The Els Club at Copperleaf is the second ‘Signature' Ernie Els designed golf course in South Africa. This beautiful course has been designed to the highest possible specifications and USGA Specifications. The Els Club at Copperleaf is based just 40 minutes outside of Sandton or just 15 minutes outside of Centurion in Mnandi, Gauteng.

Copperleaf is best defined as ‘modern classic' - the layout tests every aspect of the game and provides even the longest hitters with a challenge.

Course is a real gem. Perfect conditions and facilities. They will get new carts this year which is needed. Some bunkers are a bit tight after the heavy rains. But demanding yet fair course, love to play it.
