Note: the course has re-opened for visitors, with social distancing and Covid-19 safety guidelines 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 in great shape. The 5 star rating is due to a member - who is a complete racist - shouting at a 4 ball about to tee off "you don't know who i am, and you better respect me cause i'll hurt you!". Not interested in playing at club with members like that. Mixed golfing experience.
