Outeniqua @ Fancourt – George

Outeniqua @ Fancourt – George

The Outeniqua Golf Course is one of two majestic 18-hole parkland layouts at Fancourt.  Designed by legendary golfer Gary Player, it is similar in character to neighboring Montagu, and its challenging design and fine conditioning will ensure an excellent test for all levels of golfers.  As with all three courses at Fancourt, there are a variety of tees from which to choose to play, ensuring that golfers are unlikely to ever feel overpowered by the course.
I want to play this course!

Since opening in the early 90′s with just 27 Gary Player-designed holes, Fancourt’s Outeniqua and Montagu golf courses have matured and developed into two of the finest 18-hole parkland golf courses in the whole of South Africa.  A round on either is a special experience, sculpted and finished as they are, with rare attention to detail and designed with the coastal George winds in mind.

The Outeniqua Golf Course is cleverly designed, and – with the Outeniqua Mountains as a constant back drop – very picturesque.  This parkland course presents a challenge to golfers of all levels.

The Outeniqua short par 4 4th hole will keep big hitters guessing whether or not to go for it and face the risk of the waterway that dominates the right side of the green and fairway, or play it safe and lay-up!
