The World Atlas of Golf, which lists the great courses and how they are played, features just two South African clubs on its hallowed pages. One is Durban Country Club and the other is Royal Johannesburg, which was established more than 100 years ago.

It was initially known only as Johannesburg Golf Club.

The club was granted the ‘Royal’ prefix by King George V in 1931, two years before a second 18-hole course, now the more famous East layout, was built alongside the existing West course.
