Worthy of its place among Kenya’s most famous tea fields, Limuru Country Club shows that we value fine golf and fine company just as much as our most celebrated commodity.

Set amid the radiant green tea hills that gave rise to Kenya’s main export industry at the start of the 20th century, Limuru Country Club provides a serene and uniquely charming country retreat less than 30 kilometres from the bustle of downtown Nairobi.

Nestled in the foothills of the Uplands Escarpment, as it begins its ascent towards the Aberdare Mountains, the course is spread out over 200 acres of broad, sweeping fairways interwoven with magnificent indigenous trees and alive with the calls and iridescent colours of thousands of beautiful birds.

Golfers are invariably awed by the signature par-5 3rd hole, which enjoys stunning views over the luminous tea plantations as it descends to an immaculate green, bordered by a shimmering dam and rock gardens aglow with exotic flowers.

The club members are a warm and welcoming mix of indigenous Kenyans, old settlers and international expatriates, and the rustic clubhouse has the feel of an old English pub with most of its original features still intact. The hardwood floors and bar, tavern-style settings, and roaring fires lit every night, combine to exude a restful and convivial atmosphere.

Up here at over 2,100 metres, the highland air is crisp and energising, and the view from the clubhouse verandah – a sweeping panorama over the 9th and 18th greens – is the perfect setting for a sundowner, as golfers complete their rounds cheered on by the club’s patrons.
