Where2Golf says: 

Mount Edgecombe Country Club (No.2 Course): Located a short drive into the KwaZulu-Natal hills north of Durban, the Mount Edgecombe Estate can boast two championship golf courses. The No.2 course is much newer than Mount Edgecombe 1, which dates back to the 1930's. This more recent layout, designed by a local company of landscape architects, is woven through a relatively new real estate development. The course is considerably more open and less tree-lined than the more elegant No.1 course, but like its sibling, also contains several fairway hugging and greenside water hazards that can only be avoided with good course management and accurate hitting. With much of the course occupying nicely undulating terrain, you will get the opportunity for some pleasant views across neighbouring hills, as well as a close inspection of the ever-present housing, some of it opulently large, but thankfully set reasonably well back from the fairways. Mount Edgecombe 2 provides a challenging and fair test of golf, on a layout that has been variously described as "bolder and more dramatic" than the No.1, and also as a course "not without its natural charms" especially where indigenous bush and trees still line a few holes on the lower sections of the course.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

The properties and golf courses of Mount Edgecombe are located on a former sugar estate, founded by Captain William Smerdon in 1859. The original estate was named after the 7th Earl of Mount Edgecombe (Edward Piers Edgecumbe), whose family coat of arms forms the basis for the Country Club "Boar's Head" logo. A boar's head still hangs above the fireplace in the main hall of the Edgecumbe ancestral home, Cotehele House in Cornwall, England (now a National Trust property open to the public). >> In 1924 a nine-hole golf course was constructed here in Natal by a group of golfing enthusiasts, who felt the drive to Durban to play golf consumed too much time. The course was enlarged to an 18-hole layout in the 1930's, opening for play on the 1st of April 1935. The course was later re-modelled to create today's No.1 course. The No.2 course was added in 1997.
