Where2Golf says: 

Port Shepstone Country Club: Not yet visited by Where2Golf, we are indebted to Port Shepstone CC for the following description : The golf course at Port Shepstone Country Club has been described by a visitor to the Club as “the best kept secret on the KwaZulu-Natal south coast”. It is a nature lovers paradise that has a large selection of birdlife including fish eagle, egyptian geese, various species of stork and duck as well as many dyker roaming around, not to mention the monkeys. The first nine holes are bushveld with a large variety of indigenous trees and mangroves lining the fairways and is considered by many to be the most beautiful section of the course. The second nine are more a links-style, quite open and wind exposed, with a number of water hazards. All in all to play at Port Shepstone CC is an experience not to be missed. Although laid out close to the sea and the Mzimkulu River, there are seldom views of either, with the dense coastal vegetation screening them from the course.

Did you know?

Port Shepstone was founded in 1867 following the discovery of marble deposits nearby, and is named after Sir Theophilus Shepstone, a British-born South African statesman who worked closely with the native tribes in the second half of the 1800's. William Bazley built a harbour at Port Shepstone and the first coaster entered the harbour on May 8, 1880. In 1882 a party of 246 Norwegian immigrants settled here and played a large part in the development of the area. After the opening of the railway to Durban in 1901 the harbour fell in disuse and eventually the river silted up again making it impossible to use. The 27,000 candela lighthouse still stands at the mouth of the Mzimkulu River.

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...
