Description

Modderfontein Golf Course consistently rates in the top 60 of South African golf courses. Measuring the length of 6651 meters the par of the course is 72. The layout is on a parkland setting and has firm greens with tree lined fairways. These elements combined with challenging strategic bunkering provide an excellent test of golf even for the most accomplished golfer.Modderfontein Golf Course hosts numerous important amateur tournaments which sees over 40 000 rounds per year.We are hidden away in the centre of Gauteng, picturesque, harmonious and the ultimate golf hideaway.The outpost of Modderfontein which dates back to 1894 – was the forefather of Modern day Johannesburg. The old gold mining town grew up on dynamite, which was used to blast the Witwatersrand Hills, where around 40% of the World’s Gold was mined. We can therefore thank the Modderfontein Dynamite Factory, the world’s largest Dynamite Company – for inaugurating Modderfontein Golf Club back in 1935 and commissioned Arthur Tomsett to design the course and opened by Bobby Locke. In 1990, the course was redesigned by Hugh Baiocchi with 7 dams and 12 meandering streams to ensure enough water supplies year round.
