  • Course is in very good condition. Well maintained. Sunday afternoon field can be better managed due to slow play. Will recommend to play.  more »
  • I recently played a round of golf at Observatory Golf Club, the oldest golf club in Jo’burg. When I say the round was up and down I am not referring to my golf (which was refreshingly good :) ) The co...  more »

  • One of my favourite courses. Narrow and challenging. This course is about playing smart. The greens are generally in good condition. Lightning fast in winter. Good value for money. The food is average, and speed of play can be frustrating. Management of tee off times by the starters is generally not great and one often tees off 15min later than scheduled.
  • Better course than I anticipated. The fairways and green as good as any in Gauteng. Areas between green to tees could do with work though and some drainage issues on some fairways. Still I was pleasantly surprised with the experience. 3.5 stars. However, staff in canteen were very unfriendly and rather rude though and detracted from an otherwise great experience. If not for them, I may have given a 4-star rating to the overall experience.
  • Great golf course .. quite tight and narrow but good fun ... make sure your voice is clear because you will be shouting FORE quite a bit
  • Golf course with a rich history. Very enjoyable to play
  • Relaxing Good place to take your mind off things even if you not good at golf
