Golf

Fancourt is South Africa’s premier golf resort, with all three of our golf courses ranked in the Top 20 in South Africa (2014/15 Golf Digest  SA rankings).  The Links is ranked No. 1 in South Africa by Golf Digest SA and No. 34 in the world by the USA Golf Digest.  The Montagu is ranked No. 6 and the Outeniqua No. 17 by Golf Digest, SA.

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.

Garden Route Experience

The Garden Route with its panoramic views and diverse flora and fauna is known as South Africas Golfing Mecca.  The diversity of the golf offering in this area ranging from extreme coastline courses situated on the cliff edges of the Southern Cape coast, to pristine Parklands courses and the number 1 ranked Golf Course The Links at Fancourt, makes the golf experience in the Garden Route truly special.

Courses within a 100km radius of Fancourt include Pinacle Point and Mossel Bay Golf Club (in Mossel Bay), Kingswood, Ou Baai and George Golf Club (in George), Simola, Pezula and Knysna Golf Club (in Knysna) and Plettenberg Bay Golf Club (in Plettenberg Bay). A little bit further up the Garden Route you will find St Francis Links .
