The Venue “Randpark Club strives to be the premier golfing destination in Gauteng.”
Bushwillow is the new name for Randpark’s Windsor Park course In celebration of the course’s 70th anniversary it received a well deserved birthday present in the form of a face-lift in April 2012 to the value of R2.5 million. The result is a stunning new 18-hole, Par 72 lay-out. Even though it was safe to say that the leafy, old “Windsor” course was a favoured haven of green away from the hustle and bustle of the city the Club felt there was room for improvement and during the last six months a splendid transformation has taken place. The nines have been switched, re-routed and three completely new holes created. Several others were altered for the better with new greens and bunkers. A number of artificial ponds were also removed and the course given a general “spruce up” by Golf Data’s senior course designer, Sean Quinn. In addition, it has been changed from a Par 70 with two Par 5s, to a Par 72 with four Par 5s. To sum it all up, Bushwillow is an exceptional, superbly manicured golf course and with the many trees lining the fairways it surely is one of Gauteng’s prettiest lay-outs too. The Randpark course - which hosted the 1995 and 2000 SA Open, has been re-named Firethorn The "second" course, the Firethorn course was designed by Sid Brews. The course has matured over the years and has undergone a number of improvements to maintain its contemporary appeal. An extensive renovation and modernization project commenced on the 01 June 2014. The "new" Firethorn designed by Course Architect Sean Quinn of Golf Data opens early 2015, resulting in the championship tees now measuring a total of 7050 metres (one of the longest golf courses in South Africa), with a Par of 72.
