The town of Linksfield forms part of the greater Johannesburg area. Many of the residents of Linksfield commute to work in Johannesburg and surrounding areas. Originally a farm the area was surveyed for residential purposes in 1922.

Linksfield is mainly a residential town and has many upmarket properties. There are plenty of malls and other facilities nearby. The OR Tambo airport is about 15 minutes away.

Attractions in the Linksfield area include Bruma Lake and a number of golf courses. In fact, the name of the town has a direct link (excuse the pun) to golf as the word “links” will be well-known to golfers. Another attraction in the area is Harvey Nature Reserve which is 7 acres in extent and is a pleasant place to go for a walk.

The town is situated in a convenient position to access many of the attractions in the Gauteng area.
