HERE

The successful kick-off of the 2010 Fifa World Cup in Gauteng has reaffirmed our province’s status as the indisputable sporting mecca of South Africa. Since 1993, Gauteng has, with the exception of the Olympics, hosted all of the world’s biggest sporting tournaments: the South African Formula One Grand Prix in 1993, the Rugby World Cup in 1995, the All Africa Games in 1998 and the Cricket World Cup in 2003. These are sporting credentials that speak to a

passion of global standard. When the sun goes down, our stadiums light up to the sounds of Africa’s most revered artists, including the likes of Ismael Lo, Angelique Kidjo and the late Brenda Fassie, all graciously blending with the world’s brightest superstars. Here is where Africa has danced to the sounds of Michael Jackson, UB40 and a myriad other acts who cannot avoid Gauteng as they tour the globe. Gauteng is simply a world of events and sports rolled into an accessible landscape of world-class luxury and exotic experiences. Our passion for the beautiful game is legendary and Gauteng-based football teams form the backbone of South Africa’s national football league. Seven of the league’s 16 teams are based in Gauteng and have earned the province the reputation as the home of champions. For the duration of the

World Cup, a number of fan parks and public viewing areas as well as entertainment precincts have been established where there will be live music, DJs, comedy, poetry and other forms of entertainment. These areas will give football communities from across the world unparalleled access to World Cup big screens and other entertainments, all within a single area. These precincts comprise pubs, restaurants and entertainment venues clustered within particular areas, creating zones where spectators can enjoy a variety of activities, events and showcases — and all this within comfortable walking distance. Enjoy your stay in our beautiful province! Sport, arts, culture and recreation MEC, Nelisiwe Moerane

USING THIS GUIDE Gauteng is a city that can overwhelm the unsuspecting traveller. Relax. This guide is here to help make the most of the short time you’ll be spending in our cool province. It’s organised into two main segments: seeing and doing. We’ve colour-coded everything to make it easier for you to get to where you need to be. We’ve got restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, cultural hotspots and places to venture to while you twiddle your thumbs between the big games. We hope you enjoy your stay. Kinda. RED: For those in the mood to drink like a champion and party YELLOW: For the gastronomes who like fine dining, theatre and other performances BLUE: For those who want to take in Gauteng’s heritage and history, along with some heavy-duty shopping and recreation GREEN: For the people who like getting away from the action and spending some time exploring the reaches of a province ORANGE: Stadiums and their surrounds This is the third edition of six guides to the province of Gauteng. Gauteng isn’t just Joburg. It’s also home to Pretoria and other strange surrounds, like Midrand. You can get your guide in the weekend editions of the Sunday Times, Sunday World and on week days in the Sowetan. Please the back of each guide for contact details and stockists. Cheers — Damon, Ed

STADIUMS loftus ver Behind the boerewors curtain is Loftus Versfeld — the heart of SA rugby, and now a host to the World Cup Loftus is one of South Africa’s oldest and most established stadiums. The site has been used for sports events since 1903, and the first concrete structure, which could accommodate 2 000 spectators, was built in 1923. Since 1948 it has been revamped continuously and has hosted many international showdowns and shindigs. Today, Loftus hosts the Premier Soccer League football clubs Mamelodi Sundowns and Supersport United, as well as rugby union club Blue Bulls, 2010’s Super 14 champions.

some stats • Loftus has a capacity of 49 500 • The most remarkable upgrade was the building of a new roof over the previously uncovered eastern pavilion, which provides shelter from the hot summer sun and cold Highveld winter nights • The stadium also has improved light levels as well as sound quality • The stadium comes with a new, well-lit walkway • Loftus will host six first and second-round matches during the World Cup

PLACES TO EAT TONI’S PIZZA CO Where: 676 Cnr Freight and Chamberlain streets, Rietondale Digits: 012 329 9000/7435 This place keeps getting a good rap. The pizzas actually have a dedicated following (some would call it a cult following) and usually come with a delicious combination of basil and peppadew pestos, goat’s cheese, toasted walnuts, prosciutto and avocado.

