ABOUT THE GOLF COURSE
Royal Durban Golf Club is known for its punishing rough and prevailing winds. The good news is there are no large trees as they were not allowed in the original design back in 1892. Back then local bank manager, John Watt, approached the town council about creating a golf club in Durban. He was granted permission to lay out a links design course on the grounds within Greyville Racecourse.
One of the proudest moments in the history of the club was on April 8, 1932 when after a visit from Edward VIII, the then Prince of Wales, in 1925, Durban Golf Club was granted permission to use the prefix Royal by King George V, making it one of only four regal golf clubs in southern Africa.
