Durban, South Africa

Rumpled fairways, dune valleys, Indian Ocean breezes and serious history (Gary Player, Bobby Locke and Ernie Els have won multiple South African Opens here) make it a must-play. Located less than 100 meters from the Indian Ocean’s Golden Coastline, Durban is a 1922 design from Laurie Waters and George Waterman. Waters, a Scot who apprenticed under Old Tom Morris and later emigrated to South Africa, won four South African Opens, including the very first ever played, in 1903.
