Glendower Golf Course, Johannesburg

Glendower Golf ClubGlendower Golf Course is often rated in the top 10 courses in South Africa. Opened in 1937, the club played host to its first major tournament, the Transvaal Open Championship in 1939, won by the great Bobby Locke with a world record score of 265.

During the 80’s, all 18 greens were reshaped and rebuilt, new tee positions were set up, existing water hazards were cleared and extended and new water features were added at a number of holes. The changes have made the club one of the most challenging and beautiful courses in South Africa.

Conveniently located within 10 minutes of Johannesburg International Airport, Glendower is a well designed 6 770m course, situated against a tree-covered slope. The fairways are excellent, featuring numerous hazards and narrowing at the magnificent greens. Water comes into play on 11 of the holes.

Glendower has been prestigious host to the South African Open Championship in 1987, 1993 and 1997. In 1973 the club was proclaimed a Nature Reserve. This proclamation was in order to preserve the excellent bird-life that is to be found on the course. Visitors welcome everyday except Saturdays. Tel: +27 (0)11 453 1013 EmailGlendower Golf Course Website. Address: 20 Marais Rd, Dowerglen ext 2, Edenvale.
