Nothing here makes you want to come back you wonder why you even went the first time. Sorry but this place has lost its glory days.

Horse racing at its best

If horse racing is of interest, visit this racecourse. It's worth a flutter and the experence. Not too far to travel from Balito/Salt Rock or Pietermartizburg

A great night out in the restaurant overlooking the winning post and dabbling in a few bets..

All weather course with lighting that makes you think it's daylight for evening races. On Friday nights there is a huge buffet. Sadly I always eat too much. Too tempting to go back in between each race for more!! Wednesday lunchtime the buffet is smaller as not so many people there. Wine is extra.

We had a wonderful day at the races, mainly to the kind lady who let us in the Gold lounge even though we had shorts on. Great value for money.

Brilliant afternoon at races. Mutton Curry was first class, Roast Lamb was also a favourite. Some good racing and very comfortable in air conditioned restaurant.

Fun at the races

I was fortunate to have been invited to a horse owners box for the Friday night races at Greyville racecourse last week.Food & drinks were provided for the guests who attended so I honestly cannot compare my experience to that of the ordinary race goer.The facilities we had were great & lots of fun was had by all.

Greyville Race Course - Durban July 2018

Bad experience - I am not going again to Durban July

My jacket and a long sleeve blouse was stolen and 2 pair of glasses.
My night was spoiled and all good time I had. Security was useless to help.
They allowed a group of guys to dance on the stage flour and this is how they took everyone's attention and belongings.
I insist that group is investigated.
I reported my stolen items but seems that all of the security was not interested and useless to help.
I am not going there again because my safety is more precious.

I paid R220 + R220 for my girlfriend.
I got almost nothing included for that money.

There was not much of choice of drinks and food or music.
I did not go there to support Vodacom, Samsung, Dstv, Hunters or Amstel.

Your choice is not focusing on people's choices but on making money.

I travel all the way from Johannesburg. Was waste of time and money.
