The course was originally designed by Tom Field in 1926 and then underwent a re-design into an 18-hole course in 1929 by Stafford Vere Hotchkin. Kloof Ountry Club is home to the Champion of Champions Tournament for the Kwa-Zulu Natal Region and is in its 47th year of this pretigious tournament.
The course setting is rather impressive with views that run deep to Durban’s beaches and an abundance of indigenous flora and fauna to enjoy.
The Penncross bent grass is resistant to winter temperatures and ensures that the course is scenic all year round. Water is used effectively around the course to add interest and difficulty. Being set in a nature conservancy area, you can expect to see Woolly Necked Stalks, African Hoopoes and Crested Barbets that inhabit the lush parkland.
The conveniently situated halfway house is known for serving favourites like Breakfast Bacon & egg Buns and Homemade Pies. Rounding off a game of golf and shooting the breeze with the locals is the right thing to do in the club house’s main bar where you are assured of friendly service and good value.
Facilities include spacious change rooms with showers which are well equipped to let golfers unwind and refresh after a game. Shoe polishing, bag room, hair dryers and a library case for the ladies are available.
