Our family has been coming to Fancourt for at least 10 years and this trip our experience at the restaurants were by far the worst, unfortunately. The most recent today at lunch being offered the first salmon platter for the day at R190 something for 8 salmon sushi pieces but on the system it was R165 so we were asked if they could add the additional R30 as side fry orders, we said we understood no problem but then to get back to the lodge and all we received is a few sad pieces of sushi without any soya sauce or chopsticks. What’s happened, Fancourt? A long festive season, I think.

We visited here as a couple having been recommended this venue for its luxury and quality. We experienced what we felt to be a “lads golf” weekend while their partners and nanny’s entertained the children by the swimming pool. I counted and heard 17 children under the age of 10 by the pool - nothing wrong with children just tell us this when we book that this may be the case as I didn’t see this mentioned on your website when I booked? How about an “adult only” pool for us grumpy old men? Another example we had three 4 balls queuing at the first tee. No available caddies to be seen. Golf trollies abandoned at the 3rd tee as a result of caddies having to catch players up. Resulting in a round taking 4 hours 25 minutes. Choose when you go and be careful.

With so much to do at Fancourt,you wouldn't want to leave.Our kids experienced the joy of fishing and golf was the order of their day..Breakfast is absolutely divine. My favorite was definitely the Spa,where Belinda with her hands of gold did her magic. This is our local "go to"holiday destination. In a nutshell....We love it here.

Hollow Tine one course and wait at least 4-6 weeks before the other course is maintained. Fancourt has two courses and one would expect that one course is in excellent condition while the other one is recovering from hollow tining. Unfortunately that is not the case. They treated one course after the other so players have a below par experience and no acceptable course to play.

This is an amazing 5-star resort and oozes class. Besides having three fantastic golf courses the Country Club is special.

Rooms are excellent and very comfortable beds, good AC and excellent super-fast Wi-Fi. Breakfast was extremely good. Service from staff was 1st class and I could not fault it.

At short notice I had to sign a document and send to Ireland. I went to the concierge/guest relations Craig Van Ster and explained I needed a document printed and couriered to Ireland. He said send it to me and within 1 minute it was printed and I signed it. Craig took it and took care of couriering it to Ireland it was so easy and stress free!! I must say Craig was such a great support and as good an ambassador as you could hope for the the Fancourt Country Club. Document arrived in good time in Ireland and I was relieved of any worries about will it get there by Craig.

Staff and service was so good on the resort and a credit to management. I would absolutely love to come back.

My 1st time in George and I was lucky enough to spend it at Fancourt. I was part of a business offsite and the staff still went above and beyond considering we were such a large group of guests. Location and rooms were beautiful, will definitely come back as a paying guest

Played Montagu and the Links, Montagu front nine devilishly tight and well designed; the back nine is therfore dissapointing, not a patch on the front. Par threes are the best for me. I have played at a number of courses and resorts in SA; and unfortunatley this was my least liked. They are very good courses, but there are many better in SA. And as for the halfway house, not worth stopping. I was at a conference with clients from all over the world, we arrived with great expectation, but left disspointed.

Staff were great, but the resort didnt live up to its billing.

Perfect hotel facilities, somewhat downsized because of the pandemic. Perfect room, restaurants limited for a 5 day stay. Breakfast quite crowded. Golf very good.

We have just had three glorious nights at Fancourt playing each of the three golf courses. From the moment that we arrived we received fantastic personal service & the staff were tremendously helpful & courteous. Our accommodation was spacious & we dined each night at the Cantina restaurant where the food & ambience were excellent. The golf courses are stunning & provide a fair challenge for golfers of all abilities. The views of the surrounding mountains are spectacular. No hesitation in recommending this wonderful golf resort.

Played there in a amateur golf tournament. The course was in beautiful condition, the greens some of the best i have see. Service at the golf club is excellent with a well stocked pro shop. Prices are a little bit steep, but for the experience worth it
