Fancourt Golf Courses

For keen golfers, Fancourt needs no introduction. There are three Gary Player designed golf courses that all ranked in the Top 20 in South Africa as well as a Golf Academy.

Skip to Golf Packages

Montagu Golf Course

Fancourt’s Montagu Golf Course, originally designed by Gary Player, has earned a world-class reputation as one of the finest 18-hole parkland layouts. It holds the prestigious 5th position on South Africa’s Top 100 Courses. Golfers can expect a challenging, yet highly enjoyable golfing experience surrounded by the natural beauty of the Fancourt estate.

This tree-lined course covers large tracts of varying terrain across an undulating indigenous landscape. A detailed stroke saver takes golfers through the course, providing distance measurements and images that assist players with navigating the course. A warm-up area, featuring a full-length range and a chipping and bunker practice area, is available to golfers before play. Golf carts are available for hire, weather permitting.

Montagu Golf Course

Outeniqua

Ranked 20th by South Africa’s Top 100 Courses experts, Fancourt’s Outeniqua golf course offers a leisurely and entertaining golfing experience. It provides a more forgiving terrain than its counterpart, the Montagu, but offers its fair share of challenges to keep golfers interested.

Also designed by Gary Player and named after the Outeniqua Mountains, the course can comfortably accommodate a large field of golfers. A detailed stroke saver takes golfers through the course, providing distance measurements and images that assist players with navigating the course. A warm-up area, featuring a full-length range and a chipping and bunker practice area, is available to golfers before play. Golf carts are available for hire, weather permitting.

The Links At Fancourt (A Privately Owned Club)

Sculpted into what Gary Player has described as his greatest feat as a course designer, The Links is the golfing hallmark of the Fancourt estate. Featuring an undulating, windswept terrain and dune-style landscape, the course is the collaborative handiwork of golfing icon, Gary Player, course designer, Phil Jacobs, and Fancourt’s owner, Dr. Hasso Plattner. The Links is currently voted number one in the country by Golf Digest South Africa.

South Africa best golf course
The Links Golf Course

Bramble Hill

Bramble Hill is also designed by Gary Player Design Co. and is Fancourt’s shortest offering with 6 holes. Although not as pedigreed as Outeniqua, Montagu, and The Links, it does contain some of the same DNA.

It has a furrowed terrain with undulating fairways and pot bunkers. Like The Links, the greens are elevated and full of mischievous inclines and hollows. The very short par-3 5th provides a good opportunity to gaze across the course, with the picturesque Outeniqua mountains providing a breathtaking backdrop.

For the closing 6th hole, Bramble Hill mimics the parkland persona of Montagu and Outeniqua Courses. This hole, whilst not quite as imposing but good enough to ensure a testing finish at one of its most idiosyncratic holes.

The course offers 3 Par 3’s, 2 Par 4’s, and 1 Par 5, with Par 3 tee boxes on the 2 par 4’s and the par 5, making a number of options playable.

The Academy at Fancourt

At The Academy, the latest cutting-edge technology is used to assess and improve your golfing skills. The Academy offers carefully structured golf lessons, with PGA Professionals, keeping methods simple to facilitate your learning and improve your golf game.

The Spa at Fancourt

The Spa at Fancourt has an indoor heated Roman Bath and world-class wellness treatments. Everything is inspired by the harmony of the four elements: air, water, fire, and earth. All facilities and treatments echo this inspiration, leaving you feeling truly grounded.

Choose from a range of holistic skin and body treatments. Make use of the complimentary facilities such as the Roman Bath and Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, and tepidarium.

Expert therapists soothe aching muscles with a variety of body therapies, including deep tissue massages and reflexology. Beauty treatments such as facials, manicures, and pedicures complete your wellness experience.

As is to be expected, every guest is catered for. Eight to 15-year olds can enjoy special youth treatments. Couples can opt for a private treatment room, a hydrotherapy room, and a shower room for a relaxed and romantic atmosphere for two.

Wining and Dining

Four top restaurants each offer a distinctive dining experience to appeal to every palate.

At Fancourt, the appreciation of good food and wine is regarded almost as high as the game of golf. As such, the estate’s two restaurants each cater to a different occasion, from relaxed family suppers to more bespoke experiences with fine wines to match. Dress Code: Smart casual in all restaurants.
