Fancourt has been awarded South Africa ’s Leading Golf Resort by The World Travel Awards.

The Awards, currently celebrating its 15th Anniversary, held the first Africa Awards Ceremony at the ICC in Durban on 12 May 2008. The event forms part of a World Travel Awards Grand Tour with regional awards staged throughout the world. The Grand Final takes place on 12 December 2008 at Caicos in the Caribbean.

“The World Travel Awards acknowledge and celebrate excellence in the world’s travel and tourism industry,’ says Fancourt’s CEO, Mrs Ingrid Diesel. “Winning a World Travel Award has become one of the highest achievements a travel product could ever hope to receive and we are honoured to be recognised amongst the best in world travel.”

It is not the first time Fancourt has received global honours, some of Fancourt’s local and international accolades include being named Golf Resort of the Year by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO: 2004), chosen as Africa’s Leading Golf Resort for five years running (World Travel Awards: 2001, 02, 03, 04, 05) and having the 2001 Fancourt Spring Ball rated ‘Fifth Social Function in the World’ by Gold, an international Condà© Nast magazine.

Fancourt is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World and has been accredited with a Leading Spas of the World status.

Fancourt’s primary attraction is undoubtedly its golf courses; however for the non-golfer, other facilities and activities include the beautifully maintained tennis courts, swimming pools, and outdoor running trails around the resort. Mountain biking, horse riding, picnics, walks and hikes can be arranged on request, and there is easy access to glorious beaches and the warm Indian Ocean.
