Spend three days playing golf at Fancourt, one of South Africa’s premier golf resorts featuring three highly rated Championship golf courses, where play is restricted to Members, their guests and hotel guests. Since opening in the early 90's with just 27 Gary Player-designed holes, Fancourt’s Outeniqua and Montagu golf courses have matured and developed into two of the finest 18-hole parkland layouts in the country. A round on either is a special experience, sculpted and finished as they are, with rare attention to detail and designed with the coastal George winds in mind.

The Links course at Fancourt was added in 2000, an awe-inspiring example of magnificent design and golf-course construction, about which designer Gary Player says: “Links golf is how the game originated and at The Links we take golfers back to the roots of golf – and they can play a ‘British Open’ all of their own!” We have included green fees for 3 x 18 holes of golf at Fancourt; at Montagu and at Outeniqua golf courses (rated 7th and 18th respectively). Golfers wanting to play the Links Course (rated 1stin South Africa) will have to pay a supplement.  (This is subject to availability).
Overnight:  Fancourt,George.  (B)

Today, drive to Mossel Bay for a taxing 18 holes of golf at Pinnacle Point, a demanding course.  This is a hilly course and golf carts are included in your green fees.  The golf course stretches along four kilometers of spectacular coastline and boasts dramatic cliff-side holes and over 1000 acres of unspoiled beachfront. Peter Matkovich, the golf architect responsible for many of South Africa's premier golf courses including Arabella, Leopard Rock and Steenberg, has described Pinnacle Point as "the most dramatic golf course site I've ever encountered anywhere in the world”. This course is currently rated as the 16th best golf course in South Africa.  After golf, drive to Knysna and check in at Simola Hotel.
Overnight: Simola Hotel, Country Club & Spa.  (B)

Day 6:
Your lodge is located on the golf course, so no need for a car today!

Stop onto Simola Golf Course, rated 17th best, and also rated the 6th best conditioned golf course in South Africa. The views around the course are awe-inspiring and it is easy to see why Simola takes its place as one of South Africa's premier golfing destinations. It's also the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course on the Garden Route, reflecting the maestro's philosophy of attuning the layout and design to the natural lie of the land.  The course offers challenging and rewarding golf amidst spectacular scenery. Set below the high ridges, it’s free from the wind that so often plagues coastal courses. Fairways flow with the natural undulating contours of the terrain and the unusual configuration of five par 5's and five par 3's add a new dimension to the game. It's par for the course that every hole boasts exceptional views; either out across the Knysna Lagoon all the way to the Heads or over the picturesque Knysna River as it twists and turns through the valley below. Your golf cart and “Halfway House” is included in the tour costs.
Overnight: Simola Hotel, Country Club & Spa. (B)

Today, golf at another prime South African golf course:  Pezula.  This stunningly beautiful golf course is a sweeping spectacle of fairways and greens rolling through the pristine southern Cape landscape. The breathtaking, award-winning 18-hole golf course, designed by David Dale and Ronald Fream of Golf Plan USA, offers visitors who wish to play the ultimate golf course in Knysna, an unsurpassed golf experience, and rates amongst the best and the most scenic golf courses in the world. In 2001, just a few months after it opened, the course was awarded Best New Golf Course in South Africa.

In February 2005 Compleat Golfer rated it a Five Star Golf Experience. It was also awarded:

Ø  Top Three 'Most Outstanding Golf Resort Worldwide' - 2008 VIP International Traveller Reader’s Award

Ø  Best South African Golf Development - Homes Overseas Awards London 2006
