Witbank Golf Club dates back to 1907. It was built by one of the Coal mines (possibly Rand Mines). The old Club House, which was made of stone, was moved stone by stone in 1972 from its original position and is now the Pro-Shop. They had sand greens until 1935 when we went over to Florida Greens. These were changed to Bent grass in 1985. The modification to the Club House took place recently and is now an architecturally constructed building. Originally the Old Pretoria Road ran through the course but with the advent of the N4 Highway the two sections are now joined by a tunnel below the Highway.
