South Downs Country Club makes the most of Johannesburg’s lovely southern suburbs by being easily reachable and practical. Despite its great location right in the middle of Jo-burg (South Africa’s busiest commercial epicentre), it is a true escape from the city. The majority of people first referred to it as Virginia Park Golf Club, even though South Downs had long been the official name. The Bloubos Spruit, which runs through the course, is essential in producing a variety of water hazards to challenge the pros and establish the fundamentals of golf for beginners. This region is a miniature treasure trove of South African fauna and flora because of the variety of bird life and plants that this natural water feature attracts.
From Tuesday to Sunday, the course is open, and guests are always welcome. To avoid disappointment, it is strongly advised that you reserve your hotel or other lodgings in Johannesburg as well as your tee times in advance. South Downs is a wonderful option for those looking to use it for corporate golf outings and team-building exercises because of its close proximity to Johannesburg’s CBD.
For added convenience, the club has a pro shop, where you can rent golf carts and clubs. The club’s function space, which can hold up to 120 people, is ideal for events and gatherings.
