Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Course

Fairway Avenue, Linksfield North, Johannesburg, Gauteng / The World Atlas of Golf, which lists the great courses and how they are played, features just two South African clubs on its hallowed pages. One is Durban Country Club and the other is Royal Johannesburg, which was established more than 100 years ago.

Royal Johannesburg was initially known only as Johannesburg Golf Club. The club was granted the 'Royal' prefix by King George V in 1931, two years before a second 18-hole course - now the more famous East layout - was built alongside the existing West course.

Crown Mines Golf Club

Gauteng, Johannesburg, Linden - The green fees range from R25 to R185
One of the older clubs in Johannesburg, was actually founded before the first world war. This parkland course offers some very interesting water hazards and are blessed with many trees. Very friendly clubhouse setup with excellent service and well stocked pro-shop.

Germiston Golf Club (18)

Gauteng, Ekurhuleni, Germiston - The green fees range from R60 to R170

Glendower Golf Club (18)

Gauteng, Ekurhuleni, Edenvale - The green fees range from R80 to R250
This extremely well designed course, which opened in 1937, is situated against a tree-covered slope. The superb kikuyu-covered fairways feature numerous hazards and lead to excellent greens. There are 85 bunkers and water comes into play on 11 of the holes Beautiful to look at, and very challenging to play, it has been said that Glendower - as a test of golf - is without equal in South Africa.

Johannesburg Country Club

Gauteng, Johannesburg, Woodmead - The green fees range from R165 to R220
The Country Club, Johannesburg, is one of Africa`s finest golfing facilities, with two high-quality championship courses on a large piece of ground in the plush northern suburbs. The club used to operate exclusively from Auckland Park just west of Johannesburg`s CBD, and that property is still used or a variety of activities.

Linksfield Golf Club (54)

Gauteng, Johannesburg, Linksfield - The green fees range from R20 to R100

Modderfontein Golf Club (18)

Gauteng, Johannesburg, Modderfontein - The green fees range from R25 to R120
This gem of a parkland course was re-designed by Baiocchi, Falkson, and Barnard in 1991. Opened in 1928 and also the home of the AECI Classic. Offers a modern clubhouse overlooking the beautiful course with its dams and streams.

Wanderers Golf Club (18)

Gauteng, Johannesburg, Illovo - The green fees range from R85 to R396
Course development in the past thirty years, design, layout and grass technology have undergone dramatic change. Prior to 1972 very little money seemed to be spent on course improvement. Here on the Highveld golfers resigned themselves to playing on brown fairways and brittle hard greens. The Americans were at the forefront of change and over the years have elevated golf course development and technology to a precise science.
