Prince’s Grant, Fancourt and Lost City are Golf Digest Editors’ Choices
International awards for Prince’s Grant, Fancourt and Lost City.
The Lodge at Prince’s Grant (pictured) is one of three South African destinations which have been recognised in the Golf Digest International Lifestyle awards.
The Prince’s Grant golf estate, on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast, is unusual in having large and luxurious rooms for guests on the upper oor of the clubhouse overlooking the opening holes of the course. Prince’s Grant developer Guy Smith has a passion for Scottish golf, and the architecture of The Lodge re ects that.
Golf Digest have included The Lodge as an Editors’ Choice in their travel section among the best gol ng boutique hotels around the world. Others in this category include Scotland’s Greywalls (adjoining the Muir eld links) and the Royal Golf Hotel (Dornoch), plus Casa Palmero at Pebble Beach. There are 15 rooms, seven in The Lodge and eight in the Umdoni Suites annex surrounding a pool.
There is a pub and restaurant, and The Lodge is an excellent gol ng destination or base for golfers visiting the North Coast, being 30 minutes from King Shaka Airport.
Fancourt, with its exceptional reputation for 5-star accommodation and golf, receives an Editors’ Choice as one of three recommended golf resorts in Africa/Middle East, the others being Heritage in Mauritius, and the Westin Abu Dhabi.
The Palace of the Lost City is on a list of the world’s Grand Golf Hotels, alongside the likes of Gleneagles, The Greenbrier, Adare Manor, and Turnberry.” – STUART McLEAN
