Gooderson Monks Cowl Golf Resort is situated in the Central Drakensberg approximately four hours from Johannesburg and two and a half hours from Durban, in the magnificent Champagne Valley. The Golf Resort is next door to Champagne Sports and Racket and adjoining the popular Cathkin Estate Development.
Situated on the golf course we have 18 new Superior Double Rooms with en-suite bathroom and veranda and two freestanding thatch rooms. We are in the process of building an additional 18 Superior Double rooms, a Honeymoon Suite and 8 x 6 Sleeper Self-catering units that will all be ready by mid December 2014.
Tea and coffee making facilities are available in all the rooms. A short walk through our gardens takes you to our a’ la Carte restaurant where breakfasts are served any time between eight and eleven am. During winter a log fire adds to the cosiness of our restaurant and pub. In addition to our 142-seater restaurant we have a function room,which seats 40 – 80 guests. This venue has its own bar and ablutions as well as sound system and big-screen projector and is ideal for weddings, parties and conferences.
We offer resident guests free use of our swimming pool and tennis courts, plus restaurant and pub facilities in a casual, homely environment. The golf course has a couple of dams and a river with a small waterfall plus swing bridge for those a little more adventurous! For those golfers still at “caddy” status a pleasant walk around the course may be enjoyed. Alternatively motorised golf cars are available. The best walks and hiking trails in the foothills of the Drakensberg are only a ten-minute drive from here. Adventure put-put course and newly built rock pool with waterfall is also available.
Facilities within a 15 kilometre radius include horse riding, paintball, trout fishing, river rafting, quad biking and bowling greens as well as a bird of prey display centre and the world renowned Drakensburg Boys Choir.
