This was a lovely hotel and golf centre. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms spacious and very comfortable. Staff were very friendly, both in the Reception, bar and restaurant. Food was superb. One of the nicest stays we have had anywhere in the world. Special mention to the hotel Manager who took his time to speak to us.

It is not often that we want to return to a place, because there are so many great places to visit but Fancourt is one of them. We played the Montagu course twice and the Outeniqua once - sadly, our game on The Links was canceled due to poor weather, hence why we will return. We had booked our tee... More

Played the Outeniqua course - very slowly. A five & a half round when playing with Caddies/buggies is totally unacceptable. Fancourt is another establishment, which is happy to charge a premium price but does not deliver a quality experience. From looking across the course it was easy to spot where the problem lay but no Marshals to be seen. Pace... More

Good morning, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. Would it be possible to give me the date that this occurred as I would to address this with the marshal on duty? Pace of play is most certainly a thorny issue and is something we are painfully aware of, and feedback like yours does help us... More

I have been in SA over a month now, touring up & down, & I had 2 nights at FanCourt. What I found here was a place where the rooms were spotless & roomy. The staff couldn't help you enough, & the food, although not gourmet, was still pretty good! Now for the sole purpose of me being here, the... More

Good afternoon, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and your kind words related to our golf courses, rooms and associates. Could you possibly elaborate as to the experience you had with the other golfers on the course? Is it related to pace of play? Upkeep of the course? Your feedback is crucial and ensures... More

There are 3 excellent courses on this golf hotel complex - Outeniqua, Montagu & The Links. Outeniqua is the most straight forward of the courses. It is laid out in charming and attractive surroundings with adjacent Dutch Colonial style properties and kept in superb condition. Montagu is more challenging and undulating. Play is fairly slow, particularly on the back 9,... More

Sadly only stayed for one night. Amazing place, staff could not be faulted. If you want a particular restaurant you need to book in advance. We were well looked after. We were not able to take advantage of the golf courses. We did enjoy the suggested walks around the estate. The gym pool etc looked wonderful.

What I hoped would be the highlight of my golfing holiday tour, turned out to be a let down. I'll give credit where it is due though, the course is in pristine condition. Unfortunately the poor course marshalling overshadowed that. We were informed by the "starter" that we would be playing off the "fish" tee box after confirming our handicaps... More
