Situated adjacent to the vaal river, a mere 45 minute drive from bustling johannesburg, it’s essentially a world apart from the industrialized hub of vereeniging.

A Golf Club steeped in history, from its early Voortrekker days, the discovery of coal in the area in 1878, to the amazing entrepreneurial flair of Sammy Marks who put Vereeniging on the map. This land was a wilderness of sandy waste, transformed by the two sports minded sons of Sammy, Louis and Teddy Marks, who conceived the idea of establishing a top quality golf course near the town of Vereeniging on land which they owned.

The Reef mining magnets and their rich and famous friends, would travel by train from Johannesburg to Maccauvlei station, where they would disembark to enjoy 5-star hospitality at the club’s Dormy House and play the course at their leisure.

Today, Maccauvlei ranks in the top 50 courses in the country (38th), and is a blend of parkland splendour and links characteristics, its impressive history, and aristocratic pedigree, are still very evident, and its sheer quality will handsomely repay every expectation the golfer might have. Anyone who does not make the short journey to play the course, is missing out on a wonderful golfing experience – it is worth more than a visit.
