Note: the course has re-opened for visitors, with social distancing and Covid-19 safety guidelines Without question, Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club is one of the most prestigious golf clubs in South Africa. In its almost 130 years of existence, it has hosted 7 South African Opens and numerous other major tournaments. Royal is home to the biggest annual professional golf event in Africa, the Joburg Open, inaugurated in 2007, and is the preferred venue for the International Final Qualifier (Africa) for the Open Championship.
The Club's two courses are both ranked as major achievers in the awards lists. The East Course is consistently ranked as one of the top 10 courses in the country. Where the West Course, although not as highly rated as the East Course, is the preferred course for many members due to its ease of playability for golfers of all abilities.

Although it was a cold day, we were treated warmhearted. The Pro Shop was quite need and professional, the staff very fiendly, the cards in very clean an neat condition and the coarse was overall in good condition - quite a view leaves on some greens - but overall quite good. The food at the restaurant was excellent. We requested to play anther 9 holes and my son was offered junior rates and I appreciated this. We will return to play the East Course in the future and would like to make use of the Titleist offers in the Pro Shop.
