The picturesque tree-lined course with kikuyu fairways and cynodon greens has six holes over water hazards which include a dams and a river with a small waterfall and swing bridge for those a little more adventurous

The golf course has a couple of dams and a river with a small waterfall plus swing bridge for those a little more adventurous!  For those golfers still at “caddy” status a pleasant walk around the course may be enjoyed. Alternatively motorised golf cars are available.
