The 23rd successive Fancourt Amateur Open is being held from Tuesday 10th to Sunday 15th April 2018. The event which is always held in May is moved a month forward as Montagu is closing on 16th April for 5 months in order to re-surface the greens. We will be playing 2 rounds on Montagu and 2 rounds on Outeniqua.  Celebrate and swing into form and enter this competitive fun-filled tournament, which is held annually and attracts players both locally and abroad.    Format of play is a 72 hole Medal Competition for A division Players (0-9 handicap) and Individual Stableford for B Division Players (10 – 18 handicap).  A practice round on Montagu or Outeniqua is also included. For those on the package and residing at Fancourt, you do have the option to book the Links on Tuesday 10th or Sunday 15th April and therefore arrange your flight times accordingly.  Alternatively, if you would like to arrive on Monday 11th April, special accommodation rates are available and you will also be able to play the Links then as an option. Rates are indicated below.
