'The Southern King' - Fancourt, South Africa

Fancourt is situated in the heart of the Garden Route, one of the most picturesque areas in the world. The suitable named 200km-long stretch along the Southern Coast of South Africa offers beautiful and diverse flora and fauna, coupled with a mild Mediterranean like climate. Along with being the golfing Mecca of South Africa, the area offers a wide variety of things to do, from exploring meandering hiking trails to swimming, boating, and fishing in the surrounding ocean, lakes and rivers.
Positioned on 613 hectares in the magnificent Garden Route, just outside George, Fancourt is South Africa’s premier lifestyle estate with mountains, indigenous forests and the warm Indian Ocean in close proximity. 133 luxury rooms and suites, fantastic family facilities, three Gary Player designed golf courses, a Spa, a Kids Club and a variety of restaurants guarantee enjoyment.
The Links at Fancourt was added in 2000, an awe-inspiring example of magnificent design and golf-
course construction, about which designer Gary Player says: “I feel a genuine affinity for Fancourt having been involved from day one as a designer of the original golf courses, I experienced one of the greatest thrills of my golf career here when captaining the International Presidents Cup team against Jack Nicklaus’ American team, and it is the home of perhaps my greatest achievement as a golf course designer, The Links.”
Glorious swimming beaches are easily accessible and mountain biking, horse riding, picnics and hikes can be arranged on request. Sightseeing excursions in the picturesque coastal towns of Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Mossel Bay are well worth a visit.
