Where2Golf says: 

Prince's Grant Coastal Golf Estate: Located on the coast, a few kilometres east of Stanger, Prince's Grant is one of the best known and most popular golf courses north of Durban. Laid out on wonderfully scenic, undulating terrain, you will be tested and challenged while playing through a varied mix of golfing environments. At times feeling very open and links-like, at other times more parkland, you will be treated to many wonderful views across the Indian Ocean and onto surrounding rural countryside. Housing is certainly making its presence felt more and more, but is generally set far enough back not to "overwhelm" the course. Several holes are played between the quite dense coastal vegetation of small trees and bushes, while the more elevated sections near to the clubhouse are distinctly more open. There is a proliferation of bunkers both large and small, flanking many fairways and guarding the greens, with clusters of pot-bunkers often "hunting in packs". The best of the sea views and links holes come on the back-nine; up until then, the front-nine, played more inland and with some very threatening water hazards, is also capable of giving your game a thorough examination. The downhill par-5 14th, which brings you closest to the ocean, is arguably the most memorable of this fine collection of holes. Providing the wind is not blowing flat-out, Prince's Grant is one of those courses you will quickly warm to, well worth the 1.5 hour journey north from Durban.

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

Did you know?

The rolling hills and valleys, located close to the Indian Ocean in KwaZulu-Natal provided an ideal growing environment for the sugar industry in days gone by. Prince's Grant, like one or two other golf/real estate developments, has been created on what was formerly a sugar cane farm, known as the Hyde Park Farm. >> The nearby town of Stanger is also known locally as KwaDukuza, an African name meaning "place of the lost person".

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
