Nakuru Golf Club 18 hole golf course was opened built in 1923, opened in 1929 by Lord Francis Scott, extended to 18 holes in 1935 and rests peacefully on the slopes of the volcanic Menengai Crater. It is the only uphill course in Kenya – the rolling fairways gradually lead to the mostly uphill greens. Spectacles of the blazing coral pink flamingo patches dotting the deep blue hue of Lake Nakuru, greet your eyes on the 8th and 18th tees. In the dry season, the course is difficult to play due to lack of a proper watering system. This championship course is visually pleasing and has some unusual challenges and therefore exciting to play.
Lake Nakuru is the only uphill course in Kenya, it is challenging yet enjoyable for the average golfer.
The course offers stunning views of the lake with its millions of flamingoes, as well as of Menegai crater and the distant Rift Valley escarpments.
The club's annual event is the Coronation Trophy.
