Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club, Johannesburg

#1 of 10 in Golf in Johannesburg
Golf Course · Hidden Gem · Outdoor Activity
Two beautiful parkland Layouts, characterised by tall well established trees which line the fairways. The two courses compliment each other perfectly by the contrasting challenge they offer the golfer.

The East Course is ranked in the top 10 golf courses in South Africa and has played host to 7 South African Opens and the Joburg Open since it's inception in 2007. It is long and challenging and will test even the best golfers.

The West Course is a more forgiving layout than the East and is preferred by many higher handicap golfers. Not quite as long or penal as the East but the manicuring is on a par, making for a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf.

  • Two golf courses to choose from. The East course has recently been revamped and it has been awarded multiple awards of late I was told that both courses are rated world class. We played the new East Course. Well manicured; beautiful; amazing course to play.
  • Attention all golfers, amazing:ing cource with great facilities. Greens and fairways are exceptionally maintained. Men's change rooms have everything you could need even additional hairbrushes. Affordable and well worth the money. Halfway house has great service. Additional lounge areas available to escape the hustle and bustle. Cant go wrong.
