Goldfields West Golf Course, Carletonville
Goldfields West Golf Course, East Driefontein Mine, Carletonville, Gauteng / The Goldfields West Golf course meanders through a nature reserve, which is naturally a most relaxing and a completely unspoiled environment where buck are free to roam and the birdlife is prolific.
The well-watered Gold Fields West (par-72) is a relatively short course by modern standard and the five par-fives, which each measure less than 470 metres, all offer birdie opportunities. It is even possible for the golfer of medium strength to get close to the greens with two full shots.
The superb fairways are fairly wide and the greens are big and receptive. This helps to compensate for the difficulties which the golfer may experience with the putting blade.
The original clubhouse at Gold Fields West was a conversion of a late 19th-century farmhouse which served as a supply depot on the stagecoach run from Jo-burg to Potchefstroom. Ruts of the old road can still be seen on parts of the course.
