ROYAL NAIROBI GOLF CLUB

Course Information
18 holes, par 72
Distance (men’s): 7021 yards
Distance (ladies’): 5756 yards
Opened: 1906

The land along Ngong Road, not far from the city centre of Nairobi, used to belong to the King Africa Rifles (K.A.R.), the elite guard of the British colonial powers in the early 1900’s.
Like most other Kenya golf courses at the time, the initial lay out was with browns 1) which were converted into greens in 1950. In that same year, Royal Nairobi Golf Club became a true championship golf course with a refurbished club house as well. In the meantime the club is now in its 3rd club house!
The front nine is relatively flat, while the back nine have the characteristic of a rolling hillside. The course is very well maintained, while the hallmarks of Royal Nairobi Golf Course are the tees and the greens. Without exception these are the largest tees found in Kenya and are tiered for the various players i.e. Championship, Medal and Ladies tees.
The greens hold the ball very well, while at the same time providing a quick putting surface. Flowering bushes, bougainvillea and a huge variety of tree species lend colour and aesthetic appeal to the course. The lovely Ngong Hills can be seen from different viewpoints all along the course.

Set amid the radiant green tea hills that gave rise to Kenya’s main export industry at the start of the 20th century, Limuru Country Club provides a serene and uniquely charming country retreat less than 30 kilometers from the bustle of downtown Nairobi.
Nestled in the foothills of the Escarpment, the course is spread out over 200 acres of broad, sweeping fairways interwoven with magnificent indigenous Africa trees and alive with the calls and iridescent colors of thousands of beautiful birds.
Golfers are invariably awed by the signature par-5 3rd hole, which enjoys stunning views over the luminous tea plantations as it descends to an immaculate green, bordered by a shimmering dam and rock gardens aglow with exotic flowers.
The club members are a warm and welcoming mix of indigenous Kenyans, old settlers and international expatriates, and the rustic clubhouse has the feel of an old English pub with most of its original features still intact. The hardwood floors and bar, tavern-style settings, and roaring fires lit every night, combine to exude a restful and convivial atmosphere.
At over 2,100 meters, the highland air is crisp and energizing, and the view from the clubhouse verandah – a sweeping panorama over the 9th and 18th greens – is the perfect setting for an Africa sundowner.

Distance (ladies’): 5,631 yards (Applicable for Professional and Championship tournaments)

One of the first courses to draw overseas golfers to Kenya, Sigona remains one of the high flyers of golf in Africa and continues to draw unexpected visitors to its fairways. Originally constructed as one man’s fancy in 1938, Sigona Golf Club has brought delight to thousands of avid golfers over the past 70 years. The course was the farsighted dream of Mr. Jack Berkley-Matthews, head of the Kikuyu Estates agricultural company, who built his own personal nine-hole course.
More than 30 years later, Berkley-Matthews’ dream was completed when Sigona became an 18-hole championship course. Today, Sigona’s hilly Kikuyu-grass fairways are widely regarded as among the lushest, most beautiful, and most challenging in Africa.
Sigona’s original course was routed around an elephants’ watering hole – the reason for the elephant’s head on its striking club logo. The yellow-flowering wattles that divided the fairways have since been joined by a rich variety of shade and ornamental trees: podos, moringas, cape chestnuts and pines.
There are unexpected surprises to be had here: golfers have been known to be disturbed by a variety of antelopes, including the majestic Beisa oryx, as well as a number of smaller mammals and Central Kenya’s ever magnificent birdlife.

Muthaiga Golf Club, proudly called the ‘Home of Golf’ by its elite membership, is in many ways the ultimate embodiment of Kenya’s unique marriage of ancient golf tradition and a modern 18-hole championship golf course.
As the club prepares to celebrate its long-awaited centenary, Muthaiga Golf Club has also been reborn as one of the most prestigious and challenging courses in Africa.
The force behind this renaissance is an extensive course reconstruction by the celebrated South African golf architect, Peter Matkovich, which in 2004 returned Muthaiga to prominence as the finest course with the fastest greens in East Africa.
The Kenya Open, which is part of the Africa leg of the European PGA Challenge Tour, is hosted at Muthaiga Golf Club every year and visitors can bask in the knowledge that many greats of the game have walked this way before – with names like Lyle, Ballesteros, Faldo and Singh etched on the clubhouse boards.
Muthaiga Golf Club offers a great ambiance, with its tree-lined fairways interspersed with numerous lakes and ponds. The water features are a breeding ground for magnificent Egyptian Geese, while monkeys frolic on the 522-yard doglegged 4th hole and the par-3 5th.
With lots of tradition and a most challenging golf course, Muthaiga Golf Club is a must play for any golfer visiting Kenya.
