ABOUT THE CLUB

Based in the western suburb of Rant-En-Dal, – loosely translated from Afrikaans as ”Hills and Valleys” – Krugersdorp Golf Club is one of the oldest clubs on the West Rand. You are very much out in the country when playing this fine golf course, and the huge variety of colourful bird life, indigenous trees, shrubbery, wild, exotic flowering plants and gardens which inhabit the area make the players stroll against this picturesque African backdrop an extremely pleasant and gratifying visual experience.

At a length of 6426 metres from the club tees, Krugersdorp’s stunning par 72 championship layout is a tough but fair test of golf, and this fine piece of course architecture and design requires intelligent, accurate play from tee to green and a good touch when you find them! Depending on the individuals’ prowess, the four outstanding par fives are reachable in two powerful blows but, more often than not, the cautious three-shot route to the green will result in a safe par or possible single-putt birdie. The ten par fours which nestle perfectly into Krugersdorp’s gently rolling and undulating landscape never look out of place and demand accuracy and shape of shot from the tee in order to leave a choice of long, medium and short iron approaches into well protected, fast, undulating greens. Hit the target on four par threes of matchless beauty and a birdie or safe par could be your reward, but danger awaits any misshits or loose play in the form of heavy rough, water and substantial bunkering, thereby placing the golfers short game skills under close scrutiny.

The comfortable clubhouse with its large, thatched African ”Lapa” (gazebo) is the perfect place to wind down after a pleasant round of golf with a long, cold drink in hand, viewing yet another stunning African sunset! Serviced by a highly efficient, friendly staff, Krugersdorp has full bar, restaurant and conference facilities and its affable members will be only too glad to join visiting groups of fellow golfers and help them navigate their way through what can be a long and difficult nineteenth hole!

The General Purposes committee received a letter from the secretary of the Krugersdorp Golf Club asking the council to receive a deputation from the club with reference to certain improvements which they intended to make to the golf course and also with the view of inducing the council to make a grant of money to the club to cover the cost of carrying out such work, and arrangements were accordingly made for the deputation to be received by the Council at their meeting on 24 June 1913.

The deputation, consisting of Dr. Courikan, Dr. Butt, Messrs. Stiebel, Elliot and Heuton and the Council, and laid before the meeting the certain plans for the improvement of the Golf course which was proposed to be carried out. It was stated that the club was in existence for 13 years and had asked for practically no assistance previously and had recently expected the sum of 300 pounds for the erection of the club house, etc., and to enable them to carry out the proposed improvements to the course it was stated that 250 pounds would be required and this sum they asked the Council to grant them.
