Gowrie Farm Golf Lodge
Nottingham Road, Drakensberg - Accommodation
Gowrie Farm Golf Lodge in Nottingham Road
The golf course, developed by Guy Smith, has been built in the classic style, with tees close to the ground, gently undulating fairways and push-up greens. The course has the feel of an inland links course and, while it is testing for the good players, it is also enjoyable for the average golfer. It is a par 70, 9-hole course, which has two additional holes. As a result, this gives the course variety and interest and the golfer has the feel of playing an 18 hole rather than a 9 hole.
The magnificent stone Clubhouse boasts five luxury, 4 star double rooms all overlooking the lake and golf course. These are run on a bed and breakfast basis. Lunches are served at Halfway House; evening meals may be enjoyed at the local restaurants, of which there are several within 5 kilometers of Gowrie Farm.
Overlooking the 6th green is the Old Tom Morris Cottage which is ideal accommodation for 2 four balls. Old Tom Morris Cottage has four bedrooms, all en-suite, as well as an open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen area with beautiful views over the golf course and Clubhouse. This is run as self-catering, luxury accommodation. Being nestled within the heart of South Africa’s premier arts and crafts routes of the Midlands Meander, Gowrie Farm offers a plethora of activities for those looking for somewhere to while away the time. Visitors who relish the idea of the relaxation and pampering that only a Health Spa can bring, there is also a choice of quality Spas available within close proximity.
For the outdoor enthusiast, Nottingham Road offers wonderful cycling with quiet roads out in the Camberg, Loteni and Dargle valleys. There are also a number of mountain bike routes and wonderful hiking trails in the nearby foothills of the Drakensberg. For keen birders, over 200 birds have been identified on Gowrie Farm itself.

Accommodation is stylish and very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and its worth taking a stroll to take in the scenery. The rooms are tastefully decorated, with all of the amenities one would expect. Highly recommend place to stay in Nottingham Road area.
Very neat and the food is good. Will definitely go back.
One of the best golf courses. The club house and lodge are so inviting and family orientated. Not old school at all. Love it!
It's a quite place with a nice view
My favorite course to play in KZN, an absolute gem!
Great place for a weekend break away with plenty to do in the area also proud of there golf course even if it is only 9 holes
Pleasant and helpful staff. The estate has a tranquil atmosphere. The bed and breakfast accommodation does not offer any mini fridge in the room, and no air conditioning. But there's a fan is supplied
Great little golf course in good condition for winter. The 18th is a real test into the wind. Will definitely be playing here again soon.
Although our extremely comfortable room was beautifully and tastefully furnished, had good quality towels and sheets, double-glazed windows, a tea and coffee station as well as the usual complimentary toiletries, there were negatives that stopped me giving this review 5 stars. Being mid winter, with frost outside, our room was freezing and we were very surprised there was a fan but no heater. The other item missing was an information book in the room with details such as the facilities available at the lodge, places we could go for supper, meal times etc. With all the available accommodation in the area, we also felt it was on the pricey side for what we got. Staff in the dining room gave good service with a smile.
No hesitation in recommending Gowrie. Accommodation & staff all amazing. Will definitely be back if we ever in the Midlands again.
