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.

All reviews on golfscape are made by real golfers who played at this golf course.
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.

Great course, good service, bad players etiquette (drove into our 4 ball - several times & we were not slow) but overall great experience, which will be transferred to other golfers

Great time but found some of the course layout quite confusing. A map on the course card would help a lot. Hadn’t realised there were shared greens so that confused. Loved the experience though - and lunch was fab. Thanks.

The course was great but unfortunately we were only informed the day before that the greens had been given the Autumn treatment. The balance of the golf experience was great.
