Modderfontein Golf Club – a hidden gem in Johannesburg

Modderfontein Golf Club

Hidden away in Modderfontein, east of Sandton, Johannesburg, you will find the picturesque and harmonious Modderfontein Golf Club.

Established in 1935, the golf course offers a beautiful parkland setting, firm greens and tree-lined fairways. Modderfontein Golf Course has consistently rated in the top 60 of South African golf courses ever since.

It offers a challenging course with 18 holes and many water ways, directly in front of the greens or parallel to the fairways. Each of the holes has its own unique feature.

Strategic bunkering provides an excellent test of golf even for the most accomplished golfer.

Modderfontein Golf Course also hosts numerous important amateur tournaments, which sees close to 40 000 rounds per year.

In 1990, the course was redesigned by Hugh Baiocchi, with seven dams and 12 meandering streams to ensure that there is enough water for the course all year round.

The clubhouse was upgraded in 1997 and now boasts facilities capable of hosting weddings, conferences and Corporate Golf Days.

The Function room, overlooking the 18th hole of the golf course, can accommodate up to 130 people with dancing or 160 without a dance floor and all the functions are catered for on-site by a qualified chef.

Modderfontein Golf Club definitely offers the highest standard of personalised service for its members and guests.

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!
