Selborne was created in 1985 when a well known local sugar farmer and dairy farmer, Denis Barker, purchased Selborne Park in 1979 which was used as his family home and to run his pedigree Jersey cattle herd. In 1985, following a visit to the United States and Canada, Denis decided to build a golf course on the property. Together with a handful of local friends who offered support and advice, Denis designed and built the beautiful 18 hole golf course with his younger son, Gary and Selborne duly became South Africa's first golf estate. In many ways, the privately owned and built Selborne golf course, which was voted 7th best in SA in its 3rd year, was the catalyst for what has become a booming "golf estate industry".
Today some call it the most spectacular 18 holes in southern Africa. Wild coastal forest frames a superbly manicured course where the only disturbance may be one of nature’s creatures.
Testiment to the high standing it has within the golfing community is the number of high profile events which are played on the course during the year. These include The Vodacom Origins of Golf tournament on the Sunshine Winter tour, the KZN Strokeplay and the Golf Digest Subscriber Challenge.
Visitors are most welcome to Selborne and may have full use of the club facilities whilst they are here to play golf.
It is advisable to book your golf to avoid disappointment. All visitors are required to provide the full necessary particulars when making a booking.
