About this business for saleInvestment & Development Opportunity-Golf Estate
On offer is an exciting investment/development opportunity to buy or partner in a private owner-run lodge, B&B and golf destination offering overnight accommodation on 250 hectares of which the majority is on top of a mountain overlooking a beautiful valley.
This gem estate with its mountain climate is an experience for guests to enjoy all that nature has to offer with its wildlife and with some misty mornings and cosy evenings around the fireplace.
The area is a prime location for attracting overseas visitors, local visitors, business groups and obvious golfers alike with its scenic beauty and many attractions. The estate ensures a “piece-of-mind” for guests away from the city life and traffic to enjoy uninterrupted views of the beautiful valley with its spectacular sunrises and sunsets.
The farm was rezoned for tourism in 2008 and the golf course, clubhouse, chalets and all other entertainment facilities is well established. Very few courses would boast the views of the entire course.
The 9-hole (18 tee) par 71 links course is challenging and is labeled as the first Mountain Links course. Golf groups are the main focus and the venue lends itself perfectly for an unforgettable golf breakaway.
Themes for typical events vary greatly from business groups, birthday events, family or friends together, anniversaries or serious golf changes amongst colleagues. The varying lengths, club selection and approach angles on the front and back nine ensures the challenge of a full 18-hole championship course.
The estate also offers swimming, birding, mountain biking, fishing and walking trails and the estimated set-up costs for a similar golf and accommodation estate facility will be about R100m.
