Today, 18 holes of golf at Beachwood Golf Course - a hidden gem offering a superb challenge for the golfer that enjoys a typical Links layout. The course was taken over by Durban Country Club in the early 1990’s and underwent some refining and alterations to bring the course closer to Championship standard - offering the discerning golfer an alternative challenge at Beachwood.  Barring the par 3 second, all the fairways run parallel to one another in an N-NE / S-SW direction. The sixth and ninth fairways both have a dog-leg left to consider whereas the other fairways are all straight. There are 41 bunkers around the greens, and 33 fairway bunkers waiting for wayward shots. Four of the holes are blessed with water features and most fairways are lined with trees.  This course is a very good challenge to the handicap, for the fairways are narrow and long, and require precision tee shots and lay-ups. The course is maintained with the same diligence and care as that of the Country Club course. The sixth is one of the most demanding par 4's you will find anywhere. At 410m from the back tee, set high in the dunes, the hole doglegs left, with a stream, bush and water hazard to be negotiated en route to the green.  Return to your hotel after golf.

Durban Country Club Golf Courseis a stunningly beautiful golf course, located a stone’s throw away from the beach and from the new World Cup 2010 soccer stadium.  A course steeped in tradition and history, Durban Country Club boasts the unique claim of being the only course on the African continent to be rated in the Top 100 Golf Courses of the World by Golf Magazine USA. A combination of lush vegetation, sand dunes and stunning views of the Indian Ocean make this course one of the most unique, and challenging, in all the world. One of the defining characteristics of Durban Country Club are the massive undulations in the fairways, especially the 5th, 8th and 17th. The course was built on sand dunes and they are large and interesting.   Signature Hole – Hole 3, par 5: The 3rd hole, a 468-metre par 5, is rated the best third in the world. It requires players to hit their tee shot from the highest point on the course, overlooking the Indian Ocean, into a valley below completely exposing their drive to the ocean gusts. Players must avoid the trees on the right of this straight-away hole, but also miss the large fairway bunker that sits in the landing area on the left. Large trees protect the green's left portion and will also punish any shot hit too long.  Return to your hotel after golf.

Drive in land from Durban (approximately 45 minutes from your hotel), to Cotswold Downs Golf Course.  This magnificent 18-hole signature course, designed by the renowned Peter Matkovich it is built to USGA standards. Rated the best conditioned course in KZN and one of the finest in the country by Complete Golfer - 2008. The Cotswold Downs golf course is a model of excellent design in which golf and nature go hand in hand. The elevation of the land provides some spectacular fairways, while the wetlands, ponds and dams create outstanding natural water features. As a finishing touch, bent grass greens create a superior putting surface. Cotswold Downs is designed in such a way that strike lines are much further than at any other golf estate, which means that homes on the estate will not intrude on the golf course and vice versa.
