In the bustling metropolis of Johannesburg where retail and finance reign supreme, the need to relax and have fun is high. For those looking to enjoy the outdoors in the big city, you can be sure to have a good time at the CMR Golf Club in Roodepoort.

The CMR Golf Club is a beautiful 18-hole, 72-par parkland course with bent grass greens in Maraisburg, Roodepoort.

The club itself was founded in 1914 and was opened for play in 1932. Between 1924 and 1937, the course was extended to 12 holes. In 1937, it was decided to turn CMR into an 18-hole course.

CMR is now known for its greens, which are fast and slick and provide an excellent putting surface.

The fairways are beautifully-manicured and the course layout continues to rank up there with the best. The fairways have wide-open landing areas over gently rolling terrain offering the perfect setting for golf.


The facilities include a Pro Shop, practice green, clubhouse, driving range, halfway house, bar and restaurant. Caddies, carts and club rentals are also available.

A dining room/conference centre is available along the serene gardens along the 10th fairway for all your special occasions and your upcoming Christmas parties. Please book early to avoid disappointment and contact the office to secure your booking.

Coaching is also available for juniors, women, professionals and beginners from professional players with real results to look forward to.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
