3 REASONS WHY THE FAIRWAY HOTEL LOVES THE GOLF TRAVEL GURU

2017 will see the rise of combo trips, the “year of the grape” and the arrival of social media as top golfing trends and recurring themes, according to author Ed Schmidt Jr. AKA The Golf Travel Guru

Right on trend, The Fairway Hotel, Spa and Golf Resort and Randpark Golf Course has teamed up to bring golfers a “Play and Stay” package which caters for the golfer and his or her spouse. For R2475 per night golfers and their spouses are treated to accommodation, breakfast, one round of golf, a complimentary golf cart and a Fairway Spa voucher.

Three Spa combos are available and include treatments such as back, neck and shoulder massages, manicures, pedicures, facials and something to eat.

Single golfers can enjoy accommodation, breakfast a round of golf and a golf cart for R1725.  The golf villas which sport four private rooms per villa with a shared lounge and kitchen, are the ideal option for four balls traveling together.

The Golf Travel Guru further predicts that 2017 will be the year of the grape; packages combining golf and wine will do really well. “Countries that are heavily promoting incorporating wine experiences like tours and tastings with golf are Australia, South Africa, Italy, France, New Zealand and the U.S. (Napa Valley and Sonoma in California and Oregon). In the past year I’ve been to Napa/Sonoma, Italy and South Africa and I can fully attest that superb wines and great golf are an excellent pairing.”

Golfing wine connoisseurs are encouraged to pre-book for the food and wine pairing dinners at the Fairway Hotel which takes place once a month and features some of the top wines in South Africa: April 26 features Boschendal Estate with Vergelegen Estate on the 25th of May and  Vergenoegd Wine Estate on the 29th of June. This delicious four course menu and wine pairing is prepared by Executive Chef Jean-Pierre Siegenthaler in the award-winning Balata Restaurant.
