Princes Grant Golf Course
Prince's Grant was previously a portion of the farm Hyde Park and the first owner was George Wilson Prince who acquired the property by Deed of Grant from Queen Victoria on 20 October 1856. Hence the name: Prince's Grant. Prince's Grant Golf Course, with panoramic views of the Indian Ocean has been designed to capture the gracious colonial life-style of early Natal. Set out on a magnificent tract of indigenous Natal coastal bush 75km north of Durban, Princes Grant Golf Course Estate and its magnificent Club House are the jewels in the crown of the Dolphin Coast of KwaZulu Natal.
When the development was designed, it differed from most golf course estates in that the golf course took precedence and was given first bite of the land. Peter Matkovich has skillfully worked the land and today Prince’s Grant is a course which is sympathetic to the natural environment. Since opening in 1994 the Prince's Grant golf course has flourished just as the design team intended. With large greens and impressive fairways, it creates a completely unique and challenging experience for any golfer. The par -four 12th is a good example of a challenging, very short; par four. Bunkers and thick bush demand an exacting tee shot and approach and the superbly contoured green requires precise judgment with the putting blade. The course is a links / parksland layout, was built on dune land and the course winds in and around these dunes with a links feel in some areas and a parkland feel in others. The course has magnificent sea views, natural bush and Zululand interior.
