Widely regarded as one of the country’s top golf estates, Fancourt is that and so much more with some surprisingly friendly options for families looking to take advantage of the luxury estate.
Of course, the golf is still the prime reason guests come to Fancourt, with the estate boasting world class facilities and three award-winning courses.
Considered one of South Africa’s best golf courses, and designed by SA legend Gary Player, the Montagu course at Fancourt offers a typical parklands format. The Par 72 course is only available to members, their guests, and those staying at the resort, making it an exclusive experience for those playing. Facilities are world class and include a warm-up and practice area featuring a full-length range, as well as a chipping and bunker practice area.
Providing golfers with a more forgiving playing experience than Montagu, the Outeniqua course has been voted the 14th best course in SA by Golf Digest, and with good reason. Another Playere-designed course, it is in pristine condition with views of the mountains that it was named after throughout.
Ranked the number one course in the country, The Links has hosted some of the most prestigious tournaments in the world, including the SA Open and President’s Cup. Inpired by famous links course in the British Isles, this course is the showpiece of Fancourt and has been played by some of the world’s greatest golfers, including Ernie Els, Justin Rose and Retief Goosen.
Fancourt is also ideal for families, with the Teen Lounge and the Kidz Club sure to keep the kids occupied, while their parents take advantage of the golf and spa facilities at the estate. The Teen Lounge is equipped with gaming facilities, table tennis, table football, and a pool table, while the Kidz Club at the Leisure Centre offers fully supervised activities for children aged 3-10.
Location ripe for exploring
The location of Fancourt also means the surrounding area is perfect for exploration with a huge amount of activities in close proximity. From strawberry pickling and a giant maze at The Red Berry Farm to bungee-jumping off the Bloukraans Bridge, the towns of George, Knysna and Mossel Bay all within driving distance.
