Your Itinerary

A combination of Olde Worlde charm and contemporary luxuries is what makes the Fancourt Hotel so distinctive. Fancourt's central location in the heart of the Garden Route makes it a perfect place from which to explore this most beautiful of regions. At Fancourt, guests can choose between a room in the beautifully restored 19th Century Manor House or one of the stately Garden Suites and Studios. The 3 courses at Fancourt are accessible to Fancourt members and hotel guests only, making it one of the most exclusive golf properties in South Africa.

<Day 3 ~ Fancourt Hotel

Today play Fancourt - The Outeniqua (tbc). Beautifully maintained, the Outiniqua course is a parkland design of the highest quality. Often referred to as the 2nd Fancourt Course, Outiniqua can easily stand alone as a wonderful golf outing. Although the course moves through a fair amount of housing, it is well set back and carefully hidden with the use of flower beds, trees and well placed water hazards.

<Day 4 ~ Fancourt Hotel

Today play Fancourt - The Montagu (tbc). Designed by Gary Player and remodeled in 2004 by David McKlay-Kidd (Bandon Dunes), the Montagu is South Africa's best parkland golf course. With the highest levels of conditioning and true championship layout, The Montagu at Fancourt sets the standards by which all other courses in South Africa are measured.

<Day 5 ~ Pinnacle Point Golf Estate

Today play Pinnacle Point (tbc). Magnificently perched atop staggering cliffs, this windswept course three hours east of Cape Town and a half hour south of George marks a major addition to South Africa’s already world-class golf scene. Six of the holes play across deep chasms to greens that seem to float in the Indian Ocean. The yawning ravines and distant horizons can make 150-yard shots look like twice that length. On the par-four eighth, tee and green sit on opposing bluffs; big hitters can attempt an all-or-nothing carry with the hope of having an easy wedge in, or play it safe by bailing out left and facing a much longer approach. Throughout the layout, the architects wisely designed large, fairly flat greens that yield plenty of sensible pin placements and give golfers who have run a gauntlet just to get to the green a bit of a break. (cart fee included)

<Day 6 ~ Fancourt Hotel

Today play Fancourt - The Links (tbc). Ranked  #1 in South Africa.Created from a previously flat piece of land, over 700 000 cubic metres of earth was moved in transforming 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. Every hole has received detailed attention to ensure that the overall balance in terms of length, position of hazards and shot values are in harmony. As a result, The Links presents a stern test in all weather conditions. This is a walking course with caddies.Host course of the 2003 Presidents Cup, 2005 Women's World Cup and 2006 South African Open.  Carts and caddies are available.

Sightseeing Suggestion: The Garden Route and Little Karoo's natural assets will have you question ever wanting to leave this idyllic spot! The Garden Route and Little Karoo spans from Witsands whale birthing haven in the West to Plettenberg Bays beach, polo and party-going pleasures in the East. Then there’s the arid geological basin along the interior, wedged between the fynbos-rich Heidelberg in the west and Uniondales eastern sheep farming and rock art treasures. It's all about an abundance of blue skies, white sand beaches, rolling oceans, mountain scenery, indigenous fynbos, ostrich antics and local hospitality. A place where you can travel along routes where you are often alone on the open road or make for the malls and beaches Golden vineyards, sun-drenched orchards, pin-drop-silent forests, sweeping lakes and birds eye view passes add to the mix.

Golf Schedule

Fancourt - The Outeniqua image

Beautifully maintained, the Outiniqua course is a parkland design of the highest quality. Often referred to as the 2nd Fancourt Course, Outiniqua can easily stand alone as a wonderful golf outing. Perhaps slightly easier than the Montagu, it’s not to be taken lightly as water hazards factor into 11 holes. Although the course moves through a fair amount of housing, it is well set back and carefully hidden with the use of flower beds, trees and well placed water hazards.
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.
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 Links image

The Links, a privately owned club that sits alongside Fancourt, is the No. 1 ranked course in South Africa and is included in the Top 100 courses outside the USA. Over 700,000 cubic metres of earth were moved to transform the old George Airport into an incredible Links style course. The course presents undulating windswept terrain and dune-style landscape that is always in immaculate condition. The Links presents a stern test in all weather conditions. It is the Host course of the 2003 Presidents Cup, 2005 Women's World Cup and 2006 South African Open along with other European Tour events.
