Challenging course with some long par 3, par 4 and par 5 holes. Would have been nice to have a golfcart and be able to have booked thIs at the time of booking.

I was orginally booked to the play the west Course, but the East Course opened and it was immaculate!  Course staff were very friendly.  Relative to other courses I've played, the pro shop was light on items with the course name on it.  Booked a caddie who was very helpful.  The only reason why I did not give a rating of 10 was I paid R720 for the round of golf and R600 for rental clubs.  I don't normally rent clubs so Don't know if this is a fair price, but that seemed kind of high.  That aside, I would highly recommend playing the Johannesburg and Kensington East Course.

Great course and nice lunch restaurant. There was a bit of confusion between the caddies one hole 1 and my set I borrowed had a mix of different clubs and brands.
