Clarens Golf and Trout Estate Suburb of Clarens

Edmeston party - While the course is indeed challenging and the greens are in excellent condition, the fairways are almost non-existent.,we feel that charging premium fees for a round of golf on a course which does not have fairways is a bit much. Lovely clubhouse, friendly staff and the sandwiches we had were excellent.

Parys Town of Northern Free State

Fantastic weekend destination - Had an amazing weekend in Parys. Unfortunately their roads are bad but are in the process of being repaired. Not too far from Johannesburg for a quick weekend away.
