Schoeman Park Golf Course, Bloemfontein
1904 saw the establishment of Schoeman Park Golf Course when a couple of Scottish railway workers took it upon themselves to construct a nine-hole course to play on. Since that time Schoeman Park has blossomed into a thriving 18-hole course and has in recent years won the coveted Golden Arrow Award for being the Free State’s “most outstanding sports club.”
Though the club has many years of history behind its name, the grounds upon which it stands still belongs to Transnet, the railway company that the Scottish founders worked for.
Today run as a Section 21 organisation, Schoeman Park Golf Club offers a few interesting challenges to the golfer. Tall trees line the narrow fairways and the Parkland style course’s wiry rough can be particularly unforgiving in places. The course also includes several shallow water traps and overall provides a fairly decent test of the golfer’s skill. Visitors are welcomed every day of the week.
Facilities include: Driving range, putting green, rental carts, caddies, pro-shop, teaching pro, bar, halfway house, lounge, restaurant, clubhouse, tennis courts, soccer field, rugby field and cricket fields.
