Southbroom Golf Club continues to improve its course year on year and boasts one of the most popular golf courses on the lower South Coast of KwaZulu Natal. As an integral part of the Southbroom village, the course is a rare South African layout and if it wasn't for all the palm trees and tropical foliage, you'd think you were in Britain or Ireland.

Only a stone's throw from the Indian Ocean, Southbroom Golf Club affords golfers impressive views of pristine beaches and the sea; the tranquility of playing alongside the lush indigenous vegetation of the Frederika Nature Reserve; and an opportunity to feel the pride of the Southbroom village as the course meanders past elegant coastal residences. Each of the 18-holes has its own unique feature and ability to test the skill of even the most accomplished golfer.

The Southbroom golf course is not a breeze to play especially when you experience it on a windy day. Water, in the form of both dams and river flowing to the sea, quietly but surely come into play and golfers need a careful game plan to negotiate this charming course.

Established in 1938, the Southbroom golf course has consistently been improved and upgraded over the years and always has a neat, manicured look about it. A recent improvement doubled the size of the green on the par-5 ninth which now sweeps towards the edge of a large water hazard that is hidden from view when playing your approach.

The clubhouse commands impressive views of the course and the Indian Ocean, affording opportunities for frequent whale and dolphin spotting, and lives up to the early expectations of "popular amenity and social centre" of the village. With fine accommodation facilities available, Southbroom is becoming the hub for both foreign and local golf groups who come to enjoy the ‘Golf Coast’ experience in Kwa Zulu Natal.

Signature Hole: The par-3 fourth, just 114 meters, is the most famous of the two seaside holes. On a calm day it's a wedge, but it's a tiger when the wind is blowing into you.
