Although this is a 9-hole course, St Cathrynís holds its own amongst some of the more challenging in the country. This means that, whether you are a regular golfer, a pro or a beginner, St Cathrynís will suit your needs and abilities. The greens and fairways occupy 53 hectares of what were once farmlands, surrounded by nothing but the beauty of the African fauna and flora.
It is for this reason that St Cathrynís is also fabulous for the friends and families of golfers, who usually have to wait it out for the avid golfer to finish his or her game. Here, though, they can go fishing for trout in one of the dams, bring their binoculars and keep an eye out for some of the 250 bird species that have been recorded in the region, explore the walking and cycling trails that meander through wetlands and forests, or sip on a coolie while watching little antelope walk past the dam.
St Cathrynís Golf Club is situated in such a way that Ballito, Pietermaritzburg and Mooi River are all within a 100 kilometre radius. Visitors and golfing tour groups are welcome, and the in-house pro shop is sure to delight those needing to kit themselves out. The dress code is smart-casual.
