This exclusive estate is developed by Devco Africa, a turnkey solutions provider also responsible for marketing and finances.
What makes this development incredibly special to Ernie Els is that his grandfather, Ernie Vermaak, grew up on this exact 690 hectares of land in and around 1918, on a farm then known as Knoppies Laagte. Oupa Vermaak was also the instigator of the golf-fever that was to take hold of the next two Els generations.
Situated close to the main connecting road between Johannesburg and Pretoria, commuting is easy at only 12km from Fourways, 20km from Centurion and 22km from Midrand. Best of all, these destinations might as well be millions of miles away once the high security gates close behind you, leaving only country living, natural surroundings and peace of mind. All yours.
Gardener Ross Golf & Country Estate. More than a lifestyle. The best of two worlds.
Whilst still under construction, the course promises to mirror the way of the Big Easy with vastness. It will feature four par threes with the longest, a challenging downhill hole to a well-guarded green, measuring staggering 250m from the championship tee. The fairways, bunkers and greens will all bear the unmistakable voluminous generosity that has become the hallmark of Ernie Els.
As the course is under development no official rating has been assigned yet. It is however scheduled to be listed as a par-72. The golf course has been measured (using laser) and is awaiting verification and approval fro the Gauteng North Golf Union.
