The 10 best golf estates in South Africa

New World Wealth has recently published a ranking of the top golf estates in South Africa.

The report is based on a number of visits by the New World Wealth team to top estates across the country.

According to SA real estate advisor Basil Weinrich – who helped compile the ratings – residential estate living is on the rise, especially among the more affluent. He estimates that over 40% of South African HNWIs live or have homes on residential estates.

The ratings were based on the following criteria:

  • Communal gardens and parks;
  • Design and space;
  • Maintenance;
  • Location, views and scenery;
  • Security features;
  • Activities and facilities available on the estate;
  • Condition of course;
  • Memorability of course;
  • Clubhouse, change rooms and halfway house facilities;
  • Location, views and scenery.

Based on these criteria, the top 10 golf course picks for 2019 include (in alphabetical order):
