Nestled in the foothills of the Steenkampsberg Mountain Range, the Highland Gate Golf and Trout Estate is one of the most prestigious golf and fly-fishing resorts in South Africa. Spanning over 700 hectares in size, it boasts an 18 Hole Ernie Els signature golf course, a large clubhouse, various trout fishing dams, and several spectacular hiking trails and mountain biking routes.
Voted 21 out of the top 100 golf courses in South Africa in 2016, the Highland Gate golf course offers a truly breath-taking visual experience. Making full use of the naturally dramatic terrain and vegetation, the layout is technically challenging. From, stark changes in elevation, natural water features and the odd stone ‘koppie’ along the course, it is a testing experience for professionals. However, multiple teeing areas and strategic hazard placement mean that it is suitable for golfers with varying degrees of experience.
Words from the course designer – Mr Ernie Els – resonate with all who visit this beautiful establishment: “Whenever I go back to Highland Gate I’m always taken aback by the sheer beauty of this place […] Take it from me, a world class golf course in such a unique and special setting as this is a rare combination.”

To compliment the championship level Dullstroom golf course, the estate’s clubhouse houses a fully-stocked pro-shop, a pub and a restaurant serving up hearty country-style fare.
