The old gold mining town grew up on dynamite, which was used to blast the Witwatersrand Hills, where around 40% of the World’s Gold was mined.

We can therefore thank the Modderfontein Dynamite Factory, the world’s largest Dynamite Company – for inaugurating Modderfontein Golf Club back in 1935 and commissioned Arthur Tomsett to design the course and opened by Bobby Locke.

In 1990, the course was redesigned by Hugh Baiocchi with 7 dams and 12 meandering streams to ensure enough water supplies year round.

Modderfontein Golf Course is a challenging course with 12 holes where water is in play – whether directly in front of the Greens or parallel to the fairways. Each of the 18 holes has it’s own unique feature. For a memorable game of golf book now! 011 608-2033 or mail us on
