Dainfern’s 72 par 18 hole golf course is regarded as one of South Africa’s top 100 courses. Designed by golfing legend, Gary Player, who has designed over 300 courses worldwide.The course tests the skills of proficient golfers, with play crossing the Jukskei River six times. The course has some of the most scenic yet challenging holes in the country and is one of South Africa’s most exciting golf venues. It was the second golf estate to be launched in South Africa and the first in Gauteng.Dainfern continually strives to maintain its championship profile by putting emphasis on the visual aspect of the course as well as the playability of the course. We have done this by the planting of trees, building new cart paths and new bunkering to toughen up certain holes.
A focal point of the estate is the Juskei River, which flows through the layout with the elavated tee positions that provide magnificent views of the surrounding High-veld terrain. The golf course is one of Gauteng's 'must-play' layouts and offers a green lung in the midst of the Johannesburg conurbation.
