Randpark Club - Bushwillow Course
In celebration of the course’s 70th anniversary Bushwillow Course at Randpark Club received a well deserved birthday present in the form of a face-lift in April 2012 to the value of R2.5 million. The result is a stunning new 18-hole, Par 72 lay-out. Even though it was safe to say that the leafy, old “Windsor” course was a favoured haven of green away from the hustle and bustle of the city the Club felt there was room for improvement and during the last six months a splendid transformation has taken place.
The nines have been switched, re-routed and three completely new holes created. Several others were altered for the better with new greens and bunkers. A number of artificial ponds were also removed and the course given a general “spruce up” by Golf Data’s senior course designer, Sean Quinn.
In addition, Bushwillow Course has been changed from a Par 70 with two Par 5s, to a Par 72 with four Par 5s. To sum it all up, Bushwillow is an exceptional, superbly manicured golf course and with the many trees lining the fairways it surely is one of Gauteng’s prettiest lay-outs too.

Bushwillow - A lovely parklands course!
Bushwillow is a lovely parklands par 70 course with two Par 5s, to a Par 72 with four Par 5s. To sum it all up, Bushwillow is an exceptional, superbly manicured golf course and with the many trees lining the fairways it surely is one of Gauteng's prettiest lay-outs too.
Last but not least Bushwillow presents an interesting feature; you have no doubt heard of "Amen Corner" and "The Bear Trap", well, Bushwillow now presents a unique challenge known as "The Gauntlet". This consists of three consecutive holes, the Par 3, 15th, the Par 4,16th and the Par 5,17th. To conquer "The Gauntlet" a score of 10 Individual Stableford points is required, a tough challenge indeed but one which can make or break a round and create a talking point at the ever popular 19th hole, Randpark Club's Terrace Bar.
