The Four Star Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club is perched on the banks of the Vaal River. A 45-minute drive from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg will see you arrive in the sleepy town of Vereeniging, and this stunning venue offers both the business and leisure traveller a variety of special experiences.
Indigenous trees frame some of the perfectly manicured kikuyu fairways and help the player visualize shape of shot from the tee in order to navigate his or her way around the ten excellent par fours on offer at Riviera on Vaal. The course has a unique ‘African Bush’ feel to it and there is no hidden trouble to be found – unless you are really wild! Straight hitting will be rewarded with the opportunity to hit medium to short irons into small, well protected, fast and undulating USGA Spec Bentgrass greens, which require intelligent reading skills, good judgement of pace, and a solid putting stroke. Depending on the skill of the golfer, the four par fives can be reached in two solid blows, but a more cautious three-shot route could be the better option. Four of the prettiest par threes any golfer could imagine need accuracy and full concentration to hit the target otherwise the players’ short game and bunker play will come under close examination – that is assuming you have missed the water which comes into play on three of them!
Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club is the perfect wedding venue with versatile packages and multi-facetted facilities. A charming riverside gazebo and beautiful surroundings all combine to provide the wedding of your dreams.
The clubhouse at this superb venue boasts excellent bar, restaurant and conference facilities. These are serviced by a highly efficient, friendly staff who create the perfect atmosphere in which to enjoy a long, cold sundowner on the spacious patio that provides grandstand views of this great golf and holiday paradise!
