The Bluff National Park Golf Course is set in a wetland conservation area in KwaZulu Natal. Birdlife is prolific and you can expect to see numerous species including the Fish Eagle soaring above and plenty of plovers, grey herons and pelicans who drop in to share the water with the resident Cormorants and Geese.
The Bluff National Park Golf Club is an 18-hole Championship golf course. You'll find the course 10km south of Durban city centre. Reputedly a relatively flat course and a most pleasant walk, it has generous fairways and is a challenging course, especially when the south-west wind blows. There are a number of holes in which water comes into play, especially the difficult 17th, where a long tee shot is required to avoid the water hazard down the left of the fairway. Once down the fairway you'll have to negotiate the water again.
Facilities at Bluff National Park include a club house, bar, banqueting area and halfway house. Motorised golf carts are available for hire and caddies offer their services at reasonable rates. Visitors are most welcome.
