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. The course is one of the finest examples of the ‘Highveld grassland' genre, and players experience a sense of openness and freedom with the Magaliesberg backdrop adding to the country atmosphere.

On arrival the staff were disorganized and not friendly or welcoming our questions were answered with aggression and it seemed as thought we were more of a problem than people with wallets

The course was great and challenging with the winter winds, however the experience with staff in the Proshop, was unacceptable. It seemed from the interaction we had whilst in the presence of other gofers, if you are not a regular at Copper-Leaf, then you are not given the friendly experience. Our experience will not take us back to Copper-Leaf as a Company.
