DESCRIPTION
Ebotse is one of the environmental success stories of the century. The site for the estate was a defunct sand quarry, infested with alien vegetation and a haven for criminal activities - now transformed into a beautiful and safe estate. The scarred earth offered Peter a clean slate to sculpt the holes as there was no natural terrain to protect. He chose an Irish links style course that integrates well with the quarry and Rynfield Dam, around which 7 holes play. There is plenty of elevation coupled with rolling fairways making this a unique experience in Gauteng.
