DESTINATION THE GARDEN ROUTE The Garden Route is a beautiful destination to visit. Stretching from Mossel Bay to Storms River and encompassing the towns of Knysna, Oudtshoorn, George, Plettenberg Bay, Sedgefield and Wilderness – this is a coastal wonder land with many fantastic things to see and do. It is called the Garden Route because of the spectacular flora and fauna that surrounds the coast line. There are many interesting things to do on the Garden Route including whale watching, cave exploration, elephant interactions, game drives, mountain passes, beaches, great restaurants and of course excellent golf at Fancourt, Pezula, Oubaai, Simola and Pinnacle Point. In this region, with it’s diverse offering of activities, there is something for everyone. Some activities on the Garden Route include a visit the “Ostrich Capital” in the town of Oudtshoorn, followed by an excursion to the world famous Cango Caves, visit to the Oyster Factory, or a private cruise on the Knysna Lagoon.
DESTINATION BIG 5 SAFARI EXPERIENCE Rise at sunrise to head into the wild on your private African safari with your Field Guide and Tracker and discover a world usually only reserved for your screen during ‘Animal Planet’. You’ll find yourself in an environment that is as old as time, where the rhythm of nature is the only Governor. Two safaris take place each day – in the morning and late afternoon (moving into the early evening). This is when the wildlife is most active, and the temperature more moderate. Walking Safari - The bush takes on a completely different perspective when you are on foot. Each of your senses will be on full alert as you feel the grass and stones beneath your feet; touch the leathery leaves of trees you walk beneath; smell the musky scent of wild animals in the vicinity; taste the sweet grass of the veld; and hear the crack of a branch indicating you are not alone. Walks generally take place after breakfast and last approximately 1½ to 2 hours, depending on the fitness level of guests. In summer, due to the heat, walks may be incorporated into the morning game drive before heading back to the lodge for breakfast.
DESTINATION CAPE TOWN Mother Nature surpassed herself when crafting the Mother City. Perched between the ocean and the mountain, with a national park at its heart, there is nowhere like Cape Town. Affectionately referred to as The Mother City, Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years. It is in Cape Town that the Rainbow Nation really covers the spectrum. Between beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, traditional dancers with painted faces performing in the streets, the smell of spicy Malay cooking and the taste of a well-made wine, this city will fill your senses. Cape Town boasts the top tourism attractions in South Africa, all of which should appear on every visitors itinerary all year round, namely Table Mountain, the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, Robben Island, The penguins at Boulders Beach, Cape Point – The Cape of Good Hope.

The Montagu course is a much celebrated parkland course and has been ranked as the number-one golf course in South Africa in the past. Play is restricted to members, their guests and hotel guests, so there is ample time and space to savour the Fancourt golfing experience. Fancourt also boasts a world class Golf Academy, with outstanding practise and warm-up facilities.
GOLF COURSE OUTENIQUA GOLF COURSE – FANCOURT The Fancourt Outeniqua Golf Course as part of South Africa’s premier golfing destination lies at the foot of the majestic Outeniqua Mountain in the heart of the world-famous Garden Route district. This beautifully manicured 18-hole parkland course is a course of rare distinction, similar to its sibling the Montagu course with top of the range conditioning and a setting that takes in mountains, water and wildlife. This majestic 18-hole Parkland layout at Fancourt was designed by legendary Grand Slam golfer Gary Player. The Outeniqua course is similar to its sibling course The Montagu in terms of character, its challenging design and fine conditioning which will ensure an excellent test for all levels of golfers.
GOLF COURSE GEORGE GOLF CLUB George Golf Club is a wonderful parkland course based in the heart of the Garden Route. Set at the foot of the Outeniqua mountains, the course is lush and beautifully manicured with well established trees, natural vegetation and bent grass greens. Prior to the establishment of Golf Estates all over South Africa, George Golf Club was consistently ranked in the top 10 golf courses in the country, and remains a firm favourite for local and international golfers.
GOLF COURSE PINNACLE POINT GOLF COURSE The Pinnacle Point Golf Course is something truly unique for the discerning golfer. This 18 hole championship golf course was designed by well-known South African golf course architect Peter Matkovich who opened the course together with top Irish Tour Professional Darren Clarke in November 2006. Darren Clarke, who was also involved with many aspects of the Pinnacle Point course design, has said that Pinnacle Point is “... the best golf course on the planet.” This Cliff top Fynbos Golf Course inspires the golfer to play this challenging layout with a level of respect due to its dramatic views and breath-taking terrain. The 72 par layout is characterised by 7 majestic holes that line the Indian Ocean rock cliffs, four of which are played over ocean and cliff.
GOLF COURSE ERINVALE GOLF CLUB Erinvale Golf Club, nestled at the foothills of the Helderberg and Hottentot Holland mountains in Somerset West near Cape Town is one of South Africa’s great golfing challenges. Situated in a beautiful Western Cape wine region the breathtaking mountain and sea views are an integral part of this unforgettable golfing experience. The Gary Player-designed golf course was host to the 1996 World Cup of Golf and has fast become renowned both locally and abroad. Erinvale Golf Club’s beautifully manicured par 72 championship course boasts some of the country’s most challenging and spectacular holes. This is a course with two distinctly different nines. The demanding front nine meanders through park-like terrain and the back nine provides a contrasting challenge winding its way through the foothills of the mountains with panoramic views of False Bay. The signature hole is the par-four 17th hole, a great finishing hole that swoops downhill and is an extreme test of nerves playing from an elevated tee towards a long and narrow green.
GOLF COURSE WESTLAKE GOLF CLUB Set in the tree lined suburbs of Cape Town at the base of the Silvermine Mountains, Westlake Golf Course has, over its many illustrious years, gained reputation as one of the Cape’s finest courses. The many doglegs and towering trees, add incredible beauty and depth to the easy-to-walk 18 hole, par 72. The natural beauty and wildlife that the surrounding mountains have added provides an element that most city suburb golf courses could only dream of. The club has a vibrant atmosphere, and is a great venue to enjoy a drink with the local members after your round.
