George Golf Club
George Golf Club has always been regarded as one of the country’s great layouts. The course was designed by Dr Charles Molteno Murray, who also had a hand in the designs of Royal Cape and Clovelly Golf Clubs. The current layout was officially opened in 1934, but it was almost 30 years earlier, in 1906, when George Golf Club was formed by enthusiastic golfers of the time who were playing the game at various smaller courses located on farms in the area.
This is one of those courses that can be played again and again, and it grudgingly gives up its secrets to scoring well. No true golfer could ever tire of its charms or the local hospitality, and no matter how well or poorly the player might do, they will surely always want to come back for more.
Long-hitters will feel that they can overpower the layout, because by modern standards it is certainly not long – but the tree-lined fairways with some tight landing areas, and a few good pin positions will demand respect from the most accomplished players. Throw in some wind and the changes in elevation and George Golf Club will keep even the best players guessing. Best of all, this is a playable course that is fun to take on in any conditions.
