Accommodation near Turffontein Racecourse

The Turffontein Racecourse is located in the leafy southern suburbs of Johannesburg, just 3 km outside of the thriving city centre.

Turffontein Racecourse was founded in 1887 by the Johannesburg Turf Club and is South Africa's premier horse racing venue. The track, which has a 3500m oval circumference, is considerably challenging and a true test of stamina for jockeys and their thoroughbreds. Since it was founded, the course has played host to numerous equine champions.

Annually, the racecourse sees approximately 40 race days attended by thousands of race-goers. A veritable highlight for many is the long-running and most prestigious horse race; The Summer Cup. This annually held event, which takes place in November, combines horse racing with the latest fashions as spectators dress up in their fanciest getups for the occasion.

Turffontein Racecourse has high-rise glass windows that provide spectators with a spectacular bird's eye view of not only the course, but Johannesburg's mesmerising skyline as well. Having recently undergone extensive renovations, race-goers now have the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with the jockeys and the horses prior to the commencement of the races. A day at the races is a unique experience for the family. With the mild Highveld weather and the racecourse's beautifully manicured gardens, spectators can enjoy a horse race or two while picnicking on the sprawling lawns.

While primarily used for horse racing events, Turffontein Racecourse is the ideal spot for a miscellany of functions - from conference meetings and weddings to end-of-year business luncheons. The in-house catering company 'Isizwe hospitality', alongside their acclaimed chefs, provide patrons with a quality dining experience.

Turffontien Reviews

Don't really know the town that much, but not ideal for someone used to urban life, my opinion.