First things first: try the prawn rissole. Plan B? The Portuguese-style ribs, basted with lemon juice and olive oil. There’s also the beans with chorizo. Oh, and do your sweettooth a favour and finish off your meal with a traditional pudim de caramelo.

This place is a tradition in Pretoria. The food is inventive, too. The stir-fry vegetables with cashews and honey are always good, so is the Mary Jane (lamb strips marinated in garlic). There’s the other Mary Jane, too, but we won’t go into that here.

LI BEL RESTAURANT Where: Cnr Jorrison and Johnston streets, Sunnyside Digits: 012 343 8277

PAPA’S REAL FOOD Where: Duncan’s Yard, Cnr Duncan and Prospect streets, Hatfield Digits: 012 362 2224

The cuisine changes with the seasons. You must try their polenta cake with edible gold leaf (decadent, we know), and designer burgers with chunky chips.

On the menu you’ll find vegetarian dishes such as caprese salad stack or open ravioli of butternut with feta and rocket. For the meat eaters there’s the lamb potjie (a local stew).

HERR GUNTERS Where: Hatfield Square, Burnett Str, Hatfield Digits: 012 362 6975 Cover charge: Free — 10am-2am. R20 entrance to Hatfield Square on Bafana Bafana and Loftus game days. Traditional German food. A popular drinking spot all year round.

ZANZU NIGHTCLUB AND LOUNGE Where: 1081 Burnett Street, Hatfield Digits: 012 362 4122 Cover charge: Varies — from free (Wednesdays) to R40 (for guys Fridays and Saturdays) If you fancy a hip-hop, house or R&B soundtrack to your post-match euphoria/disappointment, Zanzu is a good call. On the urban end of Hatfield (Dropzone’s on the other end), this local’s favourite has three dance floors, each devoted to a genre. It’s in the student area of Hatfield so entrance is relatively cheap, and you can frequently catch some of South Africa’s best house DJs in action here.

DROPZONE Where: Hatfield Square, Burnett Street, Hatfield Digits: 012 362 6528 Cover charge: Free — open seven days a week from noon during World Cup (R20 entrance to Hatfield Square on Bafana Bafana and Loftus game days). A student favourite. The vibe is great, and, hey, you may even learn to sokkie dance (oompah disco) to the sounds of Afrikaans pop star Kurt Darren.

CO-FI Where: The Fields Centre, Burnett Street, Hatfield Digits: 012 342 1726 Cover charge: Free With its “eatchillate” tagline, Co-fi’s perfect for post-game hangouts. This restaurant-cum-music venue with big-screen TV is open from 7am-2am. Do breakfast here, stay for lunch, take in a game and return for fun.

Where: Hatfield Square, Burnett Street, Hatfield Digits: 012 362 8015 Cover charge: Free — 10am-4am. R20 entrance to Hatfield Square on Bafana Bafana and Loftus game days. Taking its name from South Africa’s best music festival, “Oppikoppi” (on the hill), Oppi Square has robust outdoor tables that will take any amount of bashing should you feel the need to vent if your team loses. Nab a table early for a view of the TV on the square.

Where: 1071 Burnett Street, Hatfield Digits: 012 362 0100 Cover charge: Varies Famously laid back, this comedy, music and drinking venue began just post-apartheid in 1995 and now has seven branches around the country.

BRYANSTON ORGANIC AND NATURAL MARKET Where: Culross Road, Bryanston, Joburg When: Thursday and Saturday, 9am-3pm Web: www.bryanstonorganicmarket.co.za Digits: 011 706 3671 The grand daddy of Gauteng natural food markets, set in the northern reaches of Joburg. The market was established way back in 1976 when these parts comprised wide open small-holdings — not the cookie-cutter townhouse developments that now fill the landscape. With the support of parents and teachers from the Michael Mount Waldorf School, what was originally a farm stall has now swelled into an organic village market. Today it is the spot to find an assortment of eco-clever goods and hand-made items: silk scarves, decorated chicken and goose eggs (check out Amy Bracht’s Floater range, painted in striking monochromatic patterns), salt and pepper shakers and — if you’re looking for something inimitably South African — pick up a “knobkerrie” (walking stick) made by George Skews under the label Duende Designs. After you’ve sapped your energy poring over the stalls, there’re a few eateries and a tea garden where you can replenish your reserves while you listen to live music. GET THESE: 1 Amy Bracht’s hand-decorated chicken and goose eggs are evocatively shaded in black and white strokes. 2 These hand-made salt and pepper pots are designed by local artisan Stoney Steenkamp. Both items are coveted pieces at the Bryanston Organic Natural Market, above

