Since opening in 1994, the Prince’s Grant golf course has earned a reputation for excellence. Prince’s Grant is a regular recipient of the Compleat Golfer 5-Star Golf Experience Award and has been named the Best Golf Development in South Africa by the World Property Awards.

The golf course has a links/parkland layout, designed and constructed by Peter Matkovich, and is laid out over four ridge lines overlooking the Indian Ocean. Sweeping, majestic views over the ocean, with spectacular coastal forest makes this one of the most scenic and visually stunning golf courses in South Africa. But it is the quality of the golf course design and the lovingly groomed condition of greens and fairways that make Prince’s Grant a bucket list golf course for golfers of all ability levels.

When all of this is paired with the mild KwaZulu-Natal climate that allows for year round golfing, you understand why Prince’s Grant is one of those golf courses where you sit with a cold beverage after the 18th, and you are already starting to plan how you will play the next round on this magnificent golf course.

Prince’s Grant Golf Course Layout

first hole

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 11

Par: 4

Playing Tip:

Favour the left with your drive and don’t be long with your approach as the green runs from left to right and front to back.

hole2

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 3

Par: 4

Playing Tip:

Unless there is a serious wind in your face, leave the driver in the bag. Calculate your second shot carefully, then add one club.

hole3

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 15

Par: 3

Playing Tip:

The wind can play tricks here – correct club selection is critical. Take the water out of play and use the bank to the left of the green where the ball is sure to feed off onto the middle of the green.

fourth hole

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 5

Par: 4

Playing tip:

A good drive to the left side of the fairway presents a birdie opportunity, but an approach shot left will be severely punished!

fifth hole

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 13

Par: 4

Playing Tip:

Not a long hole, but beware of the sluit on the left of the tee. Tricky putt if the pin is at the back.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 7

Par: 5

Playing Tip:

Welcome to PG’s Amen Corner, the first of back to back par lives where many a good nine has been ruined! A favourable wind will entice the brave to have a go in two. Be happy to take a par and move on.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 9

Par: 5

Playing Tip:

Beware the sluit that awaits your tee shot and then runs down the entire right hand side of the fairway to the large undulating green.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 17

Par: 3

Playing Tip:

The wind is there but you can’t feel it! Favour the right to avoid a hike back down to the 7th fairway for your second shot.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 1

Par: 4

Playing Tip:

OB on the right and a big drop on the left so “straight is great” off the tee on this well deserved stroke 1! May the wind be with you!

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 6

Par: 4

Playing tip:

Keep the driver in the bag and favour the left and avoid the bunkers to give yourself an easy approach to this tricky green.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 14

Par: 3

Playing Tip:

If the wind is up from the South, short of the green is the smart play here.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 18

Par: 4

Playing Tip:

Bunkers everywhere, but a birdie opportunity for the well placed tee shot.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 2

Par: 4

Playing Tip:

Unlucky for some! A stray tee shot here guarantees a reload… be straight or be sorry.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 8

Par: 4

Playing Tip:

A straight tee shot will produce a birdie opportunity but don’t be long with your approach shot.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 10

Par: 5

Playing tip:

One of the best golf views in Africa but beware the bush on the left and OB on the right.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 16

Par: 4

Playing Tip:

Don’t be fooled by this innocent looking par four, plenty of opportunity to lose a ball or two here if you are not careful.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 12

Par: 3

Playing Tip:

Great short hole, aim right of the V palm trees and let the ball feed off the slope.

PLAYING TIP

Stroke: 4

Par: 5

Playing Tip:

Par five to finish, sluit on the left all the way, then it grabs you again in front of the green. A well laid up second shot will definitely create a birdie opportunity.
