A  Jewel waiting to be explored

Pebble Rock Golf and Bushveld Estate, with 100 one hectare plots and 300 residential stands  set around its beautiful 18-hole golf course, is situated just 25 kilometers outside the CBD of Pretoria, close to the Roodeplaat Dam.

The first phase, Burkea Park,the one hectare bushveld plots, were developed in the late 1990’s, followed by the development of the Golf Village and Country Club that was opened in 2006. The developers Pebble Rock Properties, with partners Johan Visagie and Henk Kroon captured the charm of the bushveld together with the luxury of a golf course in everyday residential living. This way offering a real jewel waiting to be explored by residents and golfers alike.
