    Wanderers Golf Club

    • Northlands, Johannesburg
    • Johannesburg, Gauteng 2116 South Africa

    Wanderers Golf Club not only has a wonderfully warm club spirit, but a challenging golf course that is rated one of the best in Gauteng.

    The Wanderers is not a brutal championship layout, but one that favours the shot makers. The holes demand finesse and accuracy rather than power, especially the ability to shape tee shots through narrow avenues of trees. There was always low scoring at the PGA, and the list of champions was a classy one. All the great South Africans of recent decades, with the notable exception of Nick Price, won titles there.

    Situated in a prime locale, it is one of the most central courses in Gauteng, and home to an exceedingly friendly and social membership. Its popularity is evident in the fact that there are 1 200 very passionate members. The excellent club spirit is obvious in the number of special club competitions that take pride of place on a busy calendar, and the many Wanderers groups you will find touring other parts of the country.

    The par 71 Wanderers layout has an unusual routing, in that it has three par-3s on the back nine, just one on the front. The front nine, which opens with a hole that underwent a major change in the renovation process, being lengthened from a long par 4 into a 516-metre par 5, has seven par 4s. There are two strong par 4s on each nine where you need to bring out the driver. The 440m fifth, with a wider fairway than most, is currently being toughened with the addition of another fairway bunker. The seventh hole, at 441m, has changed slightly with the bunker on the right side of the fairway being removed and a dam replacing it, making this hole worthy of being Stroke 1 and a classic dogleg par four.

    If the pratice green is good, the practice field needs some ameliorations.

    The greens were good but the fairways obviously because of the weather were rather patchy our caddies were brilliant!

    It was excellent – loved the course some good challenges but very playable. Loved the clubhouse and Bar and overall experience was great. I shot 4 better than my handicap too

    Course is fantastic. Very well kept and some lovely holes.

    Club house facilities are little shoddy for club with such history and reputation.

    The course and the guest facilities were all great, however I happened onto the staff loo and can't believe you expect any human being to actually make use of it. You should take better care of your staff, especially when it comes to the basics!
