Located 15km to the south of Johannesburg's city centre, the residential development Eye of Africa embraces a modern lifestyle while offering the peace and quiet of the African bushveld, along with exceptional safety features. The founding vision behind this golf and residential estate is to create a vibrant recreational, social and community hub that will become the key destination and gathering space for Eye of Africa’s community.
Living Spaces At Eye Of Africa
The original developers coined the estate’s name “Eye of Africa” because it captured the beauty of the region and hinted at its proximity to Johannesburg, the economic hub of Africa. Construction began in 2007 with the infrastructure and first phase of residential properties.
Here the standard of living is only rivaled by the sense of community and facilities available to all residents. The Estate also offers you peace of mind with 24-hour on-site security, access control and patrolling guards to provide a safe and secure lifestyle for you and your family. The Eye of Africa is more than a location; it’s one of South Africa’s best lifestyle estates.
With all the advantages of being close to the economic powerhouse of Africa, but far from the madding crowd, the Eye of Africa Golf & Residential Estate is great place to bring up kids knowing they can wander around safely in a secure and contained, but exciting and just-wild-enough, environment.
The Estate also offers you peace of mind with 24-hour on-site security, access control and patrolling guards to provide a safe and secure lifestyle for you and your family. The entrance gate is also controlled and monitored by using Biometrics (fingerprint recognition) at the gate.
In addition, the 7.5 km long Clearvu fence surrounding the development is a thermal camera detection system. 10-strand electric fencing has been added to the fence to secure the Estate further.
Build your dreams and see your vision come to life at the Eye of Africa. The estate's new phase of Freehold Stands is an opportunity to start building from the bottom and living at the top in a secure and luxurious atmosphere. Stand sizes measure from 794m² to an outstanding 12 000m². The destination is spectacular and your future at the Eye, bright.
Being an original has a certain appeal, but owning an Origins luxury home appeals to each and every sense. The sublime north-facing full title homes that make up the Origins can only be described as architectural perfection. With configurations from four bedrooms up to seven, these homes reign supreme.
The estate's single- and double-story Stone Quarter clusters promise a unique living experience that effortlessly fuses elegant designs with the tranquility of nature. Owning a Stone Quarter cluster home offers residents the perfect home within the Eye, combining functionality and gorgeous architectural lines with a central location within the estate.
The modern Village apartments are perfect for those who crave the bustling nature of the city, but still wish to retire at night to the quiet, countryside appeal of the Eye.

Golf At Eye Of Africa
The course is big and bold with wide inviting fairways leading to large, gently sloping greens that run firm and fast. Many of the tee positions are elevated so golfers can see all before them, eliminating any nasty surprises from hidden bunkers. The 18 holes are routed in an out-and-back fashion through some hilly terrain and such is the scale of the layout – with substantial distances between a number of the holes – the use of a cart during a round is mandatory. There’s an expansive feel to playing golf on a course like this (where tees can be set up to play as long as 7 200 metres within an estate of more than 725 ha).
Signature Greg Norman Designed Courses
Designed by the legendary Greg (Great White Shark) Norman, the 7 200-metre, par 72 championship course meanders through the natural grassland, looping back on itself. Eye of Africa is the first Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD) championship course opened in Africa and it sits naturally in some of the highest rolling hills of the Gauteng region. This magnificent course is home to the South African PGA Championship.
Tuition & Driving Range
Whether you are just getting started or have been playing for decades, Eye of Africa Golf Academy offers an affordable lesson package to meet your goals and budget. These lessons focus on fundamentals that build muscle memory and put you in mid-season form when you step on the tee.
Your lesson will consist of a half-hour of personalized instruction from one of the clubhouse's PGA professionals. While other teaching facilities try to get you to swing like a tour pro, their emphasis is more personal; we want to maximize your abilities. The club's individual lesson programs are just that, individualised attention, whether you are new to the game or a low handicap golfer.
The driving range, practice green, and short game area are open to visitors and residents.
Eye Of Africa Membership
