Southbroom Golf Course.. A jewel on the Coast.

Southbroom Golf Course, situated on the South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, is a definite jewel. A shorter course but boy the wind can eat you. The fourth hole on the coast line, with a tee box that the waves break on to, can differ during the day with the winds change of direction. A mere 100m can change four clubs from the morning to the afternoon. A course set in amid the coastal belt, surrounded by private homes, gives beautiful views of the sea at different holes. Water, water, everywhere, keeps one seeking straight shots down the fairway..
