Golf Courses

The Links
18 holes
Par 72
Designed by Gary Player
The Links at Fancourt is without doubt the most impressive piece of golf design and construction ever in South Africa. Fancourt owner Dr Hasso Plattner, who together with Gary Player took a very hands-on approach in the creation thereof, commissioned a golf course, which would not only be a thorough test for every golfer, but would also rank among the top courses in the world. The Links was the host venue for the 2003 Presidents Cup, which ended in an historic tie after a dramatic play-off between Tiger Woods and Ernie Els. The Links is currently ranked the 30th best course in the world outside of the United States. (The highest ranking of any course in South Africa)
18 holes
Par 72
Designed by Gary Player
The exquisitely conditioned Montagu is at the heart of Fancourt, with its glorious parkland layout, covering large tracts of varying terrain on rolling land. Its beauty is enhanced by mature trees, flower beds, shrubs and water hazards that provide a colourful contrast to the landscape.
18 holes
Par 72
Designed by Gary Player
The Outeniqua is regarded as the easier course of the three, being more open in appearance, yet it has its share of challenges and risk-and-reward moments. Water hazards or streams come into play on as many as 11 of the holes, including 4 of the last 5.

A sweet spot is a combination of factors resulting in maximum response for a given amount of effort. In golf, a given swing will result in a more powerful hit if the ball strikes the club on the sweet spot. The Sweet Spot in Morning Glory has nothing to do with sport but rather sweet indulgence with a choice of assorted cakes, crunchies, mini desserts, chocolate dipped strawberries and for the children candy apples, chocolate marshmallow kebabs and jelly beans.
For the tea connoisseur, Morning Glory has a selection of Ronnefeldt tea, imported from Germany. Choose from the traditional blends of English breakfast, Earl Grey, or Jasmine or be daring and try one of the exotic blends such as Pai Mu Ta & Melon, Wild Cherry or Rooibos Vanilla.
