The Clairwood racecourse has been closed down and as this is now the only one - it is very good to visit. The facilities are clean and all area well marked. Food is a bit of a problem if you dont book .

Recently attended a breakfast conference and was pleasantly suprised to be hosted in a new venue that I had not seen before. Greyville has many different meeting rooms with various shapes and sizes . Eat Greak provided food which was great.
