Golf courses

Links Course

Owner Dr. Hasso Plattner commissioned the legendary Gary Player to add the Links to Fancourt's existing layouts, and upon completion, the layout became an instant classic. Player's love of seaside golf spurred him to study his favourite coastal layouts of the UK and Ireland, and their influence is plainly visible. The demanding Links can be extended to a mighty 7,625 yards from the tees used for the 2003 Presidents Cup and the 2005 South African Open, but rest assured there are tees to suit the mere mortal. The Links is now one of the world's most celebrated courses, and is a ‘must play' for serious golfers.

Montagu Course

Fancourt's Montagu Course has in the past been ranked as South Africa's best, but with the inception of the Links in 2000, it appeared slightly dated. That is why the management implemented a thorough overhaul that involved major renovations, including the addition of two new holes. The resultant parkland layout - 7,385 yards - is once again celebrated in South Africa and beyond, and its spectacular holes will be remembered for a long time to come by fortunate Fancourt visitors.

Outeniqua Course

The Outeniqua takes its name from the dramatic mountain range that guards over the Fancourt estate, and was also conceived by Gary Player. Its character is similar to the neighbouring Montagu layout, with immaculate fairways and greens carved through the rugged dunes and expanses of water that characterise the landscape.

In addition to its comprehensive academy, these amazing courses are truly awe-inspiring, which is why golf holidays at Fancourt are so sought after.

Golfer reviews

A great place to stay
I travelled this year in Feb to South Africa and we stayed at the amazing Fancourt with my brother and his and my family all in there was 8 of us.

I never expected South Africa and Fancourt estate to be so stunning with the mountains surrounding the whole complex. It was truly a spectacular backdrop playing all the courses.

I think in my wildest dreams I will never play a better golf course than Fancourt Links! It was just unbelievable! I felt I was in an oil painting surrounded by dunes and mountains.

I have told all my friends at the club to experience what I have done and look forward to going back and possibly sampling Oubaai and Pinnacle Point which are just down the road from Fancourt.
