    Durban Country Club

    • Isaiah Ntshangase road
    • Durban, Kwa Zulu Natal 4001 South Africa

    A course steeped in tradition and history, Durban Country Club boasts the unique claim of being the only course on the African continent to be rated in the Top 100 Golf Courses of the World by Golf Magazine USA and is rated in the top 10 in South Africa by Golf Digest SA.

    A combination of lush vegetation, sand dunes and stunning views of the Indian Ocean make this course one of the most unique, and challenging, in all the world. One of the defining characteristics of Durban Country Club are the massive undulations in the fairways, especially the 5th, 8th and 17th. The course was built on sand dunes and they are large and interesting.

    The par five third hole has been rated the best third in the world. Playing from a high tee to a narrow fairway with dense bush and a predatory bunker on the left hand side you’ll see why this is the most popular hole on the course.

    Durban Country Club is a shot makers course that you have to think your way around. Most golfers don’t make use of their driver until well into their round due to the narrowness of the opening holes.

    The course, overlooking the Blue Lagoon estuary and the Indian Ocean, has hosted the South African Open 17 times, including the centenary SA Open in 2010, this is more than any other club in South Africa.

    Signature Hole – Hole 3, par 5

    The 3rd hole, a 468-metre par 5, is rated the best third in the world. It requires players to hit their tee shot from the highest point on the course, overlooking the Indian Ocean, into a valley below completely exposing their drive to the ocean gusts. Players must avoid the trees on the right of this straight-away hole, but also miss the large fairway bunker that sits in the landing area on the left. Large trees protect the green’s left portion and will also punish any shot hit too long.

    For a top 10 course and at that rate, not good enough. Terrible bunkers, mostly not raked! Tee boxes were ordinary! Cups were not cleanly cut, probably about 10 days since cups were cut. Still one of my favorite courses purely on layout the rest was ordinary!

    The conditioning of the course was not 100% on the fairways there were patches of detsroyed grass. Some of the greens were not well maintained. Otherwise it is a difficult course to play with a bit of wind.

    It's a very nice course.. I'm not sure it deserves to be rated 5th in SA though

    The caddies were brilliant. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The course had terrible rain a couple weeks back and there was only evidence of it on two holes. The course is in great condition. The holes are challenging and make you think about your game a lot more than you normally would.

    The course was great. There was just a lot of ponding on the fairways because of the rain
