Golfing the Garden Route

The ultimate golf experience in dazzling surroundings

The essence of golfing on the Garden Route

Recognised for the finest golf estates in the country, the Garden Route in the Western Cape is one of the most sought-after destinations, with excellent golf courses that simply must be played. Topping the list is Fancourt in George, one of South Africa’s top golfing estates, boasting three world-class courses: the Links, Montague and Outeniqua. The Links is arguably South Africa’s number one course and the Montagu and Outeniqua are both ranked in the Top 20 in South Africa. Modelled on the golf courses in Scotland, Fancourt received design input from Gary Player.

A 10-minute drive from George Airport, Oubaai Golf Club is the first Ernie Else signature course in South Africa. Exquisite scenery of the Outeniqua Mountains are a perfect backdrop to your tee off.

Knysna is a haven of fine golf courses including Simola Estate, which boasts a Jack Nicklaus signature course and 18 of the best holes you will ever play are located here. Pezula Championship Golf Course is the jewel of the Garden Route and is a remarkable vision of fairways and greens rolling through the Southern Cape landscape. Plettenberg Bay Country Club and Goose Valley Golf Club are other fantastic courses worth trying out in the area.
