Golf & Accommodation Schedule

Golf Schedule

Humewood image

Enamored with the Old Course at St. Andrews, the architect Colonel S.V. Hotchkin set out to emulate the links layout when hired in 1929 to design Humewood. The Colonel put a twist on the familiar links of the British Isles, however, straying from the nine holes out, nine holes in routing and angling holes in every direction. This creates a fascinating experience atop the sand dunes of Algoa Bay, as golfers battle cross breezes, avoiding steep-faced bunkers and maneuvering along the firm turf.

Zimbali image

Designed by former British Open Champion, Tom Weiskopf. The course is both challenging and superbly beautiful, made more so by the proximity to the Indian Ocean. The course is spread over a large estate with dramatic elevation changes. Weiskopf did a tremendous job routing the holes through the jungle. There are several blind tee shots that could be unsettling to the first time visitor, however, Weiskopf ably allowed ample room in most fairways to enable the golfer to be in position to play the hole.

Durban image

In any golfer's books, Durban Country Club rates as one of the finest courses in the world, let alone Africa, or even South Africa. The course lies adjacent to the beach onto which the Indian Ocean gently pushes its waves, separated only by a freeway linking the Northern suburbs with the city. It has a merry mix of tall trees, thick bush, severe slopes, undulating fairways that sometimes resemble rolling waves, and some very clever tee positions, with the ever penalizing bunkers lying in wait.

Pearl Valley image

Set in the famous Franschhoek Wine region, this Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is a treat to play. Pearl Valley is considered one of the top conditioned courses. As with many Nicklaus courses, water on the right with plenty of sand, will keep the golfers minds off the wide landing areas provided. The course and it's geographical location allow for guests to enjoy a day outing in the Winelands with high quality golf to compliment the food and wine.

Leopard Creek image

Situated near Malelane in the heart of Mpumalanga, on the southern border of the Kruger National Park, Leopard Creek presents a rare opportunity to play an outstanding bushveld golf course. The 360 hectare development is bordered to the north and the west by the picturesque Crocodile River and the Kruger National Park. The course is remotely located and is therefore only recommended for clients looking to add a safari option in Southern Kruger or those using private air-charter services.

Fancourt - The Links image

Created from a previously flat piece of land, over 700,000 cubic metres of earth was moved to transform it into a typical Links style. The course presents undulating windswept terrain and dune-style landscape and is the only such course in South Africa. The Links presents a stern test in all weather conditions. This is a walking course with caddies, and is ranked 1 in South Africa. Host course of the 2003 Presidents Cup, 2005 Women's World Cup and 2006 South African Open.

Pinnacle Point image

The renowned architect Peter Matkovich put it best, describing the property at Pinnacle Point by saying, ‘this is the most dramatic golf course site I’ve ever encountered anywhere in the world.’ It’s difficult to argue with his assessment. Set high above the Indian Ocean, providing sensational, breathtaking views of the crystal blue water from across the course, this is truly a magnificent and memorable design. In all seven holes run parallel to the ocean shore. The home hole is a fierce risk-reward par-5.

Fancourt - The Montagu image

Designed by Gary Player and remodeled in 2004 by David McLay-Kidd (Bandon Dunes), the Montagu is one of South Africa's best parkland golf courses. With the highest levels of conditioning and true championship layout, this tree-lined and challenging course over rolling terrain leaves a positive lasting impression on all who play here. The 8th hole is a delightful par-3 measuring 182 yards, entirely over water. The Montagu at Fancourt sets the standards by which all other courses in South Africa are measured.

The interior of the hotel presents a kaleidoscope of impressions, from the European marble mosaic of the entrance court to the intricate parquet floor of the foyer framed by the full-scale drama of Table Mountain, with the activity of the harbour in the foreground. Below the foyer to the south, is the grand lounge with its cathedral ceiling and twin fireplaces. The Table Bay is situated adjacent to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront shopping and entertainment complex overlooking the Cape Town harbour and is five minutes from the city centre. A nearby dock, capable of accommodating an ocean liner, is at the threshold of the restaurant. The restaurant, has a private dining bay and Wine Cellar, and panoramic views of the mountain range and harbour. The hotel has a heated pool, well equipped gym and a health spa on site.



Azamara Quest, Journey and Pursuit

690 Guests | 410 Crew | 44 Suites

Azamara Cruises reinvented itself as Azamara Club Cruises in 2007 with the launch of sister ships Azamara Journey and Azamara Quest. A third vessel, Azamara Pursuit, made her maiden voyage in August of 2018 after an extensive four-month refurbishment in Belfast.  All three are nearly identical 690 guest ocean cruisers delivering President and CEO Larry Pimentel’s vision to offer a boutique cruise experience with fine dining, entertainment and country club-like ambience. The Azamara experience is built on four key pillars: destination immersion, extraordinary service, fine cuisine and wine, and wellness and vitality. Few cruise lines offer more overnight stays or as many last night departures so that you may experience each destination to its fullest.



