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. In 2014, 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 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.
Outeniqua, named after the mountain range that overlooks the area has a different look than the Montagu, so they complement each other perfectly as varying playing experiences.
The Outeniqua is regarded as the easier course of the two, being more open in appearance, yet it has its share of challenges and risk-and-reward moments. Water hazards or streams come into play on as many as 11 of the holes, including 4 of the last 5.
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.
In 2014 the Outeniqua was ranked No. 17 in South African by Golf Digest SA.
