De Zalze Golf
Now part of the Spier group.
The name De Zalze originates from the three adjoining wine producing farms namely, Groote Zalze, Kleine Zalze & De Vleie. The historical buildings on the estate, including a manor house and precinct, date back to 1838. In 2000 the Spier Group purchased an interest in the property and together with Kleine Zalze have remodelled the estate into one of the most sought after golf real estate properties in the Cape Winelands of South Africa. The Estate boasts a working wine farm [Kleine Zalze], as well as fairways surrounded by vineyards, olive groves & lavender fields, which will all produce marketable crops for the estate.
