Combining tradition with the most challenging golf course in the region, Muthaiga Golf Club is a must play for any visiting golfer.

Muthaiga Golf Club, proudly called the ‘Home of Golf’ by its elite membership, is in many ways the ultimate embodiment of Kenya’s unique marriage of ancient golf tradition and a modern 18-hole championship golf course.

As the club prepares to celebrate its long-awaited centenary, Muthaiga Golf Club has also been reborn as one of the most prestigious and challenging courses in the region.

The force behind this renaissance is an extensive course reconstruction by the celebrated South African golf architect, Peter Matkovich, which in 2004 returned Muthaiga to prominence as the finest course with the fastest greens in East Africa.

The Kenya Open, which is part of the European PGA Challenge Tour, is hosted at Muthaiga Golf Club every year and visitors can bask in the knowledge that many greats of the game have walked this way before – with names like Lyle, Ballesteros, Faldo and Singh etched on the clubhouse boards.

Winding through the lush woodlands of Karura Forest, Muthaiga Golf Club offers a great ambiance, with its tree-lined fairways interspersed with numerous lakes and ponds. The water features are a breeding ground for magnificent Egyptian Geese, while monkeys frolic on the 522-yard doglegged 4th hole and the par-3 5th.

With lots of tradition and a most challenging golf course, Muthaiga Golf Club is a must play for any golfer visiting Kenya.
