Krugersdorp is a surprisingly long course, which perhaps explains why the club has produced so many exceptional golfers the last 75 years. Numerous internationals, and a SA Open champion in Arthur Stewart. It’s 6839 from yellow tees, and 6477 from white. There is no hole where you can relax, and the easiest is the 488m second, a dogleg right par 5 fronted by a large water hazard. Most greens are on the narrow side and strongly protected by hazards. Tall trees framing fairways provide additional defence off the tee, so the loss of about 40 mature trees this past summer due to the incessant rainfall was a blow to the club. The overall conditioning is exceptional; greens smooth and quick, tees superbly cut and presented, bunkers consistent, and fairways well grassed and tight. Krugersdorp have different 19th holes for summer and winter. Summer sees everyone relaxing in the courtyard lapa which is a distinctive feature of an attractive clubhouse, while winter is by the fire in the upstairs bar and lounge.
