GREYVILLE RACECOURSE Home to Africa's Greatest Horseracing Event, the Vodacom Durban July, Greyville Racecourse hosts top class horseracing events in South Africa all year round. Framed in the background by the many hotels of Durban's Golden Mile, Greyville Racecourse is situated at the bottom of Durban's Berea and surrounds the green expanse of Royal Durban Golf Club's championship course. Greyville is well known for its Night Racing and has a turf and polytrack so no matter what the weather the show goes on. For seven months of the year Greyville hosts night racing every Friday evening which is extremely popular with the public and features entertainment for the entire family, including a special section just for children. The months of May, June and July celebrate all the horseracing stars when South Africa's top equine athletes descend on Durban for South Africa's Champion Season.

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.
