About Gowrie Farm Golf Lodge

Gowrie Farm Golf and Fly-Fishing Estate is set in Nottingham Road, in the heart of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands and within the context of a working farm.  The estate is surrounded by a choice of well-stocked trout dams, lush bush and kikuyu pastures.  This tranquil setting is a guaranteed antidote to city stress.    

The golf course, developed by Guy Smith, has been built in the classic style, with tees close to the ground, gently undulating fairways and push-up greens.  The course has the feel of an inland links course and, while it is testing for the good players, it is also enjoyable for the average golfer.  It is a par 70, 9-hole course, which has two additional holes.  As a result, this gives the course variety and interest and the golfer has the feel of playing an 18 hole rather than a 9 hole.   

The magnificent stone Clubhouse boasts five luxury, 4 star double rooms all overlooking the lake and golf course.  These are run on a bed and breakfast basis.  Lunches are served at Halfway House; evening meals may be enjoyed at the local restaurants, of which there are several within 5 kilometers of Gowrie Farm.  

Overlooking the 6th green is the Old Tom Morris Cottage which is ideal accommodation for 2 four balls.  Old Tom Morris Cottage has four bedrooms, all en-suite, as well as an open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen area with beautiful views over the golf course and Clubhouse.  This is run as self-catering, luxury accommodation.   Being nestled within the heart of South Africa’s premier arts and crafts routes of the Midlands Meander, Gowrie Farm offers a plethora of activities for those looking for somewhere to while away the time.   Visitors who relish the idea of the relaxation and pampering that only a Health Spa can bring, there is also a choice of quality Spas available within close proximity.   

For the outdoor enthusiast, Nottingham Road offers wonderful cycling with quiet roads out in the Camberg, Loteni and Dargle valleys.  There are also a number of mountain bike routes and wonderful hiking trails in the nearby foothills of the Drakensberg.  For keen birders, over 200 birds have been identified on Gowrie Farm itself.   

Situated alongside the golf course is Gowrie Village. This authentic village comprises of 134 residential units, a variety of shops, a gymnasium, a bowling green, an inviting coffee shop and the local sports club where visitors are welcomed.

Although our extremely comfortable room was beautifully and tastefully furnished, had  good quality towels and sheets, double-glazed windows, a tea and coffee station as well as the usual complimentary toiletries, there were negatives that stopped me giving this review 5 stars.  Being mid winter, with frost outside, our room was freezing and we were very surprised there was a fan but no heater.  The other item missing was an information book in the room with details such as the facilities available at the lodge, places we could go for supper, meal times etc.  With all the available accommodati...

We could only stay for one night, however, on our next visit to the lodge we will stay at least three nights. It was peaceful with lovely views over the golf course. The breakfast was great with wonderful service. Book now and enjoy.

Dissapointed that no one told us that the golf course was under repair when we booked our accomodation.

We had an awesome stay at the Gowrie Golf Lodge and when we checked in we wished we could stay an extra night. The staff were very accommodating of our needs and we will definitely return to this lodge once again.

Fort Nottingham is very quiet and there’s not much to do except visit the smallest town hall in South Africa – it’s more like a medium-sized garden shed – and spend an hour or so in the museum that’s now housed in the old fort. Fort Nottingham...
