Course Reviews

Course Name Selbourne Country Club
Location Kwazulu-Natal South Coast, South Africa
Comments from Colin Watt, Northway, Kwazulu Natal
Selbourne is one of those rare gems that incorporates a little of everything could wish for in a Golf Course. Being right on the coast it could be a links but it isn't. Being in Africa it could be wild but it isn't. Set in lush sub-tropical vegetation it could be overgrown with bush but it isn't. Certainly it has a coastal links feel with the sea breezes that challenge wayward drives and a terrain that challenges ball placement on almost every shot. Relatively well protected from the blasting sea the cou rse is at least playable on a very windy day. Wildlife is there but of a gentler nature - birdlife and antelope wander this exclusive estate which also has over 150 birdlife species. The vegetation is a mixture of sub tropical bush and indigenous trees bu t the careful manicuring of the course ensures that neither disadvantages the average golfer but can at the same time punish even the pro. It is a hilly course and a properly placed shot will not present too much of a problem but a wild shot can result in a good knowledge of how to play a ball above or below your feet. The greens are superb and will hold a well hit shot within inches of the balls pitch. Rated amongst the top ten courses in South Africa it really is a dream to play as well as stay. The lod ge on the estate offers gracious accommodation in beautifully decorated rooms and a weekend at Selbourne is enjoyable not only for the golfer but has a lot to offer the golfing widow with tennis courts and a private beach club served by a shuttle service. As a South African having played several courses in the US including Pebble Beach, Selbourne rates with the best. See you in South Africa soon.
