Bryanston Golf Course, Bryanston
Bryanston Golf Course at Bryanston Country Club, Bryanston Drive, Sandton, Johannesburg / The cover is cynodon, which is a strain of bent grass. Another feature of the Bryanston Golf course is the abundance of water hazards and it's possible to 'dunk one in the drink' on all but five of the 18 holes.
The Golf Course
The Bryanston Golf Course plays to an unusual par 73 and is 6,576 metres long. With 13 of the 18 holes featuring water hazards, Bryanston Country Club presents an exacting challenge. Birdies are at a premium and hitting the fairways and the greens is an art to be mastered.
A round at Bryanston begins in unusual fashion with two par-fives, followed by the 412-metre par-four 3rd hole which is stroke one on the card. This is a tight driving hole where water is very much in play, making for an exacting tee shot played with a great deal of confidence.
The approach is exceptionally demanding as the green is a narrow one from front to back. This puts a high premium on club selection and accuracy. The 403-metre par-four 16th is another very good test. Here, the trick is to avoid the water hazard on the left, before crossing more water on the approach.
