Glendower Golf Club is regarded as one of the top 10 golf courses in South Africa, offering a five-star golfing experience and the club has a proud history that goes all the way back to 1935.
Glendower has held many of the country’s flagship tournaments and in 1939 the club played host to its first major tournament, The Transvaal Open Championship.
In 1973 the club was proclaimed a nature reserve to preserve the excellent birdlife found on and around the course. During the 1980s, a major refurbishment saw the reshaping of all the greens, the addition of new tee positions, water features and hazards, making this course one of the most challenging and picturesque in South Africa.
There's a lot of water involved in this course with water hazards on 11 of the 18 holes. It also boasts lovely kikuyu fairways with 64 bunkers, 27 on the front nine and 37 on the back nine. This championship course has also hosted many of South Africa’s flagship tournaments, including the South African Open.
