Review for Houghton

Reviewer Score:


A very pleasant escape from the hustle and bustle of Joburg city.

The new layout initially had its critics but the improvements are in my opinion very good and make for a good day out. The conditions are fantastic - you wont find truer and quicker greens in the Joburg area. The greens are heavily undulating so don't be surprised if you're putting average suffers on this course!

Standout holes for me are the Par-3 7th over water, the long Par-4 12th which demands accuracy with a long-iron approach to a heavily guarded green and the Par-4 18th which is a fantastic finishing hole.

You wont be blown away by the course and there are not many memorable holes, but altogether the course provides a very good test.
