Situated on the verdant KwaZulu Natal South Coast, the 18-hole championship golf course at Selborne Golf Estate, Hotel and Spa is one of the most picturesque in the country, and rated by Golf Digest magazine as one of South Africa’s Top 100 courses.
Its beauty has been compared to that of Augusta, and the challenges that may be found here have been the downfall of many a player during the Sunshine Tour.
Recently revamped, water is a prominent feature on the majority of the holes, either by coming in to play, or as a scenic ocean-view backdrop to your efforts, adding lustre to a naturally picturesque environment.
The course lives up to its looks too. Designed by Denis Barker, one of the original proprietors of Selborne Golf Estate, Hotel and Spa, the challenge is on from the first tee onwards, providing a real contest for golfers of every ability.
The driving range is world-class and sits alongside Africa’s biggest putting green with a resident Pro always on-hand to offer advice and guidance.
The tropical climate of the South Coast is perfect for year-round golfing experiences, while the hotel offer luxurious accommodation for those wanting to linger in the area a little longer. The private and secluded Beach Club provides a refreshing escape on sunny South Coast days.
Located on South Africa’s Golf Coast, Selborne is found within an hours’ drive of another 11 of Golf Digest’s top 100 courses, so makes an ideal stopover for golfing enthusiast’s wanting to try out other courses too.
