The Windsor Hotel & Country Club golf course is rated as one of the best in Kenya. Situated just 17km from Nairobi centre, there are views of the city and the distant Aberdare Mountains your way up the drive leading to the hotel. From the golf course you get a lovely view of Mt Kenya and on a clear day, a glimpse of Ol’Doinyo sabuk and The Ngong hills.
Designed by Tom Macaulin, the course was opened to much acclaim in 1992 and continues to be a popular choice for international tournaments. The championship layout is fairly hilly, and punctuated by numerous water hazards. At 7,277 yards from the back tees, it presents a considerable challenge for all levels of golfers.
The golf course threads its way through coffee farms and pockets of indigenous forests with changing elevations, giving it character and design quality. The lush, springy fairways, fast, true greens and plethora of attractive water hazards are supplemented by 73 well located bunkers and unforgiving rough that flanks the layout.
Situated at an altitude of more than a mile above sea level, golfers can benefit from a little extra distance as the ball will travel 10 yards further than at sea level. The course is a beautiful walking experience with bird life, fish, flora and playful Syke’s monkeys in abundance.
