Vereeniging is best known for its manufacturing industries, but certainly has some surprises for visitors wanting to enjoy the untouched loveliness of the Gauteng countryside. The Riviera on Vaal Country Club is situated in this historical coal mining town, on the banks of the mighty Vaal River, and is known for its serene feel and its beautiful course layout.
This premium golf course is as challenging as it is scenic, with a number of unusual holes and water hazards. The fairways and greens are well cared for, with an attention to detail that is evident in the course quality. There is also a 9-hole pitch and putt course with a par 3 and floodlighting, which is great for amateurs too.
The elegant clubhouse is perfectly placed to make the most out of the lovely views. The bar and social area make for fabulous places to relax with fellow sportsmen after a game and compare tales of the fairways. There are other sporting facilities at Riviera on Vaal; including squash courts and tennis courts. An added feature is the club’s commitment to ladies’ golf, and their many efforts to focus on and encourage this sphere.
The conference facilities here are well equipped and popular for meetings, product launches, and brainstorming sessions. Johannesburg, its malls and the OR Tambo International Airport are less than an hour’s drive from Riviera on Vaal.
