Situated close to Johannesburg, Bryanston Country Club is a very special sporting facility. It boasts one of the most scenic 18-hole courses and is supplemented with tennis, squash and bowls.
'Few people play this course without getting some degree of satisfaction out of it,' claims resident professional Allan Wilson. 'It's all to do with the condition of the course,' says Allan 'It's always absolutely immaculate and that's why it's a pleasure to play it. Even if your game's off, you'll still appreciate how well the place is groomed.' Bryanston is indeed impeccable. And it is, incidentally, also one of the few fashionable Gauteng courses that has in fact not made use of kikuyu on the fairways. Here the cover is cynodon, which is a strain of bent grass. Another prominent feature o the course is the abundance of water hazards and it is possible to 'dunk one in the drink' on all but five of the 18 holes.
It has cynodon bent grass fairways. The bent grass greens are in excellent condition throughout the year. It is a parkland course with water hazards at 13 of the holes. The course is well treed with an average of four bunkers per hole.