Want a gleaming global label? Go to a Gauteng mall (and beware the sweaty throngs). For the real local stuff, however, visit a rarefied bazaar

life of the arty IRENE MARKET Where: Smuts House Museum, Jan Smuts Ave, Irene When: Every Saturday for the duration of the World Cup between 9am-2pm Web: www.irenemarket.co.za Digits: 012 667 1659 The African equal to Paris’s famed Montmarte. Irene is a popular bohemian hamlet on the banks of the Hennops River and its market is found at the Smuts House Museum, some 40km north of Joburg. This is the perfect place to escape the crowds and fan parks and take in the country air. Ruminate under the trees, wend your way through the lanes, fall in love with a local artist’s work and get frames for your prints, forgotten as they might be among the dust and doilies in your guest loo back home.

AFRICAN CRAFT MARKET Where: Cnr Cradock and Baker avenues, Rosebank When: 8.30pm-6pm every day Web: www.craft.co.za/african.aspx Digits: 011 880 2906 If you’re looking for the genuine traditional article (and you’re not inclined to pull over at a traffic light when you see a line of wooden masks on the sidewalk), you’ll probably breathe a sigh of relief as we acquaint you with this compact craft market, open every day in easy-to-reach Rosebank, a Joburg tourist mecca. Stock up on traditional Zulu dolls from KwaZulu-Natal, stone sculptures from Zimbabwe and West African fertility masks here. Be warned that the stall sellers can, however, be a little pushy, so follow our ninja guide to Joburg fleamarkets and you’ll be fine: as you 5 saunter into stall in manner of cool shopping assassin, hold head high and avoid eye contact until you spot something you like. Ask price only then. If you’re partial to a bargain, this is when you get ready to haggle: most of these African entrepreneurs are open to a bit of the robust heaveho so do try to negotiate yourself a good deal. GET THIS: 3 A strong feature of local craft is the traditional doll created by South African women, like this Ndebele figurine (R800), dressed in a distinctive blanket and apron with a beaded Ndebele design. 4 Hand carvings of animal forms have been etched into this Zambian wooden table (R850). The table is collapsible, making it easy to transport. 5 An evocative mask, carved in Cameroon but painted in a bold South African palette (R450), is the sort of décor item that will stand out in your home. All three items are available at the African Craft Market, above.

uno, due, tre momento The recession has hardly dampened Joburgers’ penchant for markets, which are mushrooming throughout the city. If you’d like to stock up on momentoes during your World Cup stay, we recommend Pace (the Pan African Craft Exhibition). Located at Nelson Mandela Square, cnr Fifth Street and Rivonia Road, Sandton (right next to Fifa’s headquarters), the exhibition features an exhaustive list of design talents from across the country (and other parts of the globe). The space has been transformed into a sort of futuristic African collection of pods, and is open every day from 8.30am to 4.30pm until the end of July. The exhibition is tucked away so call for directions: 011 011 4100. Another ethnic market worth moseying through is the Ekurhuleni Welcome Village (011 999 0111), which offers visitors a taste of the old continent. Find it on cnr Pretoria Road and CR Swart Drive just east of Joburg. Open from 9am to 5pm every day. GET THIS: 6 The Bole chair marks a collaboration between Berlin-based artists Mark Kwani and Tetevie Selassie, and retails for around R3 500 at Pace.

chic soup for the soul JOZI FOOD MARKET Where: Parktown Quarter, cnr Seventh and Third avenues, Parktown North Web: www.jozifoodmarket.co.za When: 8.30am-1.30pm every Saturday Digits: 072 739 8758 The new Jozi Food Market attracts the city’s swank set, who can tell the difference between a designer bag and faux rip-off from 15 paces. If you fit the mould, you’ll feel at home among the haute food and homeware of this market, which springs up in the shaded parking area of the über cool Parktown Quarter every Saturday. You can trawl the designer shops that form part of the Quarter, or take in a decadent quiche at genteel eatery Moemas. This food market is not just about posh poser nosh, however. Make sure you visit the Pulchritude stall, festooned by local design greats like Black Coffee, ironic T-shirt label Love Jozi and stuff by Maria McCloy, who imports hand-made wire jewellery from Lesotho. The idea behind the stall is to make modestly priced, but high-quality chic available to Jozi’s urbanistas every week, and help morph this bazaar from organic food ashram to the city’s holy grail for all sorts of fine market wares.

