Road
  • Nottingham Road, Kwa-Zulu Natal 3280 South Africa

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.

The golf course and amenities were superb! The only negative aspect was the fact that some of the tee boxes were difficult to find as the sign posts were difficult to find. I believe more visible sign posts would greatly improve the overall experience.

I was rushed to tea off when I had booked for 8:04 I then got told to tea off at 7:30. I had to pay a extra R125 for a cart and I still don't know why as the R330 I payed was carts included and after all that the one cart ran out of battery , and because of this the one player had to walk as the golf cart was flat and had to get a new one .
