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.
Kindly Note: The Outeniqua Golf Course will be closed for re-surfacing from 21 May to 16 September 2012.
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.
