    Randpark Golf Club (Firethorn) in Johannesburg
    The second course on this development that some rate 5 out of 5 in terms of design and player-friendly greens. Again the lively clubhouse overlooking the course ranks highly. The Randpark Golf Club is located in Ranburg, Johannesburg, close to the Cresta Mall. The Firethorn Golf Course is a championship course and can play very long at times.

    Not impressed with the changes made to the course. Seems like a waste of money. The cart paths have not been upgraded and has loads of potholes. The bridges constructed are poorly done.

    I don't play golf but I know plenty of the members at this club who often tell me how amazing the course is, especially since they did the upgrades! What I can speak about personally is the club house and their great food and vibe! Friday night on the balcony is just such great time! They make super food and have live entertainment for the guests to enjoy... We loved it so much that we even had our wedding reception at the club house and it was the most wonderful night! Leanne handled all of the arrangements and did such a super job - we're going to another wedding there later this year and I just know it will be spectacular!

    I love visiting Randpark Golf Club with my hubby for a Nine Hole breakfast on a Friday morning. The facilities at the club are excellent, the staff are so professional and accommodating, nothing beats a Fourball Favourite pizza on a Friday night and the guys have two completely different 18 hole courses to play on. They cater for conferences, weddings and social functions and the trouble they go to is incredible!! I took a walk across the new Firethorn course and it is beautiful!! The meals are such good value for money and excellent quality. Highly recommended

    With the upgrading of the Firethorn course, Bushwillow has experienced unbelievable 'traffic.'
    Yet it is still in fantastic condition. If modern day golfers would only repair pitch-marks
    on the greens and divots on the fairways, it would be even better.

    We played this course last Sunday and the greens were in shocking condition. I wish they watered them. the rest of the course was in very good nick. Would not have played here if I knew the greens to be in such a bad condition.

    A very good experience but not as great as Simola. The course is in good condition, greens are fast and difficult to stop the ball on certain holes. The par 3, 15th is my favourite but there are no amazingly beautiful holes.

    On friday, I played this course and it's in amazing condition. I guess..most courses in Jozi are looking good after the rains. But the best aspect of this club is the entertainment on a friday afternoon. There must have been over 200 people, drinking, eating and partying.

    The course has ben renamed but there are no changes to the very traditional Randpark course. It tends to play very long when the wind blows. There are about 3 holes that are most interesting but the rest are just good. There is not much scenery to make this cousr exceptional. The pro shop is looking a tad empty. I wonder if this club is in a bit of financial trouble. The club is definately not located in the best part of Jo'burg.

    a very stunning golf course with rolling hills, wide fairways and very player-friendly greens - fast with subtle slopes. I would recommend this course to anyone visiting Johannesburg.

    I give it 5 points out of 5 for service and design

    Randpark has been a top golf club for a long time now and with the hotel going up it is a must go golf course for a holiday destination. Awesome work by all the staff.

    Randpark Club has become the ultimate urban golf destination on par with excellence. With two courses, a 5 Star Hotel and Spa, it is one of the most desired Clubs in the Country!

    After a lot of rain, the course played incredibly long. It's an amazing course.
