MOOINOOI GOLF CLUB
The Mooinooi Golf Club creates a superb club experience, where every person is treated with respect, dignity, cordiality and fellowship in an unsurpassed setting. The Club provides and promotes opportunities for the full enjoyment of golf's recreational and social attractions.
The course opened in 1974 and was originally known as the Westplats Golf Club. The 9-hole course layout was done by a Mr Magielse, who was in charge of the Turf Grass Research Station of the Witwatersrand University near Alexandria, Johannesburg, in collaboration with John Pitchers. Pitchers was in his early 60's and ran the Rock Drill Workshop at Western Platinum Mine and being a keen golfer was asked to build the course by the General Manager, Andrew Saffy.
The course was open to mine employees only with visitors being permitted to play by invitation of the General Manager. This rule was later rescinded with membership being open to all.
