The gem of the South Coast and just an hour’s drive from Durban, the Port Shepstone Country Club stands tall today as one of South Africa’s favourite golfing courses and estates. The course is set alongside the stunning Umzimkhulu River and the Indian Ocean.
The history of Port Shepstone is fascinating and dates back to 1912 when the first nine holes were laid out, and oozes so much of history with many tales of change, upgrades and flooding when the Umzimkhulu River mouth is closed. These days the club also offers bowls, cricket, squash and even belly dancing.
Today the club is a regular championship host and you can expect all the facilities of a first rate club kept in pristine condition. Voted Best Golf Course for 6 years in a row in the South Coast Herald’s Readers’ Choice Awards which speaks volumes when one thinks of other courses in the area. This club has a “family feel” with a hub of members always finding an excuse to be at the course.
Special promotions that are currently underway at the Port Shepstone Country Club is the new Coastal Golf Membership offer which costs R790 per year. There are no hidden costs here and this is a once-off annual fee.
With a small yet committed team of staff members who run the club in a professional and friendly manner, a new catering team was ushered in from October 2020 with Catering Manager (Jo-anne Laughton) at the helm who brings along with her an array of palate-pleasing, scrumptious, yet deceptively simple mouthwatering dishes to the already established and well varied menu.
MESSAGE FROM THE CLUB EXCO:
“Dear Members, Friends and Future Members of Port Shepstone Country Club
We as the executive would like to take the time to thank all those involved in this very tough year – and although we are not out the storm, we have managed to sustain during the toughest year I have known.
We are excited to say that the introduction of our Coastal Membership has allowed us to offer members a slight reduction in this year’s Subs, with the exception of one section, based on the agreement made many years ago, this section has had a price freeze.
We are also excited about a new loyalty card, which as a fully paid up member, you will be issued with a card, for the year, and each month, have the chance to receive a non-transferable free round after playing and paying for 3 rounds – as a thank you for the continued support – it will be valid on a monthly basis, and need to be used in the same month as it is acquired – please contact Ethan Grimsley our Club Manager for more information should you need.
We as an Executive thank you all again for the continued support, and look forward to making Port Shepstone the best golf course on the coast.”
