   Nondela Golf Estate Est. 2008

Where2Golf says: 

The centrepiece of the Nondela Golf Estate was due to be an Ernie Els designed golf course, scheduled to open for play in 2008. That plan did not come to fruition. The course was built, but as of 2013 has not become operational. One imagines the course is steadily disappearing as the grass grows ever taller. The latest vision for the Estate may well have lurched towards a "housing-only with no golf" solution for this project.

The original Nondela masterplan envisioned a golf course that would reflect the northern Drakensberg's open, rolling, scenic countryside, with stretches of paper-bark forest also in the mix. The real estate would have looked down over the course, as opposed to having houses scattered among and alongside the holes. The valley-floor layout was intended to have several water bodies, such as wetlands, lakes and ponds, fed by the Sandspruit River, which runs through the Estate. The development’s namesake, the Nondela Peak, is visible from every point on the site.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene.
