This is the biggest meteorite impact that geologists have yet found on Earth and it is nearly twice as big as the impact that killed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

This course is rapidly becoming one of the best courses in South-Africa.

The rates have been carefully structured, making it possible for both our members and visitors to enjoy a magnificent golfing experience.[more…]
