Lord Francis Scott – who, like Lord Delamere, was one of the biggest landowners in Kenya in the early 20th century – inaugurated the original 9-hole Nakuru golf course in 1929 and it would be another 12 years before a full 18-hole circuit came into play.
Laid out on the slopes of the volcanic Menengai Crater, Nakuru is the only highland course in Kenya and the spectacle from the 8th and 18th tees of blazing coral pink flamingos set against the deep blue colour of nearby Lake Nakuru is one of the finest wildlife sights in all of Africa.
