Soweto Country Club has come a long way since golf was first played at Pimville in the 1970s on sand greens. Converted to grass by Gary Player Design in the 1980s, the course fell into disrepair until the Sunshine Tour’s Selwyn Nathan championed a complete course rebuild which Phil Jacobs of Gary Player Design completed in 2019.

The original course came about due to black players like Vincent Tshabalala badgering the authorities in Johannesburg for a suitable site and the City of Joburg responded positively again when calls were made to upgrade the facilities, bringing in the PGA Tour, European Tour, R&A and corporate sponsors to help establish a worthy legacy development.

The tree-lined fairways on the refurbished layout lead to new bent grass greens, which really elevate the playing experience to a higher level. There are only three par fives and three par threes in play, with just the one short hole on the back nine at the 17th. There’s also a single water hazard on the entire course, positioned to the right of the putting surface on the 10th hole.

The Black Knight’s playing record is exceptional, he’s one of only five men to win golf’s career Grand Slam, and since the early 1980s Gary Player Design has also been rather successful.
