I played today in extreme heat & Glendower had no carts. I suppose they want to preserve the SA Open beauty of the course. In 18 holes, we only spotted 1 cart. So if you want a cart, try another course for now.

To all those South African golfers that are tempted to spend their hard earned rand on overseas golf tours - try Glendower first. For an equivalent experience overseas the cost will be around $300.00 = R 5'000.00. For that kind of money you will get...More

Glendower is one of the very good golf clubs in South Africa and is situated in the Bedfordview area. Booking over weekends are essential. Prices are fairly high.
