Royal Durban Golf Course is a flat but interesting championship course set entirely within the confines of the Greyville horse racing track, and close to the city centre. Several holes border on the racetrack on the opening nine, so don't come to Royal with a slice. Where else can you play golf, at a Royal Club at that, and simultaneously watch your fancied racehorse battle it out on the race track?

This course is one of the most demanding golf courses in the country. At first glance it looks easy with its flat layout and lack of trees, but there is little protection from wind and that can mean a difficult game.

Signature Hole: There is a good balance of holes, short and long, and one of the most exciting par 4s is the ninth, just 279 metres from the back tee, with a green placed between a large tree and perilously close to the rails of the racetrack.
