REDISCOVER KLOOF COUNTRY CLUB, A HIDDEN GEM WHERE TRADITION MEETS MODERNITY
Members and guests enjoy a tranquil environment at Kloof Country Club – with all the sport, recreational and social activities expected of a country club. The club is one of the largest for membership in Durban and has extremely active golf, tennis, squash, cricket and running divisions. The 18-hole golf course, set in a gorgeous parklike environment, is home to an array of birdlife. Dams not only make the course interesting and challenging to play, but offer beautiful backdrops for peaceful afternoon walks.
A rich heritage fills the club with character. The “club” idea was originated by Tom Field, the owner of the land on which the course was built. Around 50 enthusiastic golfers formed the Kloof & District Golf Club in 1926. Starting out with 223 members, the club used the Field’s Hotel – now known as Fields Centre – as the meeting place, watering hole and function venue of the club in the early years. In 1929 the famous Stafford Vere Hotchkin was contracted to prepare a proposal to extend the course to 18 holes. Thereafter the construction of the road through a portion of the golf course meant more of Tom Field’s land was made available, and this in turn led to the birth of Kloof Country Club and the addition of tennis courts, a cricket oval and squash courts.
Today Kloof Country Club not only welcomes golfers, but members and their guests across various sport disciplines. The main clubhouse offer a social bar and a sunny veranda area with a restaurant. There’s also a swimming pool and a children’s play area. Members have access to the use of the clubhouse, tennis courts, swimming pool, clubhouse change rooms and also enjoy discounted rates on food and beverages. The veranda restaurant – open to the public seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner – is fast becoming known for the exceptional value offered with the Sunday Funday lunch menu. Bookings for Sunday lunch are essential, but you are welcome to pop in for a quick coffee or a meal any time.
Kloof Country Club is also a popular choice for weddings, functions and conferences, and the golf warm-up range is a firm favourite among members – along with a golf team assisting with lessons and tips to help improve your game.
The club’s motto, “where everyone is welcome”, is truly embraced by its management team and staff. Pop in to enquire about membership and enjoy a tour of the club and facilities. Follow the Kloof Country Club facebook page for more information about their quarterly events hosted at the club.
