One of Africa’s most iconic golf courses – home to the world-famous ‘Extreme 19th’ – is for sale.
The Legend Golf Course and surrounding vacant land known as Mountain’s Mark, within the magnificent Big-5 Entabeni Safari Conservancy in South Africa, has been parcelled up into several lots with this sale focussing on the former championship Signature Course, awe-inspiring clubhouse and an area zoned for development for more than 120 large residential stands plus land zoned for a boutique hotel with 80-120 rooms.
It is also home to the Extreme 19th, the highest and longest Par 3 in the world, made famous on countless TV shows as well as in the media around the world. No single golf hole has generated as much press coverage as The Extreme 19th, with the tee-box accessible only by helicopter and played from the mountain’s edge to a green the shape of Africa 400m below.
The opportunity now exists for a developer to create an estate in Mountain’s Mark and make the Legend Golf Course part of one of the greatest golfing estates in the world.
The Signature Course is at the heart of the development, a world’s first, namely a championship golf course designed by eighteen of the world’s top golfers. A magnificent design where the player almost never sees another hole while playing, other than the one they are on giving that wonderful feeling of ‘millionaire’s golf’.
Unfortunately, it has suffered due to recent lack of maintenance and damage done to the course by free roaming game. With the correct knowledge, passion, and funding, it can be restored to its former glory as all the fairways, bunkers and golf cart paths are, for the most part, still intact.
The architecturally unique clubhouse complex features a large main restaurant and bar plus changing rooms as well as a large, thatched Africa boma capable of hosting large-scale functions plus a gymnasium.
The areas zoned for the 120 large residential stands ranging in size from 4,000 m2 to 27,000m2 are located in some of Africa’s most inspiring landscapes. The entire site is situated in the malaria-free Waterberg area of Limpopo and overlooked by the imposing Hanglip Mountain – home to the tee-box for the Extreme 19th.
The agents say: “With passionate management and funding, the development has huge amounts of potential to become a unique resort that could set new standards in exclusivity and become a landmark in South Africa as it was originally intended.
“The design and layout of Mountain’s Mark has been devised in such a way as to minimise the impact of the development on the stunning natural environment. It preserves the pristine bushveld and makes Mountain’s Mark one of the most environmentally sensitive and most prestigious developments of its kind. It is a unique opportunity to build something very special in one of the most beautiful and tranquil parts of the world abundant with wildlife and at the very heart of mother nature.”
