Situated on the outskirts of Pretoria, and built on land once lived on by Ernie Els' grandfather, the Copperleaf Golf & Country Estate was designed by Els and is home to the first Els Club in Ernie's homeland of South Africa.
As referenced on the club web site - The care and dedication put into the design South Africa's first Els Club are evident everywhere. The best design principles have been brought together to produce a golf course which is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all standards. The course makes optimal use of the natural topography, with landscaped recreational areas. Within its unforgettable setting of natural grasslands and rocks, the wide fairways, spectacular water hazards and challenging bunkers delight and test golfers of all levels.
Modern and minimalistic design principles are felt throughout the newly designed Els Club, offering spectacular facilities for golfers to relax after their round.
