One of the most requested destinations for a South African golf holiday – a vacation staying at the country’s premiere golfing estate, Fancourt. Enjoy 7 nights accommodation at this mecca of golf on a Bed and Breakfast basis with 6 rounds included.
Day 1: Departure Day
Your South African golf holiday departs on the evening, overnight flight. For this itinerary you will fly direct to Johannesburg.
Day 2: Johannesburg – Fancourt
On arrival into Johannesburg you will need to clear immigration and customs before catching the short connecting flight onto George. Arrive at George Airport and you will collect your Group B Europcar hire car, then drive the short distance to nearby Fancourt. Check into the Fancourt Hotel and then spend the rest of the day relaxing by the pool or exploring the facilities including the Spa, tennis courts, restaurants and swimming pools.
Over the next six days we will arrange rounds of golf for you on the three Fancourt courses, or you can venture further afield to try some of the other stunning local courses such as Oubaai, Simola, Pinnacle Point or Pezula. At Fancourt you have the choice of playing the Montagu, Outeniqua or the stunning Links Course which is ranked as the No.1 course in South Africa.
Aside from golf, Fancourt is a great base to explore the nearby towns of Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Oudtshoorn. You also have a number of unspoilt beaches to choose from, all within a short drive from the estate.
The Garden Route’s coastline is also famous with whale watchers across the globe. Witness these gracious giants from land, or by sea on an adventure packed ocean safari from nearby Plettenberg Bay. (July-Nov only) If that sounds too much like hard work, enjoy a relaxing afternoon and some wine tasting at one of the nearby boutique vineyards.
Fancourt has four restaurants to choose from on the estate, or just a short drive away are the nearby towns of George and Knysna, the latter with its quay side restaurants serving fresh seafood. Wherever you go, you will be spoilt for choice.
Day 8: Departure Day
On your last day return your hire car to George Airport and then catch your flight back to Johannesburg or Cape Town and onwards connecting flight home.

ReviewsIn our opinion: Fancourt is a must-play destination for anyone contemplating a golf holiday on the Garden Route. The hotel and facilities are second to none. It is no longer necessary to stay at Fancourt in order to enjoy golf on the 2 most popular courses, but if you would like to play the Links Course, then a 2 night minimum stay at the hotel is required.
