Fancourt has become a global landmark for business, leisure and golfing travel but its gradual expansion can be traced back to the establishment of the Manor House by its first custodian, Henry Fancourt White.
South Africa’s premier leisure resort is situated in the heart of the Garden Route, seven kilometres from the George Airport. The resort is superbly landscaped on 613 hectares of lush countryside with the majestic Outeniqua Mountains as the perfect backdrop. Offering guests extraordinary leisure experiences, the resort is well suited to discerning travellers, avid golfers and families.
The resort has three accommodation offerings:
- Fancourt Hotel – 5 star hotel with 115 rooms
- The Manor House – a 5 star boutique hotel with eighteen suites including a Master Bedroom all offering personalized, butler-style service.
- Self-catering options are also available on the resort in the privately owned lodges.
World renowned for its golf experience, Fancourt has three 18-hole golf courses (Montagu, Outeniqua and The Links) situated on the resort and all ranked in the Top 20 in South Africa. The Links is currently No. 1 in South Africa (Golf Digest Rankings 2016/17) and was ranked 43rd in the world in 2015 by Golf Digest USA.
In addition, Fancourt has an exceptional golf academy with state-of-the-art teaching facilities, backed up by the expertise of PGA professionals.
Leisure activities on the resort include a Spa with an indoor heated Roman Bath, Kids Club, teen lounge, gymnasium, indoor-heated and outdoor swimming pools. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy running/walking/cycling trails, bird watching and fishing on the estate or can venture out to the nearby Witfontein Nature Reserve situated on the foothills of the Outeniqua mountain range for hiking, mountain biking or trail running. We also have four beautifully located tennis courts of which two are flood lit for your evening or early morning enjoyment.
Several restaurants and dining venues are available on-site to suit a variety of tastes and appetites. Glorious swimming beaches are easily accessible and mountain biking, horse riding, picnics and hikes can be arranged on request. Sightseeing excursions to the picturesque coastal towns of Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Mossel Bay or Klein Karoo towns of Oudtshoorn, Prince Albert or Calitzdorp can be arranged by our on-site tours and travel desk.
