Our Useful Features & Services

Situated in the Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, Bosch Hoek Golf Club was first acquired by the legendary industrialist “Punch” Barlow.

The celebrated golf course architect Robert Grimsdell was commissioned to design and lay out Barlow’s own nine-hole course on his farm in the Natal Midlands.

The first shot on Bosch Hoek was played in 1963, and thereafter for thirty years the club remained in the private domain of Barlow and his friends.

After Barlow died in 1979, his stepson Peter Gallo acquired the farm and continued to maintain the golf course as a private facility.

In 1990, Gallo formed the Bosch Hoek Golf Club and Country Estate and sometime later sold the development to the homeowners of the estate, who in turn sold the golf course to the current owner, South African entrepreneur, Ivan Clark.

The Bosch Hoek course has the advantage of being surrounded by glorious countryside, and the residential estate, wisely restricted to only 35 properties, is positioned well away from the playing areas. This is a beautiful country course with loads of charm, and the ideal place for a relaxing game of golf in peaceful surroundings.

During the months of March through May, Bosch Hoek, with its deciduous Oaks, Pin Oaks, Liquid Ambers and Plane Trees lining the fairways, transforms into a blaze of Autumn splendor.

The quaint clubhouse, tastefully decorated with a blend of modern and historic period pieces, is alluring during the Winter months, in front of the fireplace, many a good book and fine wine can be enjoyed in the company of its welcoming members.

The property also boasts a highly regarded equine hospital, offering state-of-the-art facilities.

Bosch Hoek is a hidden treasure, one of those enduring classics that has remained faithful to its original design, and hopefully will be preserved so for generations to come.
