Golf Courses

The Kwazulu Natal South Coast is referred to as South Africa's 'Golf Coast' for good reason having no less than 10 quality golf courses all within easy driving distance of Kapenta.

Umkomaas Golf Club - Umkomaas (18-Holes)

Set amongst an indigenous coastal bush which shelters this 18-hole layout from much of the wind associated with coastal courses, Umkomaas offers a variety of challenges to all types of golfer.  Some of the longer holes will suit the 'big-hitters' whilst the shorter holes offer the accurate player the advantage. All in all a very fair test of golfing skill. 


Scottburgh Golf Club - Scottburgh (18-Holes)

Set close to the sea, the layout is quite open allowing the odd wayward tee shot. The second nine moves slightly inland allowing it to play easier than the first due it being sheltered from the sometimes violent coastal winds. Its signature hole, the 18th, tees off from a raised tee box which overlooks the green in the distance and the sea. Gary Player once said that if he could make up 18 holes of golf form all the courses he had played on during his years then he would play Scottburgh as his 18th hole.


Selborne Country Club - Pennington (18-Holes - Championship)
Address: Old Main Road, Pennington, 4184
PO Box 2, Pennington 4184

An exclusive 18-hole golf estate that is listed in the top 12 golf courses in South Africa. A feature of Selborne apart from the magnificent course is the abundance of birdlife and small antelope. This course provides a great test of one's golfing ability and with water on 14 holes errant shots will be penalised heavily. Augusta like greens and lush fairways make Selborne a 'must play' on any tour of the golf courses of the region.


Umdoni Country Club - Pennington (18-Holes)


Port Shepstone Country Club - Port Shepstone (18-Holes)
Address: Main South Coast Road, Port Shepstone
PO Box 249 Umtentweni 4235

Established in 1915 the well wooded first nine is a lot more challenging that it looks with the towering Mtsintsi and other indigenous trees always ready to penalise the wayward shot. Being relatively flat the course is easy to walk except for a steep climb up to the short 5th which has been aptly named the 'pulpit".

The second nine is longer and the fairways wider but being a coastal course the open fairways are more exposed to elements. A pleasant walk and a fair challenge.


Margate - Margate (18-Holes)
Address: Wingate Avenue, Gaybridge, Margate
PO Box 128, Margate 4275

Quite recently rebuilt, Margate Country Club is becoming an increasingly popular course. Set a few kilometres from the sea on relatively high ground with tall trees and superb views. In true St Andrews tradition the 9th and 18th holes share  a huge contoured green making it an exceptional finishing hole whether playing 9 or 18-holes.


St Michaels - St Michaels-on-Sea (9-Holes)

Set almost on the beach at the holiday resort of St Michaels-on-Sea this pleasant 9-holer with 18 tees is a pleasant way to spend time when not on the beach.  Recently totally revamped and professionally redesigned St Michaels is a great holiday course.


Southbroom Golf Club - Southbroom (9-Holes -18 tee)
Address: 301 Captain Smith Road, Southbroom 4277
P.O.Box 24, Southbroom 4277

Described by Dennis Hutchinson, veteran pro golfer and international golf commentator as "one of the finest holiday golf courses to be found - anywhere" Southbroom is a gem in anyone's language. Tough, tight with spectacular views of the magnificent coastline. Occasionally as you prepare to tee off at the Par 3 4th you can watch the dolphins at play or even a whale basking. Certainly a "must play" course when staying at Kapenta Bay.


San Lameer Country Club - San Lameer (18-Holes - Championship)
Off the National Highway between Southbroom and Port Edward on San Lameer Estate

A park-like setting and plenty of water to contend with, makes San Lameer one of South Africa's most picturesque courses. Birdlife abounds and the course is home to several species of small antelope

With water featured on many holes course management is extremely important and certainly nullifies the advantages many big hitters may have over their more accurate opponents.


Port Edward Golf Club - Port Edward (9-Holes)

Even if you have the worst of days on the course ,the 19th, reputed to be the friendliest in South Africa, will make up for a day at this holiday course just across the river from the much acclaimed Wild Coast Country Club.

A short but  testing 9-holer with water coming into play on several holes and sloping fairways wishing you could remember whether the ball below your feet will draw or fade. 


Wild Coast Country Club - Wild Coast Sun (18-Holes - Championship)
PO Box 23, Port Edward, Kwa-Zula Natal, South Africa 4295
Telephone: (0471) 52 799, Fax: 52 869

Rated one of the most challenging courses in South Africa this magnificent layout has many faces depending on the weather. Designed by Robert Trent Jones (Jnr.) The course is both scenic and a true test of golf. The prevailing winds can change the course characteristics from one day to the next and with 59 well placed bunkers you would not be blamed for thinking you had spent the day on the beach

With 6 Par-3's the course is short but the undulating terrain may wish you had chosen the option of a golf-cart. The spectacular 13th has a vernacular to transport  the walking fraternity and those in carts must brave a steep climb to the tee box from which your tee- shot must clear a deep gorge over a waterfall. A spectacular hole which challenges the mind if you let the fact there is no fairway - just a tee-box and a green.

And as you come to the end of the day's play be sure to hit your tee shot off the 18th tee long and straight for if your hear the ringing of bells it means your ball has found a watery grave in the dam that protects the fairway.

An exceptional course and an absolute 'must play' course.
