Bryanston Country Club
The club is located in one of Johannesburg’s most vibrant areas, an area with a unique atmosphere
rich with heritage and quality of life.
As one of South Africa's finest golf clubs, the course is graced with undulating grounds and a wide variety of birdlife. Here, the immaculate grooming of the course almost diverts ones attention from the challenges of the 18-hole course. Held in high regard by the best golfers, it maintains a soft spot in the hearts of up-and-coming enthusiasts. The Course was designed by Charles H Alison in 1949 and was constructed by Koos de Beer over the next two years before opening in 1951.
It is a beautiful course with many water obstacles; Bryanston Country Club presents an exciting challenge. Birdies are at a premium and hitting the fairways and the greens is an art to be mastered.

Bryanston - long yet fair
Major features to enjoy for me are the huge number of mature trees which line most fairways. I enjoy the sloping fairways which ensure a challenging approach shot. Greens can be tricky if playing for the first time. The course supports caddies and only has 25 carts so book early if you require one. A good challenge with good clubhouse food and service make this a high- quality destination.
Bryanston Country Club - long and fair
So Bryanston is my home course so expect a slight bias towards the course layout and amenities. I joined the club in 1986 as a junior and loved every minute of practice and playing with my mates until the sun stopped play. The only critizism back then was a general male only, family unfriendly and juniors can be seen but not heard colonial approach to members and visitors - the amount of times I had to pull up my mandatory long socks must equal Donald Trump's number of Tweets.
All that old thinking has gone and now families cavort happily on the clubhouse with pizza and sushi ready at the drop of a hat - expect good service, great atmosphere and a generally happy mood all around.
Golf course - long layout off the Men's tees give a premium on driving well, combine this with Slopes of notes on the greens and you have a great track with perfect kikuya grass fairways.
I would rank Bryanston in my Top 5 to play if you are in Johannesburg - a true benchmark of how a member's club should be managed.
The best of BCC
The Bryanston Country Club or BCC as it is known has had a stunning face lift. Modern facilities compliment a course that is well maintained! Excellent value for money!
