Zwartkop Golf EstateGeneral Information
Zwartkop Golf Estate honours the tradition and history of the game of golf and offers golfers an unforgettable experience. The club was originally founded in 1933 by Iscor, and bought by Dale Hayes in 2001, and has subsequently broadened its membership base. The course was recently re-designed by Peter Matkovich.
Zwartkop Golf Estate is one of the oldest and most prestigious clubs in the Pretoria area, with some of golf’s greatest names such as Sam Snead, Peter Thompson, Bobby Locke, Gary Player, Seve Ballesteros, Lee Trevino, Nick Faldo, Ernie Els, Nick Price and Retief Goosen having graced the fairways. The course layout offers golfers the classic parkland challenge, with tree-lined fairways and the Hennops River meandering through ten of the 18 holes.
Beautiful old oak trees border the Kikuyu fairways and bent grass greens. The driving range can handle approximately 16 golfers at once, and offers target greens and bunkers, a chipping area, and main practice putting green. The course is unique in that it has five par threes and affords both men and women golfers equal tee times and membership fees.
Zwartkop’s 18-hole par-72 golf course was listed as one of Complete Golfers “must play” courses, and is rated in the top 100 South African courses from Golf Digest magazine. Rated par-71 from the men’s tees.

The estate will consist of eight villages, each with its own character. Residents have the choice of owning an apartment, cluster home or a stand on which they can design their own home. The Sarazen View and Locke Boulevard Villages offer luxury apartment living within an established golf estate, and a secure and maintenance-free investment.

Vardon Fairways, Hagen Greens and Snead Manor offer buyers the opportunity to reside in a cluster home within an exclusive manor village within the estate. Most of these overlook two of the most picturesque holes on the golf course, and the homes are perfect for the modern executive family.
The purchaser also has the option to design and build their own home on one of the 54 exclusive villa stands in Nelson Woods, or 47 in Jones Creek.
