The first impression that consumes you when you stepped onto the reception area of Euphoria Golf Estate & Hydro is that of extraordinary convivial, welcoming the visitor with the ambience from the flooring to the ceiling and responsiveness of the reception personnel. The establishment was recently transformed from a dream into a reality in less than four years. From humble beginnings, the estate has grown rapidly and smoothly into one of the finest estate of its kind. From the outset, the Erasmus family from Naboomspruit, (now renamed Mookgophong), who have developed the property as they set their sight on creating a unique development.
The family wanted to be the first of its kind wherever possible. This has been successfully accomplished with the first lady signature course in the country, their first course in the country, the first course in Africa to be designed be a European Design Company, the first estate with a Macadamia and Olive tree orchard, the first estate in South Africa with four deferent and unique residential developments and the first clubhouse in the country with a cable car docking station linking a mountain top estate and a restaurant with the clubhouse and the golf course.
The golf course was recently a hive of activities when it hosted the ANC’s top brass ahead of the January 8 Statement which was held at Polokwane’s Peter Mokaba Stadium. The most noticeable faces on this magnificent golf course were President Cyril Ramaphosa and Limpopo Premier, Stan Mathabatha teeing off. Regarding the golf course, avid golfers will appreciate the intimate views of Euphoria’s lush fairways and greens afforded by these stands. Nestled around the 18-hole championship golf course, the 401 stands are comfortable average size of 1025m2. There also stands around the golf course that are specifically situated away from the course, with views into the Bushveld.
