About Cotswold Downs Golf Course

The untainted beauty of the Cotswold Downs Golf Course is undeniable, and certainly goes a long way in establishing the course as one of the best in the country, and certainly in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. This is an 18-hole championship signature course, and was built to be a luxurious, world-class course for golfers of various abilities.

Cotswold Downs is known for its natural splendour and abundance. It is located in Hillcrest, Durban, which places it within convenient proximity to the attractions and amenities of the big city, while it continues to relish in the quiet serenity of the countryside.

In order to ensure that golfers get the most out of this magnificent course, it is maintained (according to strict international standards) all year round. The fairways are punctuated with dams, wetlands and ponds that not only add an aesthetic splendour to the course, but also attract a variety of birds and insects.

The layout of the golf course is such that the prettiness of the surrounds can be enjoyed from the various holes and fairways, thanks to excellent elevation techniques and the clever placement of tee boxes. Visitors will be please to know that play here is open to the public. However, it is highly recommended that you book your accommodation in Durban and your tee-off times ahead to avoid disappointment.

Clubs and golf carts are available at the course, and visitors are welcome. There is a driving range at Cotswold Downs as well as a pro shop that has earned respect amongst accomplished golfers.
