Located just north of central Johannesburg in one the cities more verdant & affluent suburbs, Killarney Country Club is both easy to access and provides the perfect “inner city” golfing experience. The lush grounds of the Robert Trent designed course are magnificently maintained and are complemented by tall Highveld trees that burst into shades of fire during the autumn. In fact, to say that Killarney Country Club is one of the better looking courses around would be an understatement.
The club, formerly known as The Transvaal Automobile Club (TAC) was initially formed in 1903 and has today been moved twice to its present location in 1970, here in Houghton.
The course itself has made the most of its Kikuyu fairways and bent greens to offer an excellent challenge to all varieties of golfer. The total length is measured at 6404m and a ladies tee is offered at 5294m. Visitors are gladly welcomed.
Other facilities include four bowling greens (one of which is floodlit), eight all-weather tennis courts (four of which are floodlit), six squash courts (one of which is glass-walled and features a grandstand), a fully equipped gymnasium, swimming pool, sauna and banqueting and conference facilities.
