Property in Benoni
Diverse, vibrant and upbeat, Benoni is situated in Gauteng and forms part of the Greater Johannesburg region. Located on the East Rand, this is a place that was once acclaimed for its gold mining significance, but is now known predominantly as an industrial centre and service hub.
Attracting an eclectic mix of residents, Benoni exudes multi-cultural charm and is a wonderful spot to be based, for both families and professionals. Here residents can enjoy a wealth of amenities in the immediate and surrounding areas, the highlight of which is perhaps the Benoni Country Club.
This illustrious establishment boasts an immaculate 18 hole golf course, which presents a formidable challenge to even the most advanced veterans of the sport, with five dams to navigate, not to mention a number of bunkers and clusters of gum trees.
The course is known for its beauty and wildlife – look out for regal blesbok and springbok grazing in the foliage, while the dams attract a riveting array of bird species. The club acts as a multi-purpose venue that can be rented out for any special occasion, while non-golfers can delight in the other onsite leisure facilities, including tennis courts, bowls and squash courts.
Willowmoore Park is a popular cricket venue, hosting One Day International games, while Kempton Park golf course and Glendower golf club are less than twenty kilometres away. Those in need of retail therapy can visit the many malls in the region and nearby to it, including the Lakeside Shopping Mall and Northmead Square. The Lakeside Shopping Mall is unmistakeable, as it was constructed to mimic a Mississippi steamboat and offers an array of upmarket shops to choose from.
Nearby Northmead, you will find the Bunny Park, which is sure to be a hit with the little ones, with many fluffy residents for kids to cuddle. Today, Benoni holds numerous charms, including its reservoirs and lakes, which attract many people to their banks in search of sunshine and picnics.
The town was named by Johan Rissik, who christened it after the name Rachel gave to her son in the Bible. The name means ‘son of my sorrows’ but today, Benoni is in no way a sorrowful spot – it is developing rapidly and attracting a wonderful assortment of people, who are drawn to its lively ambience and convenient positioning in one of Gauteng’s industrial centres.
