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.

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

Excellent service from the staff. Beautifully kept greens despite the rest of the course being dry.

The golf cart needs a roof and front cover especially because it is so cold in the midlands. Proper direction and indication that 2 holes use the same green. If these two things where done it would have been 10/10.

Greens were very bumpy with patches of sand. R400 for a round is also very steep in comparison to other courses in the area.
