Atlantic Beach

Following on the success of the development of Steenberg Estate the developer Johnnic commissioned Allen Usher to find land in the greater Cape Town metropole for the development of another golf estate. Usher approached the Rabie Property Group who had acquired such land from the City Council in Melkbosstrand.  In February 1997 Rabie agreed to sell the land to Johnnic and the planning stages of the golf estate was implemented and so Atlantic Beach Golf Estate was born. Usher’s property company was appointed to market the estate and sales of the freehold erven in the first village of the golf estate commenced in 1998.

In 2002 the Johnnic group was unbundled and decided to sell off its property development interests including Atlantic Beach which was only half developed. The development rights were sold to Skeena Trading company – a consortium led by the Rabie Group. By 2005 Skeena had completed the development and Allen Usher and the then General Manager of the golf club Bill Taylor acquired Skeena and in so doing acquired ownership of the golf club.

Management of the estate was handed over to the Homeowners Association and Atlantic Beach Property Sales continues to market resales in this Atlantic Beach which is considered one of the most successful golf estates in South Africa, with 857 residential properties sold out in record time.
