Finding the perfect holiday destination for the whole family is never an easy task. Everyone has their own idea and expectations of what would make for an ideal holiday. For golfers, a golf holiday at Prince’s Grant Rentals will always be top of the list – but what about the non-golfers in the family? It is a well-known fact that you cannot please all the people all the time – but at Prince’s Grant Rentals, we believe we can certainly try to please everyone, whether you play golf or not.
For the golfers – Time to tee-off
Since 1994, Prince’s Grant Rentals is proudly home to one of the most highly rated golf courses in South Africa. The impressive partnership between Peter Matkovitch and Dale Hayes – the course architects and designers – has given rise to a Links/Parklands course with impressive fairways coupled with scenic Indian Ocean views. Uniquely designed to present similar challenges to that of a traditional Scottish Links course, Matkovitch’s philosophy was to create a course with the average golfer in mind, rather than the top professional. So no matter your handicap, playing a round at the Prince’s Grant Golf Course needs to be on your bucket list!
Staying in one of Prince’s Grant Luxury Rentals means you have daily access to the golf course from your front door. If you have forgotten a club, lost too many balls, or if a non-experienced member of the family decides to join you, the onsite Pro Shop has all the latest equipment, clothing, tees, brands and golf balls for all ages.
The golf club is situated just north of Durban International Airport and 10 minutes from Ballito. On arrival, you can rent a golf cart and play a quick 9 holes, or practise your swing beforehand. The North Coast KZN climate allows for year-round golfing, with warm winters, sunshine, and clear blue skies. Ranked as one of the top 20 golf courses in SA and boasting formidable fairways, immaculate greens and challenging bunkers, you will want to play this course more than once. That is the added advantage of holidaying at one of Prince’s Grant’s Rentals.
For the non-golfers – Time to relax, swim, play or explore
At Prince’s Grant, we understand that not everyone has a love for the game of golf and we keep to our promise that there is something for everyone. While the golfing members of your family are out and about on the course, savour the 4-5 hours by taking advantage of all the other local activities on offer. If you are sporty, you can choose between tennis and squash, followed by a refreshing dip in the swimming pool. To relax, spend that time by the pool with a good book or head for a spa treatment at one of the local wellness centres.
For the nature lovers in the family, grab a pair of binoculars and go bird watching or explore the natural coastal forest for local wildlife. Those who are more adventurous can wander down to the lagoon for some canoeing. By the time the golfers return with their scorecards analyzed, you can all head to the local a la carte restaurant for lunch followed by a siesta. An early dinner, followed by a sunset walk on the beach and family game night will be the perfect end to the day. Everyone is happy.
