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.

Whilst it is always a pleasure to play Gowrie (I have played numerous times before) I felt that the course  maintenance wasn't up to it's usual high standard. There were certain areas, such as the right hand rough on the first hole that was unkept with lots of weeds (clover). The greens were however up to their usual high standard. Thank you

Great vibe, nice staff and pro. The course was clean and well maintained. Sometimes a little hard to find the next hole but fun was had by all.

The booking process( online), the reception and the course itself are all of impeccable standard. The tournament group in front of us and who shared common fairways, really held us back. It's unpleasant to wait 5 minutes before hitting the next golf shot. Otherwise, Gowrie is probably one of the best courses we have ever played.

Caddies not trained in reading the greens. Confusion on some holes. Open carts a problem during the rain. Driving range to close to Hole 1. Almost got hit by balls from the driving range.
