The Bryanston Coun­try Club cel­e­brates its 70th an­niver­sary in 2018.With its won­der­ful tra­di­tions and her­itage, prime lo­ca­tion and mag­nif­i­cent fa­cil­i­ties it is proud to be recog­nised as one of the most suc­cess­ful and pro­gres­sive clubs in South Africa.

The club’s styling cap­tures the essence of the re­laxed, yet el­e­gant fam­ily life­style.

The club’s lead­ers have de­vel­oped a suc­cess­ful strat­egy that has fo­cused on a holis­tic life­style for its mem­bers. In­ter­na­tional trends have shown that a club will strug­gle to sur­vive in our mod­ern world on tra­di­tional golf alone – you need to at­tract dif­fer­ent de­mo­graph­ics and of­fer more than just golf.The club’s tagline – “It’s a life­style” – en­com­passes what the club is aim­ing for.

The club is blessed with a beau­ti­ful park­land set­ting, in the heart of Africa’s eco­nomic hub, of­fer­ing a mod­ern and at­trac­tive club­house which in­cludes restau­rants with ex­cel­lent cui­sine, func­tion venues, meet­ing rooms, a swim­ming pool, bowl­ing greens, squash and ten­nis courts. Bryanston of­fers many so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties for mem­bers and their guests.

The 18-hole clas­sic park­land course is one of Gaut­eng’s premier and most pop­u­lar cham­pi­onship lay­outs – host­ing 45 000 golfers per an­num.The fo­cus on im­proved con­di­tion­ing and the em­pha­sis on the en­vi­ron­ment through bet­ter turf and water man­age­ment, bio­di­ver­sity plan­ning and mon­i­tor­ing has been suc­cess­ful. In 2017 the club won both the CMASA Green Award and the John Col­lier Award for Good Gov­er­nance and En­vi­ron­men­tal Com­pli­ance. Re­view­ers were im­pressed by Bryanston’s bal­anced ap­proach to sus­tain­abil­ity.

In tough eco­nomic con­di­tions Bryanston’s per­for­mance has bucked trends and with over 3 000 mem­bers the club has its big­gest mem­ber­ship ever! The av­er­age mem­ber age has dropped to a healthy 48 years and new fam­i­lies are en­joy­ing the re­laxed and vi­brant at­mos­phere at the club. Pro­vid­ing sports de­vel­op­ment pro­grammes for ju­niors in all sports of­fered will en­sure the fu­ture growth and long term sus­tain­abil­ity of both the club and the var­i­ous sports.

The club was proud to host a suc­cess­ful SA In­ter­provin­cial in 2017 and GolfRSA CEO Grant Hep­burn summed it up best when he wrote: “Con­grat­u­la­tions on cre­at­ing a club that oozes suc­cess and hospi­tal­ity and goes out of its way to make vis­i­tors feel wel­come. Bryanston is a mi­cro­cosm of what GolfRSA should be striv­ing for. It en­cour­ages fam­ily par­tic­i­pa­tion, is for­ward think­ing, en­gages with its cus­tomer base and thinks out of the box, yet doesn’t for­get the tra­di­tions and values of the great game of golf.”
