Welcome to the

Jewel of the Freestate

Come home to The Clarens Golf Estate and leave behind the rush of the commercial world. Nestled in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains on the edge of the dramatic Golden Gate nature reserve in the Eastern Free State, Clarens is fast becoming the perfect place to escape to for peace, tranquility and breath-taking beauty.

The Clarens Golf Estate sits quietly in a valley with spectacular scenery and is just is 2½ hours by car from both Johannesburg and Durban. The estate features a country style 18-hole golf course. The area is rich with fossils, and the surrounding sandstone mountains, often dusted with snow during the winter months, are multi-coloured geological wonders.
