Highland Gate




Located only 2½ hours from Johannesburg, nestled in the Steenkampsberg mountain range near Dullstroom, Highland Gate is a challenging and fair test, with dramatic changes in elevation that add aesthetic and strategic value. Multiple teeing areas and strategic hazard placement mean it is the kind of layout that can be enjoyed by players of all standards. 

“I’m always taken aback by the sheer beauty of this place,” says Ernie. “There is a grandeur to this scenery that reminds me of the Scottish Highlands; a place such as Gleneagles, for instance. It has that same epic scale with expansive views that seem to go on forever. A world class golf course in such a unique and special setting as this is a rare combination.”
