Nestled in the affluent Johannesburg suburb of Sandton, the River Club Golf Course is one of the most prestigious and coveted golf courses in the country. Here no expense is spared in ensuring the ultimate experience for golfers. However, unlike most golf courses in the country, the River Club is not open to the public and many can only dream at the opportunity of playing here unless they become members or indeed, guests of members.
The course itself comes highly recommended although it is noted that the appeal of the club is more about its exclusivity rather than its playability. That said, it is always kept in absolutely stunning condition and a round here is like a dream. The last five holes are notoriously tough.
The facilities and club house are spectacular. You will find only the finest here. And the old world charm of the clubhouse is well known to have captured the hearts of many a golfer. So go on and get yourself invited by a friend or a friend of a friendís friend ... etc.
