Where2Golf says: 

Woodhill Country Club: Laid out alongside and through the Woodhill Residential Estate, this well-presented, Peter Matkovich design is full of excellent and testing golf holes, as well as some wonderful views from its higher elevations. The anti-clockwise front-nine loop and (mainly) clockwise back-nine loop take you on an expansive journey through the estate, with plenty of undulation and some dramatic holes to be played along the way. Thankfully the many good-sized villas and houses are generally out of range, even from wayward tee-shots. Any cobwebs in your game should be blown away by the long par-3 2nd and par-5 3rd holes. At the fabulous par-3 7th, one of the best bunkerless par-3's in South Africa, you are rewarded with panoramic views onto the wooded hills of Pretoria's southern suburbs. The plunging, downhill 12th, with water to cross in front of the green is another breathtaking par-3. The par-3 16th and par-5 17th holes are played alongside a tree-lined stream, giving a pleasant and natural finishing stretch to the course, and a respite from the ever present, though very stylish estate housing. Both the par-4 9th and 18th holes bring the same two small lakes into play, threatening both your tee and approach shots. With very good maintenance standards on this fast-maturing and rolling estate course, Woodhill is certainly one of the best layouts around Pretoria. Well worth a visit if your staying in South Africa's administrative capital, or nearby Jo'burg.

Did you know?

Keep a lookout for the mongooses who inhabit parts of the course, especially near the rocky outcrops at the par-5 5th - not dangerous but certainly inquisitive. You shouldn't find any cows on the course, but at the par-4 14th you will find a dairy. The building remains on the rightside of the fairway include a silo, cowshed and dairy parlour - part of the dairy farm acquired by the Wolfaardt family in 1927. Woodhill is used as a regular venue for SA Sunshine Tour events, and has hosted the South African PGA Championship (2001).

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene.
