OGC is a club steeped in history and from its early and humble beginnings in 1914, the club has grown and evolved into one of the more popular destinations in the Central Gauteng region. The course, while challenging, offers an enjoyable experience for golfers of varying skill level and ensures that golfers return often to test their game. Our objective is to provide the highest quality of service to our valued members and guests on a course that is as visually appealing as any in the region. We have worked hard over the years to become a vital part of the community and strive to accommodate all golfers who have come through to enjoy our course and what we have to offer. Like our slogan says, a club and course for the people.


Our membership packages are designed to provide the avid golfer with an affordable and cost effective offering but at the same time allowing members to be part of our OGC family. Members will get to enjoy more than the course as we are constantly striving to provide greater value to our services.


At OGC one of our key philosophies is to keep the game within reach while maintaining a course that can be enjoyed by all. Based on this we have ensured that our rates are not only competitive but feasible to both members and guests.


OGC boasts a newly renovated clubhouse complete with conference/dining hall that can accommodate a multitude of functions including Weddings, Birthday Parties, Seminars. Feel free to contact us for more information or if we can assist with your next function/event.


We believe in assisting golfers and corporates in hosting events that are both memorable and successful. Our qualified team will assist you in every step of the process to ensure that your golf day is tailor-made to suit your needs and runs seamlessly.
