Fancourt Estate’s The Links private club is South Africa’s number one golf course. Exclusivity and privacy, and Fancourt’s signature hospitality, is guaranteed.
The Links is currently ranked as the number one golf course in the country by Golf Digest South Africa. It also ranks 38th in Golf Digest US edition’s list of the world’s 100 greatest golf courses that compared 464 courses from 18 countries around the globe.
The Links is the iconic golfing hallmark of the Fancourt estate. Golfing legend Gary Player described it as his greatest ever feat as a course designer.For a great test of golf in stunning surroundings, The Links Course at Fancourt is hard to beat. Host to the President's Cup in November 2003 it presents a unique golfing experience, that is in the same league as some of the best links golf in the likes of Scotland and Ireland.
It is, however, one of the most difficult tests of golf in South Africa so we recommend you carry more balls than usual and be patient - The Links was never meant to be a low scoring, target golf course. Thankfully, this golf course provides some of the best caddies in the country to guide you round.
