Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club (East)
Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club was built in 1933 and granted its Royal prefix by King George V. It has two long courses and at first glance is an intimidating prospect for most visitors, until you remember that at Johannesburgâ€™s high altitude the ball travels 10% further. The courses have a tree-lined parkland layout with gentle undulations rather than abrupt slopes.
The East course is a true championship course having hosted seven South African Opens as well as the second British Commonweath Tournament. The 10th and 11th holes are reputed to be the longest back-to-back par fours in the world. The course has undergone many improvements including a project undertaken to control erosion and reinforce the banks of the water course which runs through the property.
