Nyeri Golf Club
The Nyeri Club has the second oldest golf course in Kenya. The Club was started by Reggie McClure and G. Sandbach Baker in 1910. The first nine-holes were laid out in the same year.
The difficult mountainous course offers exquisite scenery well protected greens, deep roughs and very tall evergreens plus a stream and a valley all contribute in making it a tough course.
This 45,000-acre attractive private conservancy 30 km north of Nyeri on the Nyahururu Rd has been a huge success story for the breeding of black rhinos, and is credited with saving it from extinction. It is the one place in Kenya where you’re guaranteed to spot rhino, both the black and white rhino – and not just one or two, but quite possibly dozens at a time. Within the park is the exclusive and upmarket Solio Lodge, run by the Safari Collection, while about a five-minute drive from the conservancy is Rhino Watch Lodge, the more affordable option.
