St Catharine’s Golf Course. KZN.
Posted by bulldog
Now this is a Golf Course with a difference… Piet Nel the owner of the ground, decided to turn old corn or mealie lands into a Golf Course.
It is situated within 100 km. of Ballito, Pietermaritsburg and Mooi River, situated in the Natal midlands.. not far from anywhere and a lot closer than you think..
Piet is also selling sites on freehold, and one can own a piece of this little paradise for life… But he has accommodation which one can hire at very reasonable prices, as well as, organised golf weekends, corporate days, or just casual day visits… and you must try out their “Home cooked meals” these are off the top shelf…
The club house a very welcoming place, always full of locals and lots of fun, you can even toss a hook into the water and try your hand at landing a fish.. either Bass or Trout..
Part of the course meanders around the dam but only comes into play on a few holes… now one must remember that this is a privately owned course maintained by Piet and the equipment is made up of older mowers… but when one takes this into consideration, it is actually unbelievable. A wonderful course to play if one is staying in the area…
If one plays there stay till the sun sets… it offers up some of the best I’ve seen in a long time…
About bulldogI am a semi retired Green Keeper, Golf Course designer, Course constructor, also an avid amateur photographer that loves to visit the South African Game Parks and take photos. My main aim is to improve with practice, and to capture as many of the Birds of the RSA on camera. Feel free to criticise, and comment, I'm open to all suggestions. But most of all enjoy what I have to offer from my beautiful country South Africa. As an ex Rhodesian I enjoy the bush life of South Africa and all it has to offer, birds and wild animals being my favourites. I have been lucky to have traveled fairly extensively, specially to those special places, our Game Parks. Golf Courses having been part of my employment has given me the chance to experience some of the different courses within the country of which I blog occasionally . I hope you enjoy what you find on my blogs, I do it for fun and as a way of recording what I've seen and experienced.
