General Information

Johannesburg Country Club banner.

The Country Club, Johannesburg, is one of Africa`s finest golfing facilities, with two high-quality championship courses on a large piece of ground in the plush northern suburbs. The club used to operate exclusively from Auckland Park just west of Johannesburg`s CBD, and that property is still used or a variety of activities. The Woodmead course opened in 1968 and Woodlands followed in 1992. Both are splendid 18-hole layouts with opinion sharply divided as to which is the better one of the two.

The history of Johannesburg extends back to 1886 when George Harrison discovered gold on the farm Langlaagte. Gold Diggers and fortune hunters arrived in droves and soon a tent town had sprung up, which later became the city that is now South Africa`s main commercial centre.

Gold was the catalyst which brought Johannesburg into being, and the city`s identity will always be closely linked with gold. In the heart of the city, mine dumps are constant reminders of the city`s origins. Appropriately enough, iGoli, the Nguni name for Johannesburg, is derived from the word “gold”.

The city is high voltage nouveau rich territory; fast paced, fun, a modern cosmopolitan metropolis packed with vitality and verve. Apart from an exciting pleasure repertoire, superb hotels, restaurants and shopping centres pander to people with five-star tastes. In quiet, leafy suburbs, baronial mansions in manicured gardens lined with limousines testify to the fact that Johannesburg, at the top of the super-tax bracket, is a very affluent society.

In the central business district, fortunes are made by the astute on the Stock Exchange each day. Skyscrapers tower over chic boutiques, aromatic Indian bazaars, and African muti (medicine) shops where traditional healers dispense advice and herbal remedies. And jets from near and far soar overhead en route to Johannesburg International Airport, the major gateway to South Africa.
