Where country quality and relaxation meet
Something for everyone


We would like to warmly welcome you to the Umhlali Country Club and Golf Estate Website.

Umhlali Country Club and Golf Estate is not only one of the best courses on the North Coast but a great attraction for members, visitors and families. We offer an 18 Hole Peter Matkovich designed course that is green all year round, 5 top notch tennis courts of which 3 are floodlit, 2 recently revamped squash courts, 2 AA rated bowls greens one with flood lights for some fun evening bowls and a full driving range with 2 chipping greens, practice putting green and a bunker or 2 to practice those sandy shots.

Umhlali Country Club and Golf Estate has a long history on the North Coast founded by some of the well-known families in the then small town of Ballito.

Their vision certainly laid the foundation for the continued growth and success of the club.

The club continues to go from strength to strength and we strive to provide a welcoming and relaxed environment for the young and the more experienced. We hope you will enjoy your time at Umhlali whether it be for a game, function or just a visit, while enjoying the fine cuisine catered by Mamma G’s at Umhlali.

“Umhlali where we treat our visitors like members and our members like royalty”

Kind Regards, John Boyce
