Golf at the Windsor

For all golf enthusiasts, Windsor offers a challenging but pleasant 18 Hole championship golf course.

Windsor Golf Hotel & Country Club was voted as the best golf course in Kenya and the best golf hotel in Africa in the first 2014 Golf Travel Awards held in Portugal. The resort also made news on CNN as being amongst the top 10 city golf clubs in the world.

The championship design and length (7,277 yds) of the course is the centre of attention and deservedly so. It threads its way through coffee farms and indigenous forests with high and low terrain, giving it character and design quality.

The Golf Course boasts lush, springy fairways, fast, true greens and a sprinkling of attractive water hazards with 73 well located sand bunkers and unforgiving roughs make this course a truly challenging experience. Situated at an altitude of more than a mile above sea level (6000ft), the ball will travel 10 yards further than at sea level.

Even for the non-golfer the course is a beautiful walking experience luxuriating in the wonders of nature with bird life, fish, flora and fauna in abundance.

clubhouse Windsor WildlifeGolfThe Club Bar with its hardwood interior and its tall vaulted ceilings offers a cool and relaxing venue for drinks and cocktails after a challenging round of golf. It is open to all golfing and social members from 10:00AM to 1:00AM. It is the welcoming retreat for the victor and the vanquished.

For two decades, the Windsor has held the crown as the finest of Nairobi’s championship golf courses – an honour it is in no danger of ceding any time soon.

Twenty years after it was heralded asKenya’s first truly “international” 18-hole course, The Windsor Golf Hotel & Country Club is still widely celebrated for its captivating blend of world-class championship golf with the more down-to-Earth delights of Africa’s natural heritage. Less than 30 minutes’ drive from downtown Nairobi, you can be playing on immaculate, springy fairways in the company of endearing Sykes monkeys, with the majestic sacred peaks of Mount Kenya and Ol Donyo Sabuk over your shoulder.

Built on a former coffee estate, The Windsor is testament to the enduring vision of Tom Macauley, President of the former British Association of Golf Course Architects, who designed the course with a firm commitment to preserving the exceptional stands of virgin forest that dominate the stunning 220-acre site. The verdant valleys ensure the course remains a critical sanctuary for several significant bird species, including Egyptian geese, black kites, and the majestic brown eagles that soar above its fairways.

The greens are renowned for being fast and true, with intricate challenges offered by 73 bunkers, and lakes and streams bringing water into play on nine separate holes. Two of the greens are completely ringed by water, adding an exhilarating test for both local and visiting golfers.

The Windsor prides itself as a natural “starting point” for international golfers– with its elegant suites and sumptuous facilities ensuring the heights of comfort in Nairobi, as well as a convenient base from which to explore the country’s farther-flung locations.
