3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Royal Nairobi Golf Club Est. 1906

Where2Golf says: 

Royal Nairobi Golf Club is home to a rather ordinary and unpretentious tree-lined parkland layout, popular with local golfers. The course is located a short drive from the centre of Kenya's capital city of Nairobi. The golf club, Kenya's oldest, was founded as a 9-hole golf course and basic club house. Course description, images and other details about this club to follow soon.

Did you know?

Royal Nairobi is the only golf club in Kenya honoured by exercise of the Sovereign's royal prerogative, during the period of British rule (1895–1963). George V conferred the Royal title on the Club in 1936.

Immediately to the south of the golf course lies the sprawling Kibera slum, Kenya and possibly Africa's largest urban slum. Most of the Kibera slum residents live in extreme poverty, earning less than $1.00 per day.
