Eagle Canyon Golf Estate General Area Information
The Eagle Canyon Golf Estate has a unique history and originally comprised of around 16 smallholdings. After one of the residents discovered and began extracting decomposed granite from the area, the land was soon bought out by larger companies with mining rights. It was then turned into a large quarry for around forty or so years before residential property as such began to emerge, culminating into the luxurious Eagle Canyon so many Johannesburg real estate owners have come to appreciate today. Over the period that the land was mined, the area grew in both size and depth, essentially making it the perfect landscape for the ultimate links golf course and country estate.
Once the mine was close to depletion, around 2001, project manager Tom van der Merwe began enquiring about the land and the intended use for it. Around the same time, Tom was approached by a property lawyer, Mr Smiley Schoon, who was representing a Chinese developer with more than 15 years of experience and a dream to open a Lifestyle Golf Estate. Tom's vision of beautiful property in Eagle Canyon Golf Estate was quickly coming to realisation! Mr Liu, with the help of Tom van der Merwe, bought the land in 2002 and Eagle Canyon Golf Estate was founded. The name Eagle Canyon Golf Estate is derived from the nearby Roodekrans Black Eagle Project combined with the canyon atmosphere that the quarry creates!
