Gowrie Golf Course Estate and Accommodation in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands is a classically built golf course – an ideal country luxury holiday venue in Nottingham Road. Gowrie Farm has a varied selection of affordable and de luxe accommodation available. Situated at the hub of the popular Midlands Meander tourism route ensures a myriad restaurants, coffee-shops, spas, diverse shopping and cultural attractions are in the area, as well as numerous sporting opportunities.


Gowrie Farm was originally a golf course in the 1920’s, so it seemed appropriate for Gowrie Farm to revert to a golf course in 2008 – 150 years after it was initially registered as a farm.

Gowrie Farm Golf course is a 9 hole course, designed by Guy Smith, an Attorney from Pietermaritzburg. Guy is passionate about classic design and is heavily influenced by the old courses of Scotland and some of the courses built in the United States in the early 1900’s, in particular, Merion and Pinehurst.

In building Gowrie Farm, Guy identified the following as important elements in classic design:

  • Tees, which are close to the ground;
  • Fairway shapes which are dictated to by the natural features of the land;
  • Push-up greens with interesting run-offs;
  • Bunkers which are tucked in close to the greens; and
  • Fairway bunkers which dictate a player’s choice of option from the tee.

This has led to an exciting, traditional course, which is fun for the average golfer, but tough for the low handicapped golfer to post a good score.
