Profile of Soweto Country Club
Soweto Country Club is situated in Pimville, Soweto, between Eldorado Park and Kliptown. The golf course was established in 1974. It had many name changes from Pimville Golf Course to Soweto West Country Club, Pimville Golf Club and ultimately was named Soweto Country Club.
The golf course has a long history. It had no proper fairways and the greens were made of sand. Golfers from different unions / associations fought for the use of the facility, simply because it was the only one in the country used by South African Black Golfers.
In 1980, development started and the sand greens were converted to grass greens and for the first time, the club had a green keeper or golf manages (the late Mr Fox Bosman) who was working very closely with the Executive Committee members.
The first President of the Soweto Country Club was the late Mr A Mahlasi, followed by Mr T Moloi and the Late Mr Mike Nompula who was president for sixteen times in consecutive years.
The Club prides itself in producing professionals who are currently playing or have played in the Sunshine Tour, we have Solly Sepeng, Theo Manyama, Norman Mashaba, John Mashigo, Mononga Nomwa, Makhosonke Mlotshwa, Rocky Tlhabanyani, Bafana Hlope and many others.
One of the best entertainment venues in Soweto is located opposite the course. Robbie’s place is the ideal spot to enjoy a post-match prize giving combined with a scrumptious meal, otherwise the friendly pub is perfect to enjoy a cold drink and discuss “the one that got away”!
