In Lanseria, Johannesburg, the Blair Atholl Golf Course is a private course that is available for members only. But, it is well worth it when one considers the undeniable beauty of the course and its surrounds, which create an idyllic backdrop to your game.
The course is characterised by magnificent flora, and a liberal smattering of birds and other little animals that have made this their home. The perfect grass combination for the fairways and greens is still being tested, and golfers can look forward to a variety of grasses that differ in texture and that affect the way that the ball rolls, amongst other things. The modern facilities complement the classic style and elegance of the estate to perfection, assuring players of something very special.
There are 11 water featured holes, some of which showcase the Crocodile River while others feature the natural dams. The course is a single loop, which means that there are no parallel holes (except for the first and 18th holes).
The in-house pro shop is a great addition to the Blair Atholl offering. There is also a driving range for those who want to practice their swing or just hit a few balls between appointments. Golf carts are available for hire.
