Fancourt South Africa
Since opening in the early 1990's, Fancourt has developed at an incredible pace, and is now firmly entrenched in the elite of world golf resorts. Only 7 kilometres from the George Airport, and situated right in the heart of the Garden Route, Fancourt couldn't be more perfectly located to enjoy a world-class golfing holiday.
Gary Player's 27 holes were the foundations of the golf resort at its inauguration and Fancourt now boasts 3 first class championship courses making the estate's golf complex the envy of the African continent. The headline golf course at Fancourt is The Links, which has previously hosted European Tour events and rightfully so earned its spot as the number 1 ranked golf course in South Africa. The 2 remaining courses, the Montagu and Outeniqua, still boast a high ranking within South Africa, presenting two stunning parkland layouts to enjoy for all golfers.

Golf Courses at Fancourt South Africa
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.
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.
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.

Excellent location with great golf courses and friendly and helpful staff

Not the No1 ranked course in South Africa for nothing. A superb course and a really tough test - even more so in driving rain and howling winds as we faced (the previous day was supposedly too hot!) Caddies a real must and excellent assistance provided. Its long and tough but very satisfying to get round!
Harder than Outeniqua and a real test of golf - a great challenge and a pure pleasure to play on Xmas Day with a bottle of champagne in the cooler!!
Lovely course to cut our teeth on - still a good test of golf though!
Lovely course and once we got through a fourball a nice and fast round
