Golf estate developments are seen as liabilities in the building industry with
regards to damage to the environment, waste of water, destruction of
natural heritage and as communities created only for the rich.
The objective of this treatise is to identify various ways to solve problems
surrounding golf estate development, especially with regards to water
use/waste and environmental impacts, plus identifying other institutions
(mining, informal settlements) that cause more damage to natural heritage
and environment than golf estates. Another aspect discussed is the
security factor supplied to people living in golf estates. It is said because of
South Africa’s high crime rate golf estates are a big success and cater only
for the rich.
