About Limuru Country Club

We have a rich history

History

Golfing in the Limuru area began back in 1926 when local farmers Scott, Bradshaw and some neighbours established a course and hotel at what is now the Brakenhurst Baptist Conference Centre. However, the land was sold years later and local golfing enthusiasts began the quest for a new facility. Negotiations with the government over 80 hectares (200 acres) of Crown land began in 1945.

Facilities

Fancy 18 holes of scenic and challenging golf? Or a golf lesson or two? A game of tennis or squash? How about lawn bowls on our magnificent bowling green? Perhaps a weekend of cricket? Maybe a swim? Like to take the fresh air about the golf course or along our jogging track? Or enjoy a beverage and snack while the children make use of our kids play area?
