The Links is without doubt the most impressive piece of golf design in South Africa. Gary Player says: “I feel a genuine affinity for Fancourt. As a designer of the  golf courses, I experienced one of the greatest thrills of my  career here when captaining the International Presidents Cup team against Jack Nicklaus’ American team.

St Francis Links

Jack Nicklaus has had the pleasure of taking Mother Nature's best   piece of links land and signed his name to something special and unique. St Francis Links will challenge all who play it and reward those who respect it. It is the bunkering that truly defines the quality and character of St Francis Links.

From the opening drive, St Francis Links carries a look and feel that breathes history from times gone by.  The greens have simply been placed on top of the sand, changing shape in construction as the wind changed its mind. Some are more undulating than others. All putting surfaces and green surrounds present a mental and physical test.

Lost City & Gary Player Courses

Gary Player: Home to the prestigious Nedbank Golf Challenge, this course features a clever design, and its multiple tees make it equally enjoyable for the keen novice and the skilled professional.

The course offers lightning fast putting surfaces, constant changes in elevation, and challenging water hazards that will thoroughly examine every aspect of your game. Its kikuyu fairways and bent-grass greens provide the perfect playing surface, while the imaginatively placed bunkers make for a challenging round of golf.

Lost City Golf Course with the undulating and rocky terrain has an 18-hole desert-style golf course which is surrounded by spectacular views across the bushveld. Wide fairways, a series of lakes which separates the ninth with the finishing hole, the course covers more than 100 hectares and incorporates 28 000 square meters of water features.
