Golf courses at Fancourt Hotel & Golf Estate
The Links Course
Measuring in at 7183 yards, this par-72 links course presents a unique golfing experience in a glorious, stunning setting at Fancourt. It is however one of the most difficult tests of golf in South Africa, so we recommend you carry more balls than usual and be patient. Luckily, this golf course provides some of the best caddies in the country to guide you round.
The Outeniqua is a majestic parkland layout at the Fancourt Resort. It is similar in character and design to its sibling, the Montagu, and its challenging design and fine conditioning will ensure an excellent test for golfers of all standards. As with all three of the Fancourt golf courses, there are a variety of tees ensuring that no golfer feels overpowered by the course.
Designed by Gary Player, the majestic parkland Montagu Golf Course is one of the best conditioned in South Africa and has regularly been ranked as the top golf course in the country. This cleverly designed layout has generous Kikuyu fairways and fast grass greens similar to the golf courses favoured by the US Tour.
