There is no better place to
experience the four seasons of Mother Nature, than on
the Pilgrim's Rest golf course. This beautifully
manicured 9-hole course in exquisite and peaceful
surroundings on the banks of small stream, is situated
just out of town on the R533 road to Lydenburg.
magnificent sandstone clubhouse was once a school in
Rustenburg (about 500km away in the North West
province). Each stone was carefully numbered
when it was dismantled, before it was transported and
re-erected in Pilgrim's Rest in 1985.
The Friends of the
Pilgrim's Rest Museum offer an educational, 5-hour,
interactive tour for all ages. Three guides, in
character and period costumes, take you through a day
in the life of Gold prospectors in the 1800's.
The tour starts at the Diggings
museum site with a welcome drink and informal
lecture on the Pilgrim's Rest gold rush.
Experience life as a "digger" by panning for your own
gold (and you get to keep the 24-carat gold "bits").
Finish your gold panning with a well deserved drink
and receive a commemorative certificate.
The tour then moves on to "Alanglade",
the Mine manager's residence, where you will get a
glimpse of the daily family life and history of the
Barry family. The tour concludes with a relaxing
game of croquet on the front lawn. An optional
picnic lunch is available on request. Prior
