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.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
