Selbourne Golf Estate


Course Description:

Situated in the scenic town of Pennington on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, Selborne Golf Estate is a pristine, seaside utopia with world-class facilities. The jewel of Selborne is its golf course, rated by Golf Digest magazine as one of the top 100 courses in Southern Africa. The 18-hole, Par 72 course has manicured fairways designed around one of only two privately-owned coastal forests in South Africa. A round of golf at Selborne promises a challenging but rewarding game while golfers enjoy stunning sea views and sightings of indigenous wildlife.

The driving range is superb and sits alongside Africa’s biggest putting green with a resident pro on hand to offer advice and guidance. The tropical climate of the South Coast is perfect for year-round golfing experiences, and the area is also known as South Africa’s Golf Coast, with 11 of Golf Digest’s top-100 courses in the area.
