Year on year, South Africa is reaffirming its place as one of the top golf destinations on the planet. Blessed with a wonderful climate & incredible scenery, South Africa is an exceptional choice for a golfing vacation.

This luxury Bucket List Tour boasts 7 rounds of golf on some of South Africa’s most iconic & picturesque Garden Route golf courses (including Fancourt Links which is currently rated SA’s No 1 course). We’ll also enjoy plenty of sight-seeing beyond the challenges of the fairways, including guided Game Drives at Gondwana Game Reserve, Wine Tastings and so much more.

On the tour, we will make our way along the coastline that is home to South Africa’s picturesque Garden Route. The coast is dotted with an excellent selection of golf courses as well as plenty of activities and tours for Non-Golfing partners, which makes the Garden Route a stand-out slice of South Africa.

This Tour promises to be up there with life’s best golf & non-golf experiences and we warmly invite you and your friends to join us.
