A true gem of the Dolphin Coast, Umhlali Country Club is a tropical oasis with magnificent palm lined fairways, seven feature water holes and the greenest of grass coating it all year round. Just a 15 minute drive from King Shaka Airport and North of Durbanís busy city Umhlali is widely renown as a sporting haven for enthusiastís that need a break from the city-life but donít necessarily want to drive for hours on end.
The eighteen-hole course was designed by Peter Matkovich and is characteristically varied, providing a fantastic golfing test over the relatively short distance. Indigenous flora and fauna are abundant here too and the course has simply been sculpted around the inherent beauty of the land. To the east lies the Indian Ocean and to the West, the rolling hills.
The Club also features five tennis courts, two squash courts, a bowls pavilion, two greens, a bridge club and the warmest hospitality. The club openly welcomes visitors whom are please requested to book ahead of time as Umhlali hosts thousands of visitors every year.
