Royal Durban Golf Club
The Royal Durban Golf Club originally went by the name of Durban Golf Club from its inception in 1892. Following a visit from the Prince of Wales in 1925, the Durban Golf Club was promoted to Royal status in 1932 and proudly became known as the Royal Durban Golf Club from there on out. This was the year that also saw this prominent golf course taking on a complete transformation and re-design, to make it into the course that Durban golfers and other golf fanatics walk on a daily basis. Situated in Greyville, this Durban golf course is accessible from all corners of the Durban area.
The interesting thing to note about the Royal Durban Golf Club is that it is built in the middle of a horseracing track. Trees and other shrubbery that one would normally find on a golf course were prohibited on the Royal Durban golf course, as they would obscure the view of patrons frequenting the horseracing arena. The lack of natural obstacles on this Durban golf course gave rise to the developers and designers having to find alternative means to test the skills of players on this course. They made sure that the roughs were extremely tricky and difficult to avoid ensuring that golfers found the course challenging and exciting to play.
The Royal Durban Golf Club is home to a well stocked pro-shop that offers players the latest in golf gear and paraphernalia. Players are also able to polish their games by taking advantage of golf coaching lessons from in-house professionals with an eye for technique. Visitors are welcome at the Royal Durban Golf Club, and corporate groups are also catered for when booked in advance. Golf carts are available to hire for those who don't feel like walking the course, and scorers and caddies are also standing by to assist all players with keeping score and caddying their gear.
The idyllic location and superior course layout make this Durban golf club a smashing success with golfing enthusiasts. The Royal Durban Golf Club has also hosted many successful tournaments including the International Final Qualifier for the British Open National Nomads, making it an international landmark for golfers across the globe.
