Gowrie Farm Golf and Fly-Fishing Estate is set in Nottingham Road, in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and within the context of a working farm.  The estate is surrounded by a choice of well-stocked trout dams, lush bush and kikuyu pastures.


The par 70, nine hole golf course, developed by Guy Smith, has been built in the classic style, with tees at ground level, gently undulating fairways and raised greens.  With the feel of a links course, it is testing for good players and  also enjoyable for the average golfer. 

When played as an 18 hole layout the course has 5 par threes, 3 par fives and 10 par fours. 


The magnificent stone Clubhouse boasts five luxury, 4 star double rooms all overlooking the lake and golf course.  These are managed by the Nottingham Road Hotel and are run on a bed and breakfast basis. 


Lunches are served at Halfway House, while evening meals may be enjoyed at a choice of several local restaurants within 5 kilometers of Gowrie Farm.  

Overlooking the 6th green is the Old Tom Morris Cottage which is ideal accommodation for 2 four balls.  Having four bedrooms, all en-suite, as well as an open-plan lounge, dining-room and kitchen area with beautiful views over the golf course and Clubhouse, Old Tom Morris Cottage is run as self-catering, luxury accommodation.

Being nestled within the heart of South Africaís premier arts and crafts routes of the Midlands Meander, Gowrie Farm offers a plethora of activities for those looking for somewhere to while away the time.
