Fancourt is South Africa’s premier golfing and leisure resort located in George on the Garden Route. Set in 550 hectares of lush countryside, it is superbly landscaped with the Outeniqua Mountains as its backdrop. It's also within easy reach of the many attractive tourist destinations in the area.
The Garden Route is renowned throughout the world for its immense natural beauty. Winding along the edge of the warm Indian Ocean, the Garden Route encompasses all of nature's wonders.
From huge mountain ranges and white beaches to small lakes and the country's largest remaining indigenous forest, the Tsitsikamma, this is home to a kaleidoscope of flora, fauna and a multitude of rare bird species. A highlight of the area is that it's malaria-free.
The Koi people named the area around Fancourt 'Outeniqua' or 'land of honey'. The name was a poetic description of the lush, fertile and beautiful surroundings.
Nearby lakes, rivers and beaches offer a multitude of water related activities. Boating, fishing, sailing, canoeing, water skiing, beaches and surfing are all available within 20 minutes from Fancourt.
A major attraction in the Garden Route area is the Outeniqua Choo Tjoe, a historic steam train which travels between George and the town of Knysna. The delightful Wild Oats Farmers Market in Sedgefield each Saturday morning and the cosy coffee shops in Mossel Bay are other enjoyable excursions as is a Knysna lagoon ferry ride.
