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.

This is supposed to be constructive critisism and I am happy to chat with anyone about the whole experience. The course is lovely. Staff friendly did not like the cancellation online policy when weather is such a factor did not like the chaos of people teeing off on 1 while we start our 2nd 9. I presume this is only since it was a Monday (long weekend) but should have been properly managed so everyone understands the way it works. There should be a course planner with guidance for 1st time players. You will get a lot more people returning if they enjoy that aspect. Currently , unless someone with local knowledge (luckily me) played with me there are too many nuances and blind shots for the average golfer. Despite that I actually had one of my best rounds of golf ever in cold and windy conditions.

Great course but they do not have roofs on their carts which made playing under a sweltering African sun, difficult to almost impossible! A course map would also help

The score was low, because the club had a competition on, and we were delayed in our start - due to bad weather ( which was not in the clubs control) but we felt they could have been more accommodating and communication of what was happening was not the best.

All staff very pleasant and  helpful.  Course in perfect condition but not quite so helpful. A pictorial map would be very useful.
