This racecourse is situated in the middle of the bustling city of Durban. It has all the amenities the racing fraternity can wish for. And if you are a golfer there is a magnificent golf course in the middle of the racecourse. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!!

This year was my fourth cconsecutive year to visit the worl renowned Durban July Race Meeting. The level of organisation is incredible given that over 60,000 people were present. Our dining option had been prebooked and the catering and service was incredible for such a venue.

Ther did not seem to be any problem at any stage with people in queues for any particular service and there was an efficent taxi service after racing.

Well Done Greyville !

A visit to the Craft Fair at Greyville is a must every year. Parking is easy and venue nicely placed. Food is very good too.

Love going there for race meetings. Excellent quality food and facilities. Brilliant to have a TV monitor on each table which is connected to a variety of channels.

On non race days you can walk your dogs or take a jog around the track. Leads not required for dogs - great socialisation opportunities and a very popular doggie spot.

Pleasant walk of approx 5 km (I think) to walk all the way round. The golf course situated in the middle of the course and the architecture of surrounding buildings which makes for a very scenic walk. The complete walk takes about 35 minutes.

It is safe during daylight hours for solo walkers / runners.
