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.

Despite having booked well in advance for a 2 ball, another person booked to join us but arrived with 3 extra players. He was given preference and was allowed to tee off before us with his group. We were then reprimanded rudely by the marshal as if the mix-up was our fault.
Other than the rude marshal, the course was in great condition.
