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 is a delightful 9 hole course highly rated by local golfers.. 

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. 

A long and challenging course for a 9 hole layout, the golfer is compensated by the fact that it is 1450 meters above sea level, so your drives travel further.

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

There is a well stocked Pro-Shop with Cutter & Buck, Rhode Island and Gowrie Farm brands of clothing plus all makes of golf clubs at Pro-shop prices.  This is a traditional style golf course so don't expect to find Golf Buggies but it is an easy course to walk.


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.  

Being nestled within the heart of South Africa's 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. 

Situated alongside the golf course is Gowrie Village.
