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.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
