Bosch Hoek Golf Club

Situated in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, the Bosch Hoek Golf Club is home to a nine-hole course that has an interesting history, as it formed part of a farm that was among the original voortrekker claims to be settled in the 1850s. The positioning of the eighteen tees is critical to any nine-hole layout, and here the front and back nines are very different. With the outward loop measuring 2 942 metres, and the homeward nine 2 918 metres, this is no monster – and yet lower handicap golfers will find sufficient challenges to keep them thinking. The longest hole on this course is the par-5 3rd which measures 517 metres. The shortest hole is the signature par-3 5th, which is played over water.

Peter Matkovich, who certainly needs no introduction, has said that “Gowrie Farm is a tribute to real golf” – high praise from a man that knows the game inside out. The course is exciting to play on, barrels of fun for the average weekender and quite a challenge to the beginner. The views are quite breath-taking too and the club only rents out motorized carts out to those over 65 or that have physical impairments – it’s quite easy to see why once you’ve stretched your legs out over the nine.
