The setting for Elements Private Golf Reserve is one of the biggest factors that count in its favor. The surrounding bushveld terrain varies between natural hillsides and open plains, with mountain views and perennial streams. The golf course meanders through a fertile valley of indigenous vegetation and artful landscaping. The Clubhouse is located on a rise overlooking the golf course from which 11 holes can be seen and offers an unsurpassed view of the course and surrounding landscape. The reception, administrative offices, kids play ground, bar, restaurant and main kitchen areas is located on the upper level.
