The Garden Route has taken on the mantle of being the Golf Mecca of South Africa, since the development of a number of truly world class courses, like the dramatic cliff-top courses of Pinnacle Point, Pezula and Ou Baai. Not to mention Fancourt, which has 4 scintillating 18 hole championship layouts including The Links - host to the 2003 Presidents Cup. Simola, George, and Goose Valley are other fantastic golf courses all within a short drive of each other.
Ideally situated between the major cities of Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, the spectacular Garden Route offers the visiting golfer the opportunity to customise a golf trip of a lifetime. A golf holiday that incorporates the very best golf courses, spectacular scenery and a wildlife safari.
Non golfers have a myriad of things to do also as the Garden Route is richly endowed with quaint towns, abundant excursion options and superb scenery. One drives through vineyards, indigenous forests, past meandering rivers, over scenic passes, alongside lakes, lagoons and golden beaches.
Between July and November, it also offers the finest land based whale watching in the world .
