Course Description:

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  8th position on Golf Digest South Africa’s list of top golf courses in the country.

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.
