FAQ's

We are a world-class facility, offering a wide range of activities for our members and guests. There are a few common questions that tend to be asked by new members. We hope that this FAQ section will give you a better understanding of what we have to offer. If you have any further queries, please feel free to contact us.

When can I practise?
We are open from 06h00 – 21h00 during the week, and from 06h00 – 20h00 on weekends in summer. In winter, we are open from 07h00 – 20h00 during the week, and from 07h00 – 19h00 on weekends. Our facility closes every Friday morning until 12h00, allowing us time to prepare for the weekend.

Can I bring family and friends to practise with me?
Of course! Guests are welcome to join you at a daily visitor’s rate. These rates vary during peak and off-peak times, and guests that aren’t using the facility may enter for free. There are also daily rates for juniors. You can pick up a list of our daily visitor’s rates at reception.

Can someone else use my membership card?
Unfortunately not. Your personal membership card is for your use only. If someone else is found using your card, your membership will be cancelled immediately.

Am I allowed to play off the grass tees?
Yes, of course you can! For a nominal fee per month, members can upgrade their membership to include grass tees. The added fee structure is necessary because grass is considerably more expensive to maintain than mats. The wear and tear on the golf balls is also significantly greater on grass. Should you wish to upgrade your membership, please contact us.

How can I obtain an official handicap?
When you join a golf club, you automatically receive a handicap card. Once you have entered your scores from 6 full rounds the handicap system will calculate your official handicap. In order to provide our members with an affordable official handicap, we have joined forces with Observatory, Crown Mines, Eagle Canyon, and Wingate Golf Club. Once you have a handicap card, you are automatically charged affiliated rates at almost all of the golf clubs in South Africa, which is a considerable saving over the non-affiliated rate.

What makes our facility unique?
We are the only facility in SA that provides ‘bottomless’ buckets of golf balls, as well as free professional help daily through our master class demonstrations and ‘call for help’ clinics. These are hosted by our Gary Player Certified Professionals, and cover all aspects of the game. There are also masterclass seminars three times a month on golf rules, golf fitness and golf psychology. All this and more is given to members at no extra cost! In addition, we organise golf days on Sundays, at many of the top golf courses in Gauteng. Members receive discounted rates, and are welcome to bring guests for a slightly higher fee. Bookings are essential and can be done through our call centre on 0861 752 966 or through our online booking system.

Can I freeze, suspend, or deactivate my membership?
Members can suspend their membership for a minimum of one month (maximum period of six months). This can be done by contacting our Member Services department, 30 days prior to deactivation. There is a nominal monthly fee to cover our administration costs.

If I bring my children will they have to pay?
If your child wants to hit some golf balls there is a flat rate, which varies depending on the age of your children. If your child is not a golfer and wants to access the World of Kids there is a R50 daily fee payable – you also receive a complimentary R25 voucher for Dimples Café.

What happens if I come without my access card?
That’s no problem – you will need to present either your ID document or driver’s license, or some form of identification which includes a photograph.

Can I bring my golf bag?
We are a bag-free zone, however should you wish to bring your bag inside, we will happily store it for you in our club storage area. You will then be able to carry your clubs in a metal club rack, which can be found in the car park or at club storage.

What about the PwC Wedge and Putt?
The PwC Wedge and Putt is a facility within the World of Golf Theme Park. All members and daily visitors are welcome to play on this great par-3 course; however, it does close from time to time due to corporate events and league.
