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.

Despite all the rain, the course was in great nick. The layout is friendly and challenging. For a short course, the design is genius. Carts are a little old. Management team are friendly and helpful

I have contacted Golfscape as well as Gowrie Farm about the fees I paid online and how I was then asked to pay again for 2 juniors that played with us. To date I have received no feedback about a credit or voucher for the 2 rounds I paid for in full but didn’t play because of Gowrie Farm’s request that I pay for the 2 junior’s separately on the morning of playing. Paid for 6 people but only 4 played.  Emails and calls to both Golfscape and Gowrie have proved fruitless. Still awaiting some feedback. Probably won’t recommend or book with Golfscape again because of this. Hopefully someone can sort something out.

12 greens, 18 tees but never felt like you were playing the same hole at any stage. Really challenging and requires your A game mentally. Would love to play in summer but course was still in good condition considering recent weather. Clubhouse and facilities are superb and all staff really friendly and helpful