SOUVENIR IDEA No 6 Die-hard Joburgers like sporting the ironic, well-designed graphic tees by local shirt maestro Brad Kirshenbaum, which reflect the landscape and often eccentric sensibilities of Africa’s economic and cultural powerhouse. This tee (around R290) is one of several styles at the Jozi Food Market’s Pulchritude stall.

DRINK

sportsbars* * The best places to cheat (at pool, darts, etc)

Gauteng’s known for its bars. It’s where the locals go to let it all hang out — entirely. So, if you find the fan parks a little too crowded, or the stadiums too much of a mission, grab a barstool at any of these top six sports bars.

16

THE RADIUM BEERHALL Where: 282 Louis Botha Ave, Orange Grove, Joburg Web: http://theradium.co.za Digits: 011 728 3866 How can we not talk about The Radium Beerhall? It’s the oldest surviving bar (and grillhouse, with great seafood and pasta) in Joburg. It is known for its live jazz performances, but it’s also the best joint in Orange Grove for hanging out and watching the game. The Radium is a tourist hotspot, with walls covered in memorabilia — like photos of pre-war football teams.

WORLD OF SPORTS ACTION BAR Where: 517 Karel Trichardt Avenue, Mountain View, Pretoria Digits: 012 337 0223 It belongs to the World of Sports chain, but it’s got that typical South African flare. It has all the usuals, as well as a big-screen TV, but it’s not obsessed with sport (in case the football’s getting to you). It’s also a good spot to relax and have a drink or 10. PS There are pool tables.

JUNCTION STREET PUB Where: Cnr Van der Walt and Schoeman streets, Pretoria Digits: 083 967 7701 On the outskirts of Pretoria central, this pub is something of a tradition in this part of the Highveld. Sure, it’s right in the heart of the business quarter and shopping centres, but that’s where all the young and edgy crowd are. Some have called it snobbish, but what’s wrong with a little high end? Most importantly: it has a big-screen TV with great sound.

PIRATES SPORTS CLUB Where: 25 Braeside Road, Greenside, Joburg Web: www.piratessportsclub.co.za Digits: 011 646 5025 This place sits so quietly and snugly in Greenside you’d swear it was run by a vicar. Well it’s not. It’s retro, it’s got the low lighting, it’s got the sexy suburbanites, it’s got draught. The best thing about Pirates Sports Club? Just up the road is Parkhurst and the famous Fourth Avenue, with restaurants and other bric-abrac (ie sozzled locals).

BULLDOGS PUB AND GRUB Where: Rosebank Mall, Bath Avenue, Rosebank, Joburg Digits: 011 447 6918 Serves good ambience, burgers, draught, ribs and steak. It’s got the big screen TVs, there’s live music twice a week and it’s bang in the heart of tourist hub Rosebank for your party needs.

THE JOLLY ROGER Where: 10 Fourth Avenue, Parkhurst, Joburg Digits: 011 442 3954 Be prepared. The Jolly Roger has no pretensions. One of the oldest pubs in Joburg, it’s also one of the best. It’s two storeys, with a not-too-shabby deck where you can have a drink with friends while looking out over the Joburg skyline. Plus, there’s half-priced pizza on Sundays. Watch out for the chilli sauce, though, it takes no prisoners. VISIT: http://www.timesurl.at/3c86cc for a selection of cool jazz joints

5 ORLANDO TOWERS Dynamo Street, Cnr Old Potch Road, Orlando Digits: 082 895 1250, 082 895 1279 Spice up Little Saturday by bungee-jumping off these twin towers, which used to supply electricity to the north of Joburg. Now it’s an adventure facility that gives you a bird’s-eye view of the township before you dive 100m to what seems like imminent death. Have fun.

