The Pretoria Country ClubÂs golf course was redesigned and built by the Gary Player Group during the latter part of 2004. The official opening took place on 22 January 2005 with Gary Player teeing the first official ball. The new design is unique due to the fact that all the bunkers on the course are pot bunkers, creating a stern test in bunker play. Furthermore, all existing water hazards were redesigned as well as creating new water hazards which all have a natural feel.
Pretoria Country Club was founded in 1910, and nestles in the scenic beauty of Waterkloof, one of the cityÂs most prestigious suburbs. Over the years the Pretoria Country Club has become a landmark in Pretoria. It is renowned as the quality sports and social venue set in magnificent surroundings.
The back nine, which is noted for its big and beautiful willow trees, is particularly challenging with the 13th (400 metres) and the 15th (380 metres) both somewhat punishing par-fours where water is in play with both the tee shot as well as the approach shot.
