There are many non residential, second home golf estates in South Africa and very few can match Elements Private Golf Reserve. A stunning, unique golf estate on 495 hectares of property located only one and a half hours drive north of Pretoria in the magnificent Waterberg region of the Limpopo Province. 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 place was amazing! The house is fully equipped and can fit all your needs. RnR holidays just failed to book me properly. My name wasn't on the arrival list nor did I get the access code to receive my keys. This is a recurring problem they don't address.

Great place to get away and just chill. The pool needed to be cleaned. The wildlife that came to say hello was a bonus. BOMA area is fantastic for a late evening. Thanks for a working ice machine. Just have a look at the electrical wiring when it rains as the power tends to trip.

While staying at the Zebula Golf Estate we were tipped by their caddiemaster to also play at the nearby Elements Private Golf Reserve at Waterberg. Getting there is a different story with a badly maintained dirt road so calculate at least 30/40 minutes of additional driving time. The course designed by Peter Matkovich however is truly one with a championship layout. Although the team was hoping for a nice thunderstorm that day - after a drought of a month or so - the fairways and greens were still in an absolute fantastic condition. Enjoyed their signature par-3 9th hole and take at least two clubs more. The clubhouse is located on top of a ridge and overlooks most of the back-nine holes. What a view and also our compliments for the staff and golf crew from the time of arrival, lunch and leaving this real gem ‘in the middle of nowhere’. One of our better golf experiences in South Africa and will definitely return.

This Peter Matkovich Signature may be one of his best. The course flows nicely from start to finish. I appreciate the beautiful tree-lined fairways that are manicured underneath, thus allowing for some form of escape. The greens are brilliant and the Clubhouse looks down on it all. The Par-3 9th hole features a tee shot over water that we convinced management was the perfect spot for a shootout. I now understand it has become a guest group feature! Unfortunately, if it's dry the course suffers. When its lush, it's one of the best in Africa - in my top 10!

I am an avid golf player (not very good at it), and strive to play as many courses in South Africa as i can fit into my lifetime. I visited Elements as part of a group of friends and played two rounds of golf on this beautiful nature reserve. Elements really goes the extra mile when it comes to their golfing visitors. Upon arrival you are met by staff who immediately take possession of your clubs, clean where necessary, and take it to the first tee, fitted to your golf cart. On the course there are at least four drinking water points filled with ice cold water. This comes in handy when you play on 40 degrees celsius conditions, trust me! The staff is so friendly and helpful and the food at halfway house, just delicious. The course was in absolute fantastic condition and in my view should rate amongst the top 10 in the country. There is ample game to see on the course that add to the experience. The only negative is the horrendous gravel road (about 18km), from Bela-Bela, but this cannot be attributed to the Golf reserve.
