Centurion have switched back to the original Matkovich routing of their course, after a 3-year experiment in which the two finishing holes on each nine were transposed. The par-3 eighth and short par-4 ninth built in the middle of the large dam fronting the clubhouse became Nos 17 and 18 during this time. Now the club have reverted to the old 18th, a dangerous risk-reward 418m par 4 where the tee shot carries a corner of the dam, with water then flanking the entire left side of the hole from tee to green. Centurion has several strong par 4s, principally the 465m second which must be one of the few Stroke 1 holes in South Africa which hasn’t a single bunker, or even a water hazard near the green (another one is the 8th hole at Humewood). Sheer length makes this a formidable hole for the club golfer. The fairway rises slightly from the tee before executing a soft right turn around trees towards a 3-tier green.
