The country club has a great location and the change rooms are good. Had a couples therapy for 90mins but expected a lot more. Felt pretty ordinary and not one of the best experiences to date

Went there for the Nedbank Golf Challenge, the club staff are super friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. The TV screens mounted in the clubhouse allows you to watch the golf from air-conditioned clubhouse
