Click here for Mount Edgecombe accommodation
Mount Edgecombe has come a long way in the last two decades - from a 'sleepy village' lying amongst the sugarcane plantations, to an upmarket residential area graced with not one, but two magnificent golf estates. Superb Star Graded Mount Edgecombe B&B's offer golfers, business executives, wedding guests, travellers and tourists luxury accommodation within the beauty of the prestigious Mount Edgecombe Golf Estate.
Visitors to Mount Edgecombe are offered the best of all worlds - the opportunity to reside in a luxurious golf estate, while still being close to Umhlanga's many leisure attractions, as well as Umhlanga Ridge's corporate complexes. The N2 and N3 freeways are also nearby, providing immediate access to Durban's hotspots, as well as the KZN North and South Coasts, Pietermaritzburg and the Midlands, making Mount Edgecombe an ideal destination for holidaymakers and visiting business executives alike.
Known as 'the golfers dream', Mount Edgecombe is home to the Mount Edgecombe Country Club, which provides world class restaurants, conference facilities, tennis, squash and bowling clubs, as well as Mount Edgecombe One and Mount Edgecombe Two - championship golf courses designed to USGA specifications.
Mount Edgecomber One is an extremely established and attractive golf course with a parkland layout. With four sets of tees, the course is playable by golfers of any handicap.
Mount Edgecombe Two is undulating, with indigenous bush and its share of imposing water hazards. This course is challenging, but fair, and is where a serious golfer can test his skills, and an occasional golfer can still enjoy the game.
