Great Greens

A course with a wide variety of holes, spectacular climbs and jaw dropping descents (especially at the Par 3 5th). In superb condition and with greens rightly rated amongst the very best in the whole country, this is a must visit if you are golfing in the Durban area and is within easy reach of the city just outside Hillcrest.
