Selborne Park Golf Estate

Selborne Park Golf Estate is located on the lush South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. This world-class 18 hole golf course was designed by Denis Barker and is deemed one of the most challenging courses in South Africa.

Hole 1 - Par 5

402M. Stroke 13

A dogleg par 5 needing some thought! A 5 wood off the tee should make your second easier and put you in a safe position for a simple approach. Watch out for the bunker protecting the front right half of the green.

Hole 2 - Par 4

265M. Stroke 17

A short par 4 with water on the left and to the right to catch wayward shots. Play towards the right taking note of the bunkers in front of the green.

Hole 3 - Par 5

479M. Stroke 7

A great par 5! The 2nd shot requires laying up short of the water, making the 3rd a short approach to the green.

Hole 4 - Par 3

135M. Stroke 9

A lovely par 3 to an elevated two-tier green. Pin placement here requires a very accurate shot to get the ball close to the flag.

Hole 5 - Par 4

346M. Stroke 5

A superb par 4 played from an elevated tee down to a valley fairway. Wind conditions will determine your club selection off the tee.

Hole 6 - Par 3

156M. Stroke 11

Play this lovely par 3 from alternate tees. Beware the water that protects the front of the green. Club selection from the tee is essential.

Hole 7 - Par 4

343M. Stroke 3

An interesting par 4, which doglegs to the right. The tee shot is played to a plateau fairway with most of the trouble on the right side. Keep left to enable a clear shot to an elevated green.

Hole 8 - Par 4

270M. Stroke 15

A short par 4 with a tee shot played over a lake to a fairly wide fairway. Keep right to avoid the tree on the front left of the green. Accuracy is essential, consider an iron off the tee.

Hole 9 - Par 4

387M. Stroke 1

The longest par 4 on the course requiring two very good shots to reach the green in two. Large trees and an uphill climb to the green justifies its stroke index.

Hole 10 - Par 5

479M. Stroke 10

This is the longest par 5 on the course, played from an elevated tee to an uphill fairway. The green is well guarded by two bunkers on the left and one deep-faced bunker front right.

Hole 11 - Par 3

126M. Stroke 18

A short par 3 requiring a short iron but be careful not to go off the line left or right! Club selections is a big factor.

Hole 12 - Par 5

485M. Stroke 6

A pleasing par 5 that needs some good course management. Play a safe second shot with an iron into a fairly wide part of the fairway. The green is well guarded - no bunkers needed around the green here!

Hole 13 - Par 4

400M. Stroke 2

This par 4 requires a very accurate tee shot. The green is well guarded by bunkers left and right leaving a narrow entrance to negotiate.

Hole 14 - Par 4

302M. Stroke 12

A short par 4 but dangerous if you get greedy. Watch out for the water as well as the avenue of trees all the way to the green. A bunker protects the left of the green.

Hole 15 - Par 3

148M. Stroke 14

A fine par 3. One has to negotiate water all the way from tee to green. With bunkers on the left and right of the green, club selection is of utmost importance.

Hole 16 - Par 4

359M. Stroke 4

An interesting par 4, which doglegs to the right after the tee shot. A fairway bunker guards the left side and a menacing tree protects the right. Watch out for the water and bunkers covering the left and right of the green.

Hole 17 - Par 4

332M. Stroke 8

A par 4 played over water in front of the tee, would be no problem as the carry is +/- 50m. Favour the right side of the fairway.

Hole 18 - Par 4

267M. Stroke 16

The shortest par 4 on the course, tricky because of the lake, which cuts into the right side of the fairway. Play short of the water or over the lake. The green is surrounded by bunkers!
