Fancourt, South Africa’s premier leisure and business resort, situated in the heart of the famous Garden Route, has announced a brand new association with the prestigious international watchmaker, Rolex -  the first partnership of its kind in South Africa

Fancourt South Africa has announced a brand new association with the prestigious international watchmaker, Rolex. The first partnership of its kind in Southern Africa, Rolex has designed 10 clocks which are strategically positioned for golfers’ time-keeping convenience around the estate, including at the Fancourt Clubhouse, The Links, Montagu and Outeniqua golf courses, as well as on all practice and warm up facilities.

The relationship between Rolex and golf has continued to grow since its inception in 1967, and today, the Rolex brand is one of golf’s leading supporters worldwide. This luxury brand not only sponsors professional tours, competitions and athletes from around the world, but is a key partner to the world’s greatest golfing events, including The Masters, The US Open, The Open Championship, The Ryder Cup and The Presidents Cup. 

Brand Ambassadors for Rolex within the game of Golf include our own Retief Goosen (an honorary members of The Links), and Trevor Immelman, as well as other legends of the game and golfing greats like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Martin Kaymer, Adam Scott and Luke Donald. With the new Fancourt association, Rolex brings the partnership to the home of one of its own, Gary Player, who originally designed all three of Fancourt’s lauded golf courses. Gary continues to endorse the iconic Rolex brand after more than a decade of sponsorship. Rolex is also a partner to the two largest international professional golfing bodies, the US PGA Tour and the European Tour, supporting both women’s and men’s professional golf.

Sales & Marketing Director of Fancourt, Carl Reinders expressed his enthusiasm at the joint venture: ‘Rolex is an elite, prestigious and recognized brand in the golfing world internationally, and this partnership with Fancourt is a perfect association between two premium and internationally respected brands‘.
