Houghton Golf Club is one of South Africa’s premier golfing venues. The course has a proud history as a championship facility having hosted no fewer than eight SA Open events, the first of which took place in 1951. The course too has been the chosen venue for the prestigious Alfred Dunhill Championship.
Houghton’s underlying qualities as a test of golf have not been drastically changed with the passing of the years, though, to stay up-to-date of developments in the game the decision was taken to appoint the Jack Nicklaus design group as the course architects for the new layout.
The new design at Houghton is not wildly long, especially given the rarefied air of the Highveld. In order to defend the golf course from the longer hitters, strategically positioned bunkers have been used to catch the wayward drive, thus making club selection essential. The new greens have been outlined with subtle slopes to protect the integrity of the course.
