Review for River Club - Johannesburg

Reviewer Score:


There are only 2 private golf courses in South Africa, called BlairAtholl and the River Club (this excludes 2 or 3 courses owned by wealthy individuals for their persnal use). All other courses in the country can be played by anyone, although some need to be booked well in advance. The Rver Club is the original private cub of South Africa, and therein (probably more than the actual quality of the course) lies its appeal. I have played it 3 times and thoroughly enjoyed each experience, but there are quite a few better courses around. The course is, however, always in fantastic condition, the last 5 holes are as tough and well laid out as you would find anywhere, and the very traditional club house is fantastic. The best aspect of the course, in my opinion, is the halfway house, which offers, among many other treats, a peanut butter and crispy bacon sandwich that is out of this world. I would play the course just for this sandwich! Kem Westdyk, Johannesburg, South Africa
