An absolute gem of a course, Kyalami Country Club is situated just north of Johannesburg near Kyalami Race Track, once home to the South African Formula One Grand Prix. The surrounding area is inhabited by smallholdings, horse riding schools, country inns, restaurants and shops displaying all kinds of South African goods such as traditional furnishings, fabrics, curios and art.
At a length of 6633 metres, Kyalami offers a strong but fair challenge to golfers of all levels. The four par fives are reachable in two solid blows, but the safer three shot route can still provide a birdie or a safe par. Accuracy and shape of shot are vital from the tee on the par fours and straight hitting will be rewarded by leaving medium to short iron approach shots into the greens on this scenic, meandering layout. Miss the target on any of the picturesque par threes and your short game and bunker play will be thoroughly examined! The USGA Spec Bentgrass greens are well guarded, quick and undulating with intelligent reading skills and a smooth putting stroke being required on these perfectly manicured surfaces.
Ponds, dams and irrigation lakes surrounded by willow, indigenous trees, flowering shrubs and a huge, abundant variety of colourful birdlife complete the prettiest of pictures and make your walk around this fine golf course an extremely pleasing visual experience against a stunning African backdrop.
The cosy, amiable clubhouse atmosphere created by the friendly staff and members make Kyalami the ideal venue for a great days’ golf with its outstanding bar, restaurant and conference facilities offering exceptional quality and value.
