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.

Precious was a fantastic help and it is lovely to see ladies involved in the game, golf carts could do with rooves as the sun was so hot and the course doesn't offer much shade on some of the holes. A few more ladies items in the pro shop but overall the course was immaculate and the greens were super fast which made it alot more challenging coming from Durban courses. Looking forward to being back.

Amazing course, very well maintained. Only negative is no course marshalls present to enforce playing time, due to slow play on the field 9 holes played 2:45 minutes!
