Greencard Golf Holidays South Africa 2019 Event

Golf holidays in South Africa have 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.

Our recent Golf in South Africa survey showed that our clients enjoy exploring and playing golf in this magnificent country and we are returning in 2019 to two of our most popular venues in Cape Town and George.

Double venue event at luxury hotels

The 2019 Greencard Golf Holidays South Africa event will be a double venue trip based in two luxury hotels with 7 rounds of golf, including our 72 hole tournament. The first stage of the event will be based in Cape Town and The Vineyard Hotel, before moving to the magnificent Fancourt Golf & Spa Resort which is consistently voted a favourite destinations amongst regulars on the Greencard Tour.

From Cape Town clients will have the option to drive to George along the famous Garden Route or alternatively we can organise a flight (airfare not included) from Cape Town directly to George where Fancourt Golf Resort is less than 10 minutes transfer.

The golf courses at Fancourt are regularly featured on lists of the best golf courses in the World.  The quality of the courses, stunning landscape and the knowledge of the golf team make playing here a fantastic experience.  Along with our featured courses we can also organise extra rounds on the resort courses including the famous Championship Links course.


Originally designed by Gary Player, Fancourt’s Montagu course was voted the favourite course of the five we played during our 2017 Greencard Golf Holidays South Africa event.  Over the past few years it has developed into one of the finest 18-hole parkland layouts, earning it the number 6 position on Golf Digest SA’s list of top golf courses in the country. Exquisitely conditioned to provide a riveting golfing experience, this tree-lined course covers large tracts of varying terrain on rolling land.


Ranked number 16 in South Africa by Golf Digest and designed by Gary Player. The course is a fantastic complement to it’s sister the  Montagu.  Named after the mountain range that forms its breath-taking backdrop, it is perfectly conditioned and always provides an enjoyable but true test of golfing with its many risk and reward opportunities.
