Before golf players were considered major celebrities and the game became an excuse for kids without licenses to roar around the course on a golf cart; it was a game of quiet poise and concentration. Enjoy a classic style course with one 18-hole round, including a bucket of balls for the driving range and a one night stay for two at the Gowrie Lodge for R675.50.
Said to be one of the more dignified types of sport, Golf requires persistence and patience. No one likes a golfer who throws his clubs around or cries in public. Gowrie Golf Club’s classic style course is a golfer’s paradise, with 18 holes and manicured greens which demand accurate iron play and good chipping. With no golf carts allowed, it’s peaceful and quiet, bringing one back to the days of men in striped tees saying things like “jolly good show” and “nice swing old boy”.
If you need that little practice round before the big game, perfect your swing and enjoy a full bucket of balls to strike at on the driving range.
After an idyllic game of golf, settle down for your evening at the Gowrie lodge where you can enjoy the country life style without cows coming into the kitchen and stealing your oatmeal. With beautifully appointed rooms, a stunning view of the course and that irresistible country feel; you’ll soon be a regular strolling around with golf club in hand and that obligatory piece of straw whistling between your teeth.
Tee-off fact: A recent article claimed that a group of small animals led by a mouse called Henry had started a golf club at his mouse house where they were using staples as golf clubs.
