Set in a picturesque valley between the affluent suburbs of Bassonia and Glenvista in southern Johannesburg, the Glenvista Country Club is indeed blessed with its location.

Sid Brews, South Africa’s premier golfer in his day and well-known as golf-course architect, was commissioned to utilize his imagination and expertise, and work started on the course in 1967. It was only in 1973, however, that the course was opened to members.

Today, the Glenvista Country Club is undoubtedly one of the best golf courses around and boasts superb facilities in a truly unique setting.

The course is undergoing seasonal maintenance, so understandable. Once the fairways have recovered, it will be in great condition (a week or two at most).

first time playing at the course and enjoyed the experience, two things that could have made it better, first we were told to speed up our game by the caddie master, which was not our fault the four ball in front of us was slowing the game down. Second the halfway house food menu was very limited, would of like a bit more variety or a menu to see what we can order, if there is one i was unaware of it. All in all a very well kept course and will definitely play it again. Thanks

Glenvista GC is one of South Africa’s hidden golfing gems.  That kind of course that isn’t as well known as a Gary Player, Leopards Creek or Randpark Ridge but you walk off the 18th going “wow, there were some neat holes and what a challenge”.  Unreservedly recommended.  In fact in Joburg area it’s condition is only matched by Wingate GC. A couple of the par-3s are played from raised tees and over water to tree & bunker protected greens.  The 10th, after your Halfway House refreshments is a brain not brawn hole.  And the 9th is an uphill par-4 with a challenging second shot.  So great condition, walkable for exercise, fast but honest greens and a clubhouse bar full of malt whisky, craft beer and low cost, big portion food.
