Kenya Railway Golf Club

The Railways is a fun course to play, especially if you are lucky enough to have your game coincide with a train passing through the course.

It was established in 1922 as a private club for the Railway staff by the Kenya Railway Manager's wife, Mrs Couper, as the Kenya Uganda Railway Golf Club (K. U. R. G.C.).

The club opened its membership to non-railways staff in 1924.

Kenya Railway Golf Club, as it is today known, is situated in the Central Business District of Nairobi, between Uhuru Highway and Lower Hill Road, with its entrance off Haile Selassie Avenue. It is a remarkable nine hole par 72 course boasting lush greens, “tight” fairways, beautiful mature trees, a clubhouse, changing rooms and cabro carpark in Nairobi’s green-belt. This club of about 500 members helps oxygenate and add colour to the Business District’s concrete jungle, and has the distinction of being one of the only golf courses in the world – if not the only one – that has a fully functioning railway line traversing the course, over which golfers must strike their golf balls during a round. Indeed, it is fabled that the longest drive on this course has been a ball hit all the way to Kisumu!