9 OZONE CLUB 2025 Montsane Street, Moletsane Digits: 011 938 1493 Rub shoulders with power dressers and party “kuyoze kuyo vala” — till you are the last person out.

6 WANDIES PLACE 618 Makhalamele Street, Dube Digits: 011 982 2796 When you’ve vanquished the adventure junkie in you, head to this landmark. It’s the godfather of Soweto restaurants, yet it’s a simple house that looks just like any next-door dive. Quincy Jones, Richard Branson, Jesse Jackson and other big wigs have sated their appetites at this popular tavern. The space can be congested, but the food — buffet-style — is mouth-watering.

MONDAY

Rock it, baby. Thirstdays are the new Fridays. Start your sultry Thursday sojourn of Soweto, or Sheila’s Day as we like to call it, among the township’s super-spending stunners at this popular Italian restaurant chain.

1 MOGODU NIGHTS AT CHEATERS Old Potch Road, opposite Maponya Mall 011 938 1381 Most of us despise the Monday blues, but not in Soweto. After a hectic day at work, locals gather at Cheaters to ease the ennui and tuck into a sumptuous meal of “mogodu” (tripe) and pap (dry porridge) — just like your mamma made it. You couldn’t get a more Seffrican evening than a bit of the old bovine stomach lining (hmmm) and toe-tapping local grooves.

TUESDAY When you’re feeling touristy, get a historical sense of the hood by visiting

2 THE HECTOR PIETERSON MUSEUM (011 536 0611), which commemorates the students who died during the June 16 1976 Soweto uprisings. A curator is on hand to give you the hardcore story of all the events leading up to what many consider to be South Africa’s D-Day. After a morning of principled stuff you’ll need to relax and take it all in, so head straight to one of the following nosh spots:

3 SAKHUMZI RESTAURANT (011 536 1379) on famous Vilakazi street — where Archbishop

7 ROBBY’S PLACE 5634 Moroka Street, Zone 5, Pimville Digits: 011 933 7965 Robby’s Place is a pub where you may have your nightcap to Mzansi jazz after a scrumptious Wandies buffet. Laze and listen to your own thoughts or mix with the talkative locals. Nothing beats Robby’s jazzy strains on a chilled Wednesday in Soweto.

Desmond Tutu and former President Nelson Mandela once lived — is laid back and refreshing. There’s plenty room in the venue’s garden and in the double-storey, thatched house. Tucker includes chicken feet, double cheese burgers and hake. There are cocktails, too, and a cigar bar with the finest from Cuba. It’s safe and the crowd is refined, mature and friendly.

4 NAMBITHA RESTAURANT (011 536 1379) is also on Vilakazi. It’s an edgier, young-crowd puller, where anyone who has made it in politics, arts or business is always a table away. The beauty of Joburgers is that we’re hardly star-struck, so everyone gets to enjoy their meal in peace.

10 WALTER SISULU SQUARE Cnr Klipspruit Valley and Union roads, Kliptown Digits: 011 945 3111 Embark on a cultural journey at Walter Sisulu Square in Kliptown. This is where the basis of the South African constitution was born in 1955 (see “The Soweto Hotel”, below). The square is full of symbolism and meaning, as witnessed in the architecture. You are guaranteed to find visual arts, sports and film showcases here. Park off and get a sense of how resilient Soweto goes about its daily life.

Walter Sisulu and former President Nelson Mandela, both wanted men at the time, hid at the nearby Jada hardware store and observed the meeting as it took place. Today the four-star Soweto Hotel stands at this spot and remembers the heroes of yore with a permanent exhibition by SA photography maven Alf Khumalo. The Afro interior is a blend of vintage radiograms, Formica tables and “gogo” (grandmother) tartan throws. Winter warmer jazz on Sunday afternoons.

SOWETO TOURS Web contacts: richard@soweto.co.za, www.soweto.co.za Get a different perspective of this vibrant township and book a 2010 Soweto Full-day Tour through www.soweto.co.za. You’ll travel through Diepkloof where houses cost millions, but the Baragwanath taxi rank will yank you back to third-world Africa. Lose yourself in the movement, the markets, the vuvuzelas, the herbalists and the “sangomas” (spiritual healers) while you get your head shaved by a street barber.

