Fancourt offers three originally designed Gary Player golf courses - including The Links, which Gary Player has often referred to as his greatest design feat. The Links, Montagu & Outeniqua golf courses are all ranked in the Top 20 in South Africa. The Links is listed in 30th place by the Golf Digest magazine (US Conde Nast publication) in their Top 100 courses outside of the US.
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 TaylorMade Fitment Centre and state-of-the-art teaching facilities, 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.
Montagu, named after the Montagu pass was originally designed by Gary Player and is a much celebrated parkland course and has been ranked as the number-one golf course in South Africa in the past and is currently ranked as No. 6 Best Conditioned (Golf Digest Rankings 2012).
The exquisitely conditioned Montagu is at the heart of Fancourt, with its glorious parkland layout, covering large tracts of varying terrain on rolling land. It’s beauty is enhanced by mature trees, flower beds, shrubs and water hazards that provide a colourful contrast to the landscape.
The warm-up area, featuring a full-length range and a chipping and bunker practice area, is available to all golfers before play.
Golf carts are available for hire, weather permitting.
