About the Soweto Golf Course

The historic course was re-designed by the country’s much loved golfer, Gary Player. The World Golf Hall of Famer announced at his 80th birthday celebration, held at Soweto Country Club, that he would gladly undertake the golf course redesign at no cost.

There is a new clubhouse, as well as a new practice facility including putting green and bunker practice area, a conference centre to ensure greater financial sustainability for the club beyond its golf course, a new halfway house, and a fence along two boundaries of the golf course for security purposes.
A wall has been built along the south boundary of the golf course, and a fully operational pro shop has been constructed.

Having been established in 1974, it was the only course that accommodated black golf players. In its early years, it only had hardened sand greens and no real fairways to speak of. Still, it was in high demand for its inclusion of players from different ethnic backgrounds. Then, in 1980, it underwent a makeover. The sandy greens were covered in grass and it fell under the formal management of a greens keeper.

Today, this 18-hole golf course remains a great one to play for enthusiasts and weekend golfers alike. It is 6 560 meters long, has a 72 par rating and hosted the Jo’burg Ladies Open and final game of the Sunshine tour 2019.

The course itself was re-designed by acclaimed golfing legend, Gary Player. The facilities here include a bar and halfway house, where golfers can prepare for a day on the greens or can recap on their day’s game with some welcome refreshments.
