The Highland Gate golf course is unlike any other course in South Africa, offering a technically superior golfing experience amidst some of the most spectacular scenery in the country.
Trout Fishing Dams

The remainder of the property is being left in its natural state for residents to enjoy the natural attractions it has to offer.
