The Dainfern Country Club golf course forms part of the greater Dainfern residential estate, this piece of land combines and puts on display just how glorious the combination of golfing and residential estate can be.
The course itself, of Gary Player lineage, is located in a picturesque valley just north of Randburg and comes into contact, several times, with the scenic Jukskei River. The 18 hole course has played host to both amateur and professional local championships and promises a challenge on the best of days.
Improvements have been added to the layout and the direction of play has recently been reversed. Facilities are excellent and include a gracious clubhouse, restaurant, ladies bar and patio overlooking the fairways and river. Other activities offered on the estate are swimming, tennis, squash, volleyball, walking, cycling and bird watching from hides. There are even playgrounds for the kids.
The double fairway signature 8th here at Dainfern is sure to keep all kinds of golfers talking at the 19th but the hole definitely favours big hitters that can play with accuracy.
