Randpark Golf Course – Johannesburg

Randpark Golf Course – Johannesburg

Randpark Club has become the ultimate urban golf destination on par with excellence.  Two unique and distinct golf courses – Bushwillow and Firethorn, offers golfers of varying ability an unforgettable experience on two of the finest layouts and best manicured courses in South Africa.  With two courses, renovated Clubhouse, a 5 Star Hotel and Spa, it is one of the most desired clubs in the country.
I want to play this course!

In 1964 the club purchased land with the intention of establishing an additional 18-hole golf course.

Sid Brews designed the ‘Randpark’ championship course and the imposing clubhouse serving both courses was opened on 20th March 1971.

The course has matured over the years and has undergone a number of improvements. In 1990, the greens complexes were completely redesigned by Messrs. Golf Data and architect Mark Muller.

A number of tees were re-aligned and extended, resulting in the championship tees now measuring a total of 7050 metres, with a Par of 72.

The surface of the tees, fairways and semi-rough is Kikuyu grass with Bentgrass (pennlinks) on the greens.

The course carries a high rating and has hosted several high profile tournaments over the years – both men’s and women’s. The South African amateur golfing bodies have also used the course as a worthy golfing examination. Most significantly, Randpark Golf Club has been chosen as a venue for two South African Open Championships in 1995 and 2000.

Let its challenge escape you no longer – play it, it will please you enormously.