Save your Charlie Chaplin stagger for the Morara Wine Emporium in Mofolo, which offers wine aficionados the best of the best. Pick a few bottles and take them home as a souvenir. A worthy trip if you’re not planning a meander through the Cape winelands.

14 PANYAZA SHISA NYAMA 1736 Tumahole Street, Club 707 Complex, White City Jabavu Digits: 011 938 1491 These are probably the best days in the township, when Soweto’s black middle-class residents migrate from their posh suburbia homes back to the hood. You’ll find every type of “black diamond” (black yuppie) at the township’s car washes, restaurants and, at the most popular haunt of all, Panyaza — the Sunday hotspot for a “shisa nyama” (barbeque). This is where the true subculture of Soweto’s middle class emerges — here you are, inescapably, what you wear and drive, as well as the company you keep. An infectious street chilling session where people play music from their cars, get lost in light-hearted conversation and hustle their way into the networking “lekgotlas” (gatherings) that keep Soweto ticking.

A well-researched (highly entertaining, somewhat insightful*) guide to the province’s best golf courses *

20

TREE OF KIND Planes, oaks, elms, maples, firs and cypresses abound, which give many local courses the air of a European or American parkland.

Based on the facts, expert opinions and musings of an avid swinger

Golfers playing on the Highveld will quickly discover the region’s major attraction: thin, windless air that lets your ball fly a mile. And in the sunny June-July winter months, frost burns the kikuyu fairways to a crisp, allowing for lots of roll. The combination of high altitude and tight lies makes for plenty of flattering drives, provided you keep the blasted thing straight off the tee. Designers of golf courses in the Joburg-Pretoria area have had a hundred years to work out how best to counter the grip-it-and-rip-it brigade. Older courses are lined with every variety of exotic tree. The beauty of an oldfashioned layout is that green keepers do not have to grow the rough to penal heights; the trees do a more than good enough job of adding shots to the scorecard. Most courses in Gauteng store what they have pumped from their own boreholes into dams. These hazards, along with feeder streams, will be dotted all over the show, offering many opportunities for selfinflicted agony. Established courses on the

Highveld are generally all suburban in nature: easily accessible and self-contained, with excellent clubhouse, proshop and practise facilities. Apart from weekend competition days, which are often reserved for members, all the courses mentioned welcome visitors. Dress codes are pretty much of international standard. The Gauteng province has in recent years, along with other major metropolitan areas in the world, attracted a glut of gated golf estates. Green fees may be a touch richer than at older clubs, but the quality of the goods is without peer. Such courses attract far less traffic than their counterparts, so a tee time can generally be obtained without too much trouble. In the modern style, newer courses generally hew a lot more closely to the indigenous environment, so you can expect far fewer giant trees and more of the thorn, scrub, brush and natural savannah grasses that characterise the undeveloped reaches of the Highveld. Many of the new-style greens have taken their cue from what appears to be the new Jack Nicklaus design standard.

The clubhouse. A place where lovers of golf come to talk about the finer points of the game (i.e. drink)

Collared shirts, tailored shorts or slacks, white socks and soft-spike shoes are a requirement

THE WANDERERS GOLF CLUB

Rudd Road, Illovo, Joburg Green fee: Early-morning special rate R157; other times on weekdays R207; weekends R337 Digits: 011 447 3311; www.wanderersgolfclub.com GPS: S 26 08 00 | E 28 03 09 A grand old lady, bordering the famous cr stadium, that fools you into thinking it’s w open and ripe for the taking. The course appears to have been burrowed through a forest, and only the most foolhardy will d more than plot a careful trail. Wanderers more hilly than you think, and several of longer holes are extremely daunting, with blind rises where you least expect them.

ROYAL JOHANNESBURG & KENSINGTON GOLF CLUB Hellish hills and dales on the putting surfaces that make precise approach shots a necessity if you want to avoid a dreaded three-putt.

