Greyville Racecourse


Click on picture to enlarge

The Greyville Racecourse surrounds the Royal Durban Golf Club's Championship course, which provides a picture of green grass and foliage throughout the year framed in the background by the many hotels of Durban's Golden Mile. In 1996, history was made when it became the first track in the country to successfully install floodlights, enabling the course to accommodate night racing at all its midweek meetings. Access to the racecourse from all parts of Durban presents no problem, in view of its situation in the very heart of the city. The track is pear-shaped and covers a distance of 2 800 metres. A road from the Berea to the centre of the city passes under the course, and the construction of the two subways resulted in the course having a number of unusual gradient features: -

  • an uphill section from the 2 400 metre mark up to1 800 metres,
  • thereafter a gentle downward slope for about 800 metres
  • an uphill section follows from the 800 metres into the straight,
  • an almost level 500 metre final straight to Greyville's famed winning post.
