About Us

Just outside of the village of Kranskop, in the scenic Natal Midlands... St Cathryn’s Country Golf Estate is not your typical golf estate. St Cathryn’s offers you a variety of activities for you and your family to enjoy together. Within 100km radius from Ballito, Pietermaritzburg and Mooi River as well as 115km from King Shaka Airport, we are closer than you think. Sites are on sale and the freehold opportunity allows you to own your own piece of paradise right on the water’s edge - for life.

The challenging 9 hole golf course will keep seasoned and holiday golfers busy for hours. Reasonable Golf  Membership rates are available, Corporate Days and Golf Tour Groups welcomed. We take pride in our comfortable accommodation and delicious home cooked meals.

Join us to fish in one of our two dams or walk the fairways in search of our abundant bird life, and if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of the otters in the dam.

Come and see for yourself ….

The choice is yours. Play a round of Golf, catch bass or trout in one of the dams. Take a leisurely walk or mountain bike ride through the well kept forests and enjoy the peaceful tranquillity of the pristine wetlands. See how many of the 250 bird species you can spot, or marvel at the pair of crested cranes that live nearby. Relax with friends overlooking the dam with sundowners, as the rietbuck and duiker stroll by.

A well maintained golf course is set on 53 Hectares of rezoned farmland, now a golfing estate. Settled in the heart of an unspoilt tourism area sets the scene for time to just fly by. But then, that's what happens when life is filled with fun. Secure your piece of this magic. Self-Catering accommodation available. Freehold ownership is included for you and your family.
