Ladies at The Wanderers Golf Club

Brief history

In the late 1930s the Chairman of The Wanderers Club, Victor Kent, requested Felix Oliver to construct a golf club off Corlett Drive in Illovo. He realized that the SA Railways were 'eyeing' The Wanderers Club land in Station Street for extensions to the main Johannesburg station. In 1939, an 18 hole golf course was opened. The ladies section was established simultaneously and the first lady captain was Mrs Kay Deane. The ladies section has thrived over the last 70 years and currently has about 70 members.

A number of Springbok golfers were Wanderers members: Julia Wipplinger (1964), Jenny Barclay (1969, 1972, 1973 and 1975), Cheran Gerber (1972-1974 and 1976), Lisle Nel (1974), Joanne Norton (1998) and, most recently, Tandi Cunningham (nee Von Reuben - 2008).

Some other well-known lady members are Vivienne Player, Thelma Donen, Joyce Williams, Dr Helen Suzman, Doreen Sanders, Peg Pentelow and Pat Pretorius.


Vice-President: Nicky O'Mahony
Lady Captain: Linda Clark
Committee: Paula Forssman, Tessa Hinton, Sue Norval, Fiona Weeple, Jo Morley-Jepson
