Witbank Golf Club Looking Good at 108 Years

The 108 year old Witbank Golf Club, in defiance of urban creep is looking as good as ever and in 2015 has adopted a mission statement which reads quite simply to ‘provide an enjoyable golf experience to member’s guests and competitors’.

Golf DayThis is made possible with 18 recently rebuilt greens that are now bedded in and compare with the best the province have to offer, set in a well wooded course, home to over 40 species of birds, a resident merecat on the 11th, several water features, one being the short 8th which is largely regarded as the signature hole of the course.

A unique feature of the course is undulating fairways on holes 11 and 12 caused when surface ground subsided after being undermined in the early part of the 20th century, this indelibly stamping the club as being part of the Mpumalanga Coalfields history.

This manicured 18 hole golf course, the venue of many Pro Am tournaments over the years has played host to almost all of South Africa’s top professionals including Gary Player and Ernie Els, is supported by a Pro shop that is stocked with golf accessories and managed by resident professional golfer Leon Bothma, well able to tweak the swing and offer golf lessons at reasonable prices.

In addition the stately clubhouse offers all modern amenities including a modern conference centre with an accommodation capacity of 120, but also ideal for smaller more intimate groups.

The pleasant bar facility leading out to a patio where enjoying sundowners will take in the wonderful views of the 9th, 10th and 18th fairways. The half-way house restaurant is legendary for good quality meals at reasonable prices.

Good quality golf carts are available for hire on a course par rated at 71, featuring T boxes for men, ladies and senior golfers on some holes. Open 7days per week with secure parking available controlled by a manned boom gate and additional security measures have been introduced on the course to ensure golfer safety.
For community based organisations such as schools, churches and charities wishing to raise funds, the Witbank Golf Course is the ideal venue and management would be happy to discuss and advise on formats to suit the fund raiser.

There are a host of exciting promotional opportunities for the commercial, industrial and mining sectors to advertise their products and services on the golf course or simply to entertain their customers.

The club offers club competitions on Wednesdays, Friday afternoons, Saturdays and some Sundays supported by wonderful sponsors who are content to promote their businesses to golfers, many of whom are successful captains of industry and major decision makers.

Members are the lifeblood of any golf course and residents of Witbank and surrounds are urged to take advantage of recently reduced membership and playing fees by contacting the club for a membership category that will suit needs.

For any enquiries please contact Ms Melinda van Stryp on Tel 013 656 5109 or on email, visit our website  and ‘like’our Facebook page.
