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
