In the middle of the flowing waters of the Vaal River on the border of the Free State and the North West Province, rests an island of excellent quiet and beauty. On this island, the new and impressive Vaal de Gráce Golf Estate promises a novel kind of lifestyle experience, second to none.
Only 45 minutes drive from Johannesburg, Vaal de Gráce offers an 18-hole championship golf course located on an island in the middle of the calm waters of the Vaal River.
The development covers far more than the flow and ebb of greens deluxe. Aside from the beautiful river running into Vaal de Gráce, the islet features a host of natural fauna, including a large variety of bird species, impala, springbuck, mongoose, and more.
The distinct cry of the fish eagle is generously clear early morning or close to sunset, due to the abundance of these magnificent birds in the area.
The course and the design of Vaal de Gráce’s houses were carefully outlined to blend into the exquisite surroundings, a truly excellent piece of land… Here you will have time and space – to play and to relax, yet to be in the midst of a unique kind of beauty and grace… Vaal de Gráce Golf Estate is certainly the ideal breakaway destination, be it permanently or fleeting.
One of the Estate’s central inspirations is Nick Price, the South African born Zimbabwean who has, among dozens of wins, seized the Open Championship and the PGA Championship – the latter more than once. In the mid-nineties, he was seen as the best player in the world.
Known as one of the kindest fellows in the gentlemen’s game, he has persisted to play a great game – and these days his knowledge of golf courses is put to first-class value as a designer. Over the last decade, Nick has co-operated on the design of ten golf courses with Steve Smyers, Craig Schreiner, Tommy Fazio, and Tom Fazio.
He is now working on his own through his own company, Nick Price Golf Course Design, on projects such as this in the United States and other international sites. Nowhere is his expertise clearly more visible than at Vaal de Gráce Golf Estate – the first full championship course designed by Nick Price in South Africa.
