The two 18 hole layouts at"Royal" are among the best courses in Johannesburg. Royal was built in 1933 and the championship East layout has been frequent host to the South African Open. They are both long courses and at first glance an intimidating prospect for most visitors until you remember that at Johannesburg's high altitude the ball travels 10% further. The courses have a tree lined parkland layout with gentle undulations rather than abrupt slopes.

Location: Fairway Avenue, Linksfield North. Getting there: Turn off the N3 at the Linksfield turn-off and then turn right. Proceed past the major set of traffic lights. You have to pass the Engen garage on the right. After 60 metres, turn right and then follow the signboards off Louis Botha Avenue into 10th Street. At the end of 10th Street you turn right into Council Street. At the traffic lights you turn left. After 1.5 kilometres you turn left again and follow the signboards.

Unique selling points:
- Easy access
- Granted its Royal prefix by King George V in 1931
- Hotel and Airport shuttle service available
- Motorised golf cart
- The East course is a true championship course having hosted 7 South African Opens as well as the second British Commonweath Tournament
