Johannesburg Golf Courses

Gauteng is, to a large extent, the entertainment capital of South Africa. This is the base from which many international and national tourists explore the rest of this exquisite country, especially as a result of being home to the massive OR Tambo International Airport.

Gauteng is a landlocked province in the north-west of South Africa. Although it is renowned for its shopping malls and exciting commercial opportunities, there are many very beautiful outdoor spots throughout the province. Some boast fabulous lakes, others are characterised by seemingly never-ending stretches of verdant grasslands. The golf courses certainly provide some of this province's most spectacular vistas. Rolling greens with towering trees and crystal-clear water features make for idyllic settings in which to immerse oneself for the day.

Golfing is becoming a more and more popular sport as busy men and women feel the need to escape the hubbub of city life and enjoy fresh air and the warm South African sunshine. As a result, the Gauteng courses have, over the years, hosted a number of impressive international competitions. These include the likes of the European PGA and the South African Sunshine Tour. This attracts golfing enthusiasts from all corners of the globe, who choose to spend their vacation relaxing and challenging their skills on South African greens.

More than a third of the top 100 golf courses are within one hour of the epicentre of Sandton. Some of them are opulent and luxurious; others are a little less formal, better suited to the novice. The variety and choice makes Gauteng an international hotspot for keen golfers.
