Fancourt is South Africa’s premier golf resort, with all three of our golf courses ranked in the Top 20 in South Africa (2011 Golf Digest rankings), The Links ranked No. 1, Montagu ranked 7, and Outeniqua ranked 18.
Since opening in the early 90's with just 27 Gary Player-designed holes, Fancourt’s Outeniqua and Montagu golf courses have matured and developed into two of the finest 18-hole parkland layouts in the country. A round on either is a special experience, sculpted and finished as they are, with rare attention to detail and designed with the coastal George winds in mind.
In addition, Fancourt has an exceptional golf academy that houses a state-of-the-art teaching facility, backed up by the expertise of PGA professionals. To keep golfers looking the part, there are two well-stocked pro shops, offering a wide variety of clothing, accessories and hardware.
