Stay 3 nights at the delightful Walkersons Hotel and Spa and play two rounds of golf at the Ernie Els signature Highland Gate Golf Course. Explore the qauint tourist village of Dullstroom with its cosey pubs, arts & crafts shops and historic architecture. While in the area, why not try your hand at flyfishing, which apart from the magnificent scenery, is the main reasons why Dullstroom has become such a popular holiday destination.

Highland Gate is one of South Africa’s newest courses, a spectacular one too which fully embraces the beautiful landscape of our country. It is one of the best and most scenic golf courses South Africa has to offer and can accurately be described as a hidden gem.

The course was designed by legendary South African golfer Ernie Els, who fell in love with the location back in 2005. “It reminds me of Gleneagles in the Scottish Highlands. The expansive views seem to go on forever,” Els noted when launching the project.

There are three flyfishing dams on the Highland Gate estate. Charming Dullstroom, the highest town in South Africa at 2100 metres, is known as South Africa’s premier flyfishing destination, with a good selection of well-stocked dams and natural flyfishing on the Waterfalls River.
