GEORGE, SOUTH AFRICA - Avid golfers can now experience a truly exceptional golfing breakaway at The Manor House on Fancourt Estate, with the launch of an exclusive, first of its kind Pro Package that comes complete with the expert tuition and guidance of a personal golfing professional.
Designed as a luxury package for individual golfers, the Pro Package includes four nights' accommodation at The Manor House, Fancourt Estate's luxurious and exclusive boutique hotel, as well as the opportunity to be pampered both on and off the estate's golf courses and the chance to play the members-only private club and No 1 ranked course in South Africa - The Links.
"The concept of offering individual golfers the added value of having their own golf pro for the duration of their stay is a world first for Fancourt estate and positions The Manor House and the estate's three world-class golf courses at the pinnacle of South Africa's golf tourism sector," says Fancourt's sales and marketing director, Peter Dros.
"Pro Package guests will be greeted at George Airport by a personal butler with refreshments before being driven to The Manor House in the hotel's beautiful chauffeured BMW. Their golf pro will greet them on arrival at the hotel and will go through the exciting itinerary with them, which includes a personal video assessment on the first afternoon and a round of golf on the Outeniqua, Montagu and Links courses, accompanied by the pro as part of an exclusive two-ball, with guidance and tuition along the way," Dros adds.
Accommodation will be in one of The Manor House's 18 luxury suites and meals will be taken at either the renowned Henry White's restaurant or one of Fancourt Estate's other restaurants. The package also includes a range of luxury, personalised gifts and tempting treats such as truffles and champagne and afternoon tea and canapes.
"The concept for the Pro Package was borrowed from the safari industry, which offers private guiding options for guests who want a more exclusive safari experience," explains Dros. "By adapting this concept to the golf market and adding the exclusive services of a golf pro we are taking Fancourt's golf offering to a whole new level," he says.
