The Fancourt Montagu Golf Course is a pristine Parklands course in the heart of the enchanting Garden Route that adds well-appointed value to the esteemed Fancourt name. 18 holes are spread over a lush paradise of evergreen verdure and spangled blue pools, fringed by the fynbos-dappled slopes of the Outeniqua Mountains. Montagu offers an exclusive golfing experience as play is restricted to residents of the hotel and estate.
The course is named after the Montagu Pass, which snakes through the Outeniqua Mountains between George and the small hamlet of Herold. The pass itself was named after John Montagu, the colonial secretary of the Cape in the 1840s, and was designed by Australian road engineer Henry Fancourt White, after whom the estate is named.
Originally developed by renowned South African golfer Gary Player, the Fancourt Montagu Golf Course recently underwent a handsome face-lift by Scottish golf course architect David McLay Kidd. The 1st and 9th holes were completely remodeled, providing an updated and enhanced experience of this first-rate course. In 2014, the course was ranked 6th by the country by Golf Digest SA. Montagu is considered one of the best conditioned courses in the country and will enrich your South African golf holiday.
