Artist's Description

Bronkhorstspruit, my hometown, is a small farming town 50 km east of Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa along the N4 highway towards Witbank. It lies on the border between the Gauteng and Mpumalanga provinces.

In 1858, a group of Voortrekkers settled in the Bronkhorstspruit creek, which was originally called Kalkoenkransrivier (‘turkey ridge river’). In June 1897, the South African Republic gave its approval for the town, then already named Bronkhorstspruit by locals.
In 1880 it was the scene of the action at Bronkhorstspruit, an important event in the early days of the First Boer War.
There is disagreement about where the town got its name from. Some believe it was named after the farmer JG Bronkhorst, while others say that it was named after a plant, the Bronkors, that grew in the region of the creek.
The Bronkhorstspruit runs through the golf course.
Most of the holes have water in play and the river is crossed at least six times. No less than 10 holes have the river in play one way or another.
When playing at Bronkhorstspruit golf club you will find that you can either play conservatively or go for “risk and reward.” Either way it is always fun yet demanding to play on this course.
