Locked down, but not out!

Locked down, but not out!

When the country recently moved back up to lockdown level 4, the hospitality industry collectively held its breath – how long would they be prevented from fully trading this time? What has become blatantly clear throughout the COVID pandemic over the last 16 months, is that only businesses that have been able to pivot and reinvent their offerings have survived and been able to roll with the punches. So rather than resting on its laurels, one of Durban’s most established Country Clubs has done exactly that.

According to Gerard Metzer, General Manager of the Durban Country Club (DCC), the board realised that with times being tough, they needed to think out of the box and came up with an irresistible “Country Membership” offering. At a whopping 70% off, who wouldn’t want to drive down the greens of one of the top 100 golf courses in the world? This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is specifically for golfers who live more than 50km outside of Durban and enables them to join as full golfing members for only R2400 (this is a massive saving of R6000). And there’s no catch or no fine print that you need to be concerned about.

Metzer adds that DCC also understands that golf is not everybody’s cup of “tee”, and with so many people struggling to stay positive and motivated as lockdown drags on, they wanted to ensure that more families were able to exercise and relax in a safe environment. “That’s why we introduced the brand new “Sports Membership”, which will grant families full access to exclusive sporting and leisure facilities that include six all weather tennis courts, six squash courts, kids’ zones, a swimming pool (and even a newly-built sports bar – once we’ve moved out of level 4)”. Incredibly, this Country Club lifestyle is now available for only R1500 per year – and at what equates to just R125 per month, how can you not take advantage of this phenomenal deal?

While the new Grimaldi’s restaurant and Champions Bar are closed for sit-down service and there’s no alcohol on sale, for now, there’s still a limited ‘Grab and Go’ Menu for the Halfway House and Verandah, as well as a fabulous pizza and pie takeaway service until 5 pm daily.

With its world class sporting and leisure facilities, the Durban Country Club is a fitness hub, social retreat, and place of entertainment and relaxation for the whole family. The Club is also preparing to celebrate its centenary in 2022 in style, so make sure that you don’t miss out!