Ship Facts

These three cruisers, with accommodations for 690 guests, offer a sophisticated, yet relaxing atmosphere. Guests will enjoy more inclusive amenities such as included gratuities for housekeeping, dining and bar staff; Spa and Wellness Center; complimentary bottled water and sodas, specialty coffee and teas, as well as complimentary boutique red and white wines to accompany luncheon and dinner; English Butler service for suite guests.

<Humewood

Enamored with the Old Course at St. Andrews, the architect Colonel S.V. Hotchkin set out to emulate the links layout when hired in 1929 to design Humewood. The Colonel put a twist on the familiar links of the British Isles, however, straying from the nine holes out, nine holes in routing and angling holes in every direction. This creates a fascinating experience atop the sand dunes of Algoa Bay, as golfers battle cross breezes, avoiding steep-faced bunkers and maneuvering along the firm turf.
image

<Zimbali

Designed by former British Open Champion, Tom Weiskopf. The course is both challenging and superbly beautiful, made more so by the proximity to the Indian Ocean. The course is spread over a large estate with dramatic elevation changes. Weiskopf did a tremendous job routing the holes through the jungle. There are several blind tee shots that could be unsettling to the first time visitor, however, Weiskopf ably allowed ample room in most fairways to enable the golfer to be in position to play the hole.
image

<Durban

In any golfer's books, Durban Country Club rates as one of the finest courses in the world, let alone Africa, or even South Africa. The course lies adjacent to the beach onto which the Indian Ocean gently pushes its waves, separated only by a freeway linking the Northern suburbs with the city. It has a merry mix of tall trees, thick bush, severe slopes, undulating fairways that sometimes resemble rolling waves, and some very clever tee positions, with the ever penalizing bunkers lying in wait.
image

<Pearl Valley

Set in the famous Franschhoek Wine region, this Jack Nicklaus Signature Course is a treat to play. Pearl Valley is considered one of the top conditioned courses. As with many Nicklaus courses, water on the right with plenty of sand, will keep the golfers minds off the wide landing areas provided. The course and it's geographical location allow for guests to enjoy a day outing in the Winelands with high quality golf to compliment the food and wine.
image

<Leopard Creek

Situated near Malelane in the heart of Mpumalanga, on the southern border of the Kruger National Park, Leopard Creek presents a rare opportunity to play an outstanding bushveld golf course. The 360 hectare development is bordered to the north and the west by the picturesque Crocodile River and the Kruger National Park. The course is remotely located and is therefore only recommended for clients looking to add a safari option in Southern Kruger or those using private air-charter services.

image

<Fancourt - The Links

Created from a previously flat piece of land, over 700,000 cubic metres of earth was moved to transform it into a typical Links style. The course presents undulating windswept terrain and dune-style landscape and is the only such course in South Africa. The Links presents a stern test in all weather conditions. This is a walking course with caddies, and is ranked 1 in South Africa. Host course of the 2003 Presidents Cup, 2005 Women's World Cup and 2006 South African Open.

image

<Pinnacle Point

The renowned architect Peter Matkovich put it best, describing the property at Pinnacle Point by saying, ‘this is the most dramatic golf course site I’ve ever encountered anywhere in the world.’ It’s difficult to argue with his assessment. Set high above the Indian Ocean, providing sensational, breathtaking views of the crystal blue water from across the course, this is truly a magnificent and memorable design. In all seven holes run parallel to the ocean shore. The home hole is a fierce risk-reward par-5.
image

<Fancourt - The Montagu

Designed by Gary Player and remodeled in 2004 by David McLay-Kidd (Bandon Dunes), the Montagu is one of South Africa's best parkland golf courses. With the highest levels of conditioning and true championship layout, this tree-lined and challenging course over rolling terrain leaves a positive lasting impression on all who play here. The 8th hole is a delightful par-3 measuring 182 yards, entirely over water. The Montagu at Fancourt sets the standards by which all other courses in South Africa are measured.

Important Information

Golf Handicap Limit: The golf courses we play around the world offer varying challenges. Players often require to be of a certain standard to properly and fully experience them in the company of likeminded fellow golfers. We therefore set a maximum permitted golf handicap to participate on our tours and cruises; The maximums are 28 for men and 36 for ladies.

Golf Courses: The included list may be subject to change in the event of any club accepting any conflicting national or international event, or for any other reason. Should such a situation occur, PerryGolf will endeavour to book a course of comparable standard, and all booked guests would be notified of the change and replacement venue at the earliest opportunity.

Transfers: No transfers are included to or from the ship at arrival/departure airports.
