Where2Golf says: 

At the aptly named Silver Lakes Country Club you will first get a chance to take a look at the estate's many and varied housing styles, which line the opening four holes. However, with two large and six small connected lakes running through the golf course, its no surprise that water hazards are going to play an important and progressive part in your round. Water arrives in style at the short par-4 5th. The relatively flat and open terrain that follows, is home to an ever increasing number of water hazards, both hugging and splitting fairways, and protecting several greens. By the par-5 14th you'll feel that there is far more water out there than "terra firma-fairway"; a feeling that will return as you make water-threatened approach shots to the long par-4 17th and par-5 18th. With a water surrounded island double-green (shared by the par-3 9th and par-5 18th) and island fairways to be negotiated, your round could give you something of a sinking feeling, especially if wayward hitting has taken over. For the target golfer who enjoys a challenge, this is a course to relish. The extravagance and size of some of the housing, is a theme taken up and reflected in the size and roller-coaster nature of many of the greens. Designer Peter Matkovich has even thrown in a couple of boulder-strewn holes (at 6 and 7), further adding to the vast array of course design features employed here. Perhaps this is what has inspired many home-owners to also take a bold and exciting approach to their house designs !

Did you know?

Uniformity of housing styles, demanded on many real estate developments, was clearly not the business model here at Silver Lakes. It seems that every conceivable style of home has been built around the golf course including : modern, thatched, Tuscan, African, colonial, mansionesque, Disneyesque and traditional. Alongside these residences, Silver Lakes can also boast many natural havens, home to a wide array of wildlife. Birds such as whydas, larks and grass owls inhabit the grassland areas, while a variety of animals, including mongoose, cape clawless otters and the aggresive giant African bullfrog, might also be seen.
