George Golf Club

-Garden Route, South Africa

Rated the best parkland course in South Africa - the classic layout that has not changed much over the years.

Situated on the famous Garden Route on the South Coast, the locals of George have been playing golf here since 1886. It is also deal to play when staying at Fancourt. The current course was designed by Dr Charles Murray and laid out in the early 1930’s. In recent years the course has been noticeably improved. It now has bent grass greens, kikuyu fairways with a central dam introduced to this classic layout. This is an excellent parkland course with many types of mature trees set against the stunning back drop of the Outeniqua Mountains and remains one of the most popular courses on the Garden Route. George is rated in the top 30 courses in South Africa.

The gently undulating front nine give way to more elevated holes on the back nine. Tree lined fairways and well placed bunkers guard large and subtly sloping greens. Several holes are played from elevated tees in particular the signature 17th par three. This is a true challenge and is considered one of the finest par 3’s in South Africa. It requires a fairway wood to a narrow green where there are two bunkers waiting to catch your drive. The par four 18th is the most difficult hole on the back nine. Your drive can be fed towards the large dam and thick bush on the left of the fairway. Your approach shot to the green has to be spot on. If you hit your ball right of the green, you could find yourself hitting out of what the locals proudly call “the snake pit”. These were considered to be Bobby Locke’s best two finishing holes in South Africa.
