Golf Digest magazine described Selborne as one of the most spectacular 18 hole golf courses in Southern Africa and it is rated in the Top 100. The golf course is a superb masterpiece affording golfers breath-taking scenery as they weave their way through manicured fairways and coastal forest, where the only disturbance may be one of nature’s creatures.
Whether as a visitor staying in the hotel or in one of the stylish villas that are unobtrusively part of the estate, “The Selborne Experience” is shared with resident bush buck, grey duiker and the rare blue duiker. Monkeys, Banded Mongoose and over 160 species of birds take advantage of the natural habitat of the lush foliage, indigenous trees and stately palms that add an aura of grandeur to this well preserved and cared for environment. Preserving the ecology and extensive wildlife habitats is of paramount importance at Selborne.
Created in 1985 when Denis Barker decided to turn his diary stud farm into a golf course, Selborne’s claim to having one of the premier championship golf courses in the country is well justified when you consider the amount of both professional and amateur golfers from around the world who return every year for the pleasure of playing at Selborne.
Selborne Park Golf Club prides itself as being the premier corporate golfing destination on the South Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal. We are well equipped to offer a unique golfing destination for your group, whether it is for business or pleasure, and we thrive on delivering outstanding service and hospitality with that rare personal touch.
One must also not forget that Selborne Park Golf Club is situated on South Africa’s “Golf Coast”. Within an hour’s drive of Selborne are a number of other top golf courses – 11 of them in Golf Digest’s top 100 courses. Right across the road from Selborne is the Lynton Hall Driving Range and Golf Academy where their facilities include the largest and arguably the best putting green in South Africa.
