Hartbeespoort Athletic Club

Was Established 4 September 1984 to suffice in the need of the Hartbeespoortdam community for an athletic club.

Hartbeespoort Dam – Place of Beauty and Pleasure

The Hartbeespoort Dam, surrounded by the majesty of the Magaliesberg mountain range, is a popular destination for weekend getaways or day trips. Hartbeespoort, the name of the dam means “pass of the hartbees” (a species of antelope) in Afrikaans.

The town of Hartbeespoort lies right on the banks of the Hartbeespoort Dam, basking in the sunlight on the slopes of the Magaliesberg and comprises the villages of Schoemansville, Kosmos, Melodie, Ifafi and Meerhof. Hartbeespoort was previously known as Schoemansville, named after General Hendrik Schoeman.
