   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
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

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...
