Houghton Golf Club is one of South Africa's premier golfing venues and is one of only 5 Jack Nicklaus designed signature courses in South Africa. The course is steeped in tradition and has been host to the SA Open on no less than 8 occasions. Conveniently situated in the leafy suburbs of Johannesburg, the course is set on undulating land with the beauty of natural flowers, trees and birdlife. It is not brutally long, so golfers will need to think carefully about their club choice to avoid the well positioned bunkers, ponds and dams. To highlight a couple of memorabe holes, the par 5, 15th requires an accurate drive and then your 2nd and 3rd downhill to a beautifully set green with water on the front and right. The 17th is a shortish par 4 with magnificent views from the tee and lots of sand to avoid. If you drive accurately and avoid the bunkers you can score well but find the bunkers and you'll be struggling for a par. When you're finished playing the course make sure that you leave some time to enjoy the magnificent clubhouse. Houghton has one of the nicest and most luxurious clubhouses in South Africa with a great bar, restaurant and a fully stocked pro shop.
