    With the Jo'burg Open on at the moment, I am fortunate to be doing the score recording again this year. The West Course is the shorter course of the two at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington and I do think it is the easier of the two courses. The fairways are also kikuyu and the greens bent grass and, when the Professionals play here, this course becomes a 71 par round and not a 72. The course is in great condition and today, day two, we managed to finish before the storm hit!! So, tomorrow brings a new day with new challenges.

    You will always receive five start experience at Royal Johannesburg. The West course is my favorite and can get challenging in Tournament conditions from the back and tucked away pin positions.

    Easier than the East

    This is one of my favourite courses in Johannesburg. It's long, challenging and a true test of your golfing ability. Yesterday, in windy conditions I shot a very respectable 79. This course boasts 2 of the longest, consective par 4's in the world - the 10th & 11th. Always in amzing condition are the fairways and greens.
