Golf holidays in South Africa

South Africa

It may come as a surprise to some, but the mountains, forests, coasts and deserts of the ‘rainbow nation’ have made it one of the most exciting and varied golf destinations on the planet. And with the tiny time difference, friendly people, year-round warmth and a favourable exchange rate, it makes a surprisingly refreshing change. Cape Town, Durban and the Garden Route are dotted with fantastic courses such as at the fabulous Fancourt Resort, which can be topped off with a safari in Kruger National Park for an action-packed trip. On the course, weave your shots between ancient trees, over cliff top gorges and along dramatic coastlines, ending the day with a sunset cocktail at your luxury hotel. And of course, twinned with a safari, beach or wine tasting break, you couldn’t ask for more.
