The Els Club, Copperleaf, South Africa

Copperleaf Estates



The Els Club Copperleaf is situated in the heart of Gauteng, at the edge of the city, but feels like it’s a million miles from the hustle and bustle of urban life. Set among unique grasslands and rocks, the course utilises the natural features of the landscape. At 7,315 meters from the tips, this is a long golf course. However, there are a variety of teeing areas to ensure it is playable and enjoyable for golfers of all standards.

There is a strong emphasis on the environment. The wetlands constitute one of the estate’s most important ecosystems and have been rehabilitated, while the reserve areas of the estate are home to several endangered species. Copperleaf is designed to maintain a sense of space with the majority of the property dedicated to parkland, the golf course and acres of walking and biking routes.
