Golfing in the Garden Route
The Golf Mecca of South Africa
George is fast becoming known as the Golf Mecca of South Africa. With two state of the art golf courses, Fancourt Golf Estate and Oubaai Golf Estate, if you are a golf lover, be sure to add George onto your itinerary.
Oubaai Golf Course has the ‘links’ feel and it comes complete with some spectacular scenery like the 17th hole.
Fancourt combines a flawless fusion of leisure and world-class golfing. With all three of its golf courses ranked among Golf Digest’s top 20 courses in the country, it boasts a proud legacy of sporting excellence. The Links is currently No. 1 in South Africa (Golf Digest Rankings 2014/15) and was ranked 34th in the world in 2014 by Golf Digest USA. The Montagu and Outeniqua golf courses are both ranked in the Top 20 in South Africa. Fancourt’s golf courses were designed by a dynamic team spearheaded by Gary Player and the estate’s owner, Dr Hasso Plattner. Recently voted among the World’s 10 Best Golf Resorts on CNNGo, Fancourt has supplemented its courses with its own Golf Academy, practice facilities and every modern convenience, allowing golfers to immerse themselves in the five-star Fancourt experience.
