The ABF President's Cup golf day is set for the 29 June 2011 at the Houghton Golf Club, on the new Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course.
Four balls can be booked at a cost of R2 800-00 which includes green fees and dinner.
According to its website, the 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 Opens, the first of which took place in 1951. The course has also been the chosen venue for the prestigious Alfred Dunhill Championship.
The newly designed course is not brutally long. In order to defend the course from the longer hitters, strategically positioned bunkers have been used extensively to catch the wayward drive, thus making club selection essential. The new greens have been contoured with rolling undulations and subtle slopes to protect the integrity of the course.
The parkland layout is dotted with ponds and dams, an abundance of flowering shrubs also provide great variety and colour. Situated adjacent to the greenbelt of The Wilds the site is a perfect extension to Johannesburg's natural fauna and flora and is a proclaimed bird sanctuary.
