he multi-award-win­ning Rand­park Golf Club and Fair­way Ho­tel, Spa & Golf Re­sort in­vite you to ex­pe­ri­ence the good life – on and off the course.They of­fer ex­ten­sive fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices with a re­sort feel in the heart of Johannesburg.This ur­ban golf des­ti­na­tion is on par with ex­cel­lence, of­fer­ing play and stay pack­ages to busi­ness trav­ellers, golf groups and leisure guests.

Rand­park has two uniquely dif­fer­ent golf cour­ses, the Firethorn and Bush­wil­low, both ren­o­vated to high stan­dards in re­cent years by Golf Data un­der the watch­ful eye of course de­signer Sean Quinn. The R23-mil­lion up­grade to the cham­pi­onship Firethorn lay­out was com­pleted ear­lier this year. There are seven new holes, an en­tirely new rout­ing from the fifth to the eighth holes,

Tand 18 new greens com­plexes. The Jukskei River run­ning through the course has been cleaned up, alien veg­e­ta­tion be­ing re­moved to present the Firethorn course as an eco-friendly ‘green lung.’

The Bush­wil­low course is a park­land de­sign, a haven of tran­quil­ity away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city. With many trees lin­ing the fair­ways, it is one of Gaut­eng’s most at­trac­tive lay­outs. Bush­wil­low also presents a unique chal­lenge known as “The Gaunt­let.” This con­sists of the par-3 15th, par-4 16th and 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.

In ad­di­tion, Rand­park has a twotiered driv­ing range, com­ple­mented by The Brew­ery which serves craft beer and gourmet burgers.The club­house it­self has state-of-the-art con­fer­ence and func­tion fa­cil­i­ties.There is fine din­ing and lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion at the Fair­way Ho­tel, a sought af­ter golf des­ti­na­tion in Gaut­eng.

The Fair­way Ho­tel over­looks the Firethorn course and is si­t­u­ated right of the first tee.This mod­ern city ho­tel is a des­ti­na­tion for golf tour­na­ments,
