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 as Kenya’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.
Club nights every Wednesday and competitions on Saturdays.
