RNGC is located in very close proximity to vibrant Nairobi city along one of Nairobi's longest roads: Ngong Road. As one tees off hole number 1 and 2, the Ngong Hills are in clear view and form a stunning backdrop to the two opening holes. The course is well maintained with excellent facilities and there is also a swimming pool adjacent to the club house and a squash court. Royal Nairobi Golf Club reciprocates with many Royal Clubs worldwide.

The course itself is fairly long compared to most other Kenyan courses.

The Club hosts one of the most important amateur tournaments: The Tanahill Shield which was inaugurated in 1924 popularly known as the Easter Tournament and has since been played during the Easter Holidays. It is arguably the most prestigious amateur golf event in Kenya. The finest Golfers in the country aspire to be selected to participate for their respective clubs - the criteria being the lowest handicap members.
