Randpark’s renowned Firethorn course hosted two South African Opens and many other tournaments. The course celebrated its 1st birthday on the 11th of March 2016. There are seven holes, 18 new greens and greens complexes which were moulded into shape by internationally acclaimed course shaper Alex Ligowski. Sean Quinn designed the Firethorn course, he has been a Jack Nicklaus designer since 2004, but held a dual design role with Golf Data until the end of 2013.
My old club going back 22 years. I am fortunate to come back and play the course every few years! My recent round and experience was nothing less than flawless. Course, after the open in perfect condition, pace of play good and a great test of golf. Thanks to Pro-shop (Kobus) for lending me a driver for free. Thank you!!.. Good value as a guest too. Restaurant and setting is stunning. Entertained a business guest for lunch on another day while in JHB. Thank you for continuing to allow me to play this great course since leaving for the UK in 1998.

This would be a ten as the course was in such incredible condition ahead of the SA Open sadly there were no pace marshals and the whole round we waited on almost every shot. I even called the club to send marshals but they never arrived.
