Victoria Country Club, Pietermaritzburg
Victoria Golf Course, Pietermaritzburg, Natal Midlands, KwaZulu Natal / Less than five minutes from the CBD of Pietermaritzburg, the Victoria Country Club is superbly located in the scenic parklands adjoining the Queen Elizabeth Nature Reserve, and above all, boasts one of South Africa’s most picturesque golfing venues.
The course meanders attractively through rolling terrain combining parkland and grassland habitats saturated with scenic beauty. Spectacular views of the surrounding escarpments and verdant valleys provide for an uplifting and rewarding golfing experience. The recently upgraded course is a true test of golf, and contains some of the prettiest holes in the Province.
The newly upgraded par 71 course measuring 6156 meters reopened in April 2007, having been remodeled by Golf Data, one of South Africa's leading golf course design and construction companies. The upgrade included the total reshaping and reconstruction, to USGA specification, of all the greens, which have been planted with Bent grass Penn A1, all the tee boxes, bunkering and four fairways. Extensive new storage dams creating three new impressive and attractive waterholes were added, and a fully automated irrigation system was installed. The course is now able to offer a world-class golfing experience all year round.
