Benoni Golf Course and Country Club is located on Johannesburg’s East Rand and serves as a wonderful break from the city yet remains within the city. Though with five dams, a forest of trees, Springbok, Blesbok, Duiker and Steenbok you would be forgiven for thinking that you had left it all behind.
The course, paired high-end with facilities has ranked inside the Top 100 golf courses in South Africa for a number of years and dishes out a healthy challenge to pro and amateur golfers alike. The course meanders gracefully over its 6,580m and all 18 holes of this par 73 have something to offer, including bunkers on every hole.
The Five par-five’s and are especially fun but none can really compare to the 18th where a dam and forest line the length of it before finishing neatly just on front of the clubhouse where you can settle into the magnificent 19th and enjoy a round or two after the game.
