South Africa is the perfect winter golf destination
South Africa has quickly become one of our favourite winter golf destinations. Great climate, high quality golf courses and hotels, stunning scenery, fantastic food and wine plus tremendous value for money all combine to produce a perfect winter golf holiday.
The 2017 Greencard Golf Tour event in South Africa will be a double venue trip based in two luxury hotels with 6 rounds of golf, including our 72 hole tournament. The first stage of the event will be based in Cape Town before we head off along the Garden Route to George and the magnificent Fancourt Golf & Spa Resort. These are two of our favourite hotels on the tour calendar and never disappoint.
Fly between venues
This year, due to the distance between venues and as an added option we are offering the opportunity to fly between Cape Town and George avoiding the need for a long road trip, although it is one of the most beautiful in the World. Your luggage will be taken separately by road and will be in your hotel rooms when you arrive in Fancourt so you only need travel with hand luggage.
The Vineyard: Cape Town

Located in the lush leafy suburb of Newlands, the Vineyard Hotel is within easy walking distance of the up-market Cavendish Shopping Centre and is just 10 minutes away from the City Centre and the popular Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
Cape Town itself has so much to offer and has to be on your bucket list of great cities to visit.

Beyond the city there are also numerous activities to experience during your stay all within easy reach of our base at the Vineyard. Take a drive down the coast to Chapman’s Peak and then across the peninsula to Simonstown to see the penguins is memorable.

Golf Course Overviews
Pearl Valley Golf Club
This masterpiece was shaped by the vision of golf legend Jack Nicklaus and his unique touch is evident throughout the course. Officially opened in November 2003 by Nicklaus and South African great, Gary Player
Clovelly Country Club
The Cape is the home of South African golf, and Clovelly ranks as one of the finest courses in the Cape Peninsula. It is unique in that it follows neither a links nor American tradition in its design.
Regarded as one of Southern Africa’s most picturesque and challenging courses, Clovelly is a tight course by South African standards complements its rich coastal environment. it is famous for its championship quality greens rolling, computer-irrigated fairways and fine blend of testing holes,
Steenberg Golf Course
Steenberg is described as “a place of heritage, vintage wines and world-class golf” three characteristics which naturally make it a perfect place to host a round of the 2016 Greencard Tour (well 2 out of 3 anyway!). The Steenberg golf course itself is rated as one of the top three courses to visit in South Africa.
Visually stunning, great fairways and greens plus challenging layouts make this course we had to include for on our 2016 trip.
Simola Golf Course
This Jack Nicklaus signature course offers challenging and rewarding golf amidst spectacular scenery. Every hole boasts exceptional views, either out across the Knysna Lagoon all the way to the Heads or over the picturesque Knysna river.
Fancourt | Montagu & Outenique Courses
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 layouts in the country.
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.
Flights to South Africa
You can fly non-stop from Heathrow to Cape Town with BA, Virgin or South African Airways or from Manchester, Birmingham, London Gatwick via Frankfurt, Paris or Dubai. All of these airlines also fly back from Johannesburg.
On your return journey we recommend flying from George to Johannesburg and then home but of course you could fly back to Cape Town or drive as most flights are early evening and you will have plenty of time.
If you need assistance Greencard Golf clients can get a personal service from one of the UK’s largest and well-known flight bookers which will ensure you get the best deals possible – please contact us for details.
