Golfing On The Garden Route


With more than 25 top-notch golf courses along the 250 km stretch of coastline, The Garden Route is widely recognised as South Africa’s golfing mecca. With this in mind, two hotels have come together to create a special that offers guests the opportunity to play no less than three of the country’s top golf courses.

Valid until 10 December 2021, locals can experience the famed ‘Plett feeling’ with The Plettenberg’s Putt and Plett special from just R2 515 per person sharing per night, including a round of golf at the Gary Player-designed Goose Valley Golf course, and the use of a golf cart.

Guests can enjoy 5-star treatment with luxury accommodation and a complimentary room upgrade plus minibar. Full English breakfast is included daily, as well as a 3-course dinner in the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant, or served in the comfort of guest suites.


Whale Watching and Dolphin Encounters

A rejuvenating spa treatment is included to the value of R550 per person at Fresh Wellness Spa, and a 2- varietal wine and canapé tasting with a vineyard platter to share at the award-winning Luka Vineyards nearby.

The Plett Winelands is home to 18 wine farms and is fast becoming a major attraction on the Garden Route, being conducive to producing cooler-climate wines such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir varietals.

To complete the ultimate holiday for outdoor enthusiasts, a 30% discount is offered on whale watching and dolphin encounters from Plett-based activity partners Ocean Blue Adventures, as well as visits to the trio of animal sanctuaries of Monkeyland, Birds of Eden and Jukani.

Tee Off In Paradise

Golfers may also extend the trip to Fancourt and book the 2-night ‘Tee off in paradise’ package where each guest receives one round of golf per day on Fancourt’s Outeniqua or Montagu golf courses. Alternatively, partners who do not play golf may use a complimentary Spa voucher to the value of R635, or a dinner voucher to the value of R375.

The Garden Route is the perfect destination for a self-drive road trip to soak in the unsurpassed scenery of the Southern Cape and the beguiling diversity of its seaside cliffs, white sandy beaches, lagoons and evergreen forests.