GOOD JOKE TO DISTRACT A man meets a prostitute in a bar. She says, “This OPPONENT is your lucky night. Why don’t we play a game. I will do anything you want for R600, so long as you can say it in three words.” The man replies, “What the hell, why not?” He pulls out his wallet and, one at a time, lays three two hundred rand notes on the counter and says slowly, “Paint ... my ... house.”

A notable nine — the Highveld’s top courses

Fairway Avenue, Linksfield North, Joburg Green fee: Weekdays R290; weekends R390 Digits: 011 640 3021 GPS: S 26 09 35 | E 28 08 28 Choose your poison: the championship-quality east course, or the “easier” west. Both layouts form part of a vast, green belt that includes the derelict Huddle Park municipal facility, which once included three serviceable tracks. The eastern course at Royal can be a mind-bender for the shorter hitter — virtually every low-stroking hole can be reasonably assumed by the hacker to play as a par five. For all that, it is majestic. The dominant tree is the bluegum, shading immaculate fairways. The west course is less of a test, but contains all the hallmarks of its neighbouring big brother.

Several par fours are reachable with a good drive, but heaven help you if you miss. A concrete sloot (gulley) runs the entire length of the course, out-of-bounds lines either side of the fairways, and there are enough willows — the club’s trademark — to make you weep. Beware the devillish stroke-one fourth hole: a few metres on the wrong side of the big tree that guards the dogleg will see a certain bogey, or worse.

CROWN MINES GOLF CLUB Booysens Reserve Road, Ormonde, Joburg Green fee: Weekdays R100; weekends R185 Digits: 011 496 1505; www.crownminesgolfclub.com GPS: S 26 14 01 | E 27 59 31 Among the first courses designed by Gary Player, Crown Mines was once one of Joburg’s premier golfing destinations. In the shadow of Soccer City, it has struggled to keep up with its wealthier neighbours in the north of town. Yet, even though the course is slightly worn around the edges, it remains a classic. It lies in the heart of the old mining belt, on land that has yet to suffer the full force of development. As such it retains a flavour of times past, a whiff of gold dust. Neglected by many locals, it’s well worth a visit.

CENTURION COUNTRY CLUB

Centurion Drive, Centurion Residential Estate, John Vorster Avenue, Centurion Green fee: R300, plus halfway house voucher of R60 Digits: 012 665 0279 Neighbouring Irene, the Centurion Country Club is regarded as one of the most welldesigned courses in Gauteng. It’s known for its greens surrounded by difficult stretches of water. It’s got a great pro shop, a fourhole mashie course, tennis and squash courts. Over the World Cup it will offer a special package for morning games and TV football in the afternoons

GLENDOWER GOLF CLUB 20 Marais Road, Edenvale, Joburg Green fee: Weekday mornings R400; weekday afternoons R450; weekends R500 Digits: 011 453 1013; www.glendower.co.za GPS: S 26 09 20 | E 28 08 22 Recognised countrywide as a fine test that has played host to many professional tournaments. There is a lot of water in play, and the toughest ask starts right after you’ve had your pie and chips at the halfway house. It may be one of the more mature layouts around, but somehow a round at Glendower will always be memorable — if only as a reminder of your own frailties.

Woodhill is ostensibly an “estate” of course, but the houses (mansions, rather, for this is a seriously moneyed part of the province) remain politely aloof from the action on the fairways. Thorn trees abound, interspersed with wiry clumps of native shrubbery that you’d do well to steer away from. Woodhill has been selected for many professional championships, and it shows.

Designer Jack Nicklaus has not imposed himself on the natural terrain, so expect plenty of natural, yet unexpected, undulations. The chief obstacle in your way of a good score will be the bunkers, and both signal the direction in which you should hit and trap the overly ambitious shot. Precise wedges and nerveless putting will be the main weapons to wield if you hope to post a decent score.

The course has its detractors, who cannot see beyond the folly of sculpting “dunes” out of a former quarry. Given that anachronism, though, the course is a delight, and skirts a bog that is host to some wonderful bird life. What might have been a runof-the-mill track with a big water hazard is now an eccentric vision of what someone, somewhere might have imagined a course might look if it was in county Cork, not workaday Benoni.
