Fairways at Gooderson Drakensberg Gardens
Boasting the accolade of being one of the top five Medium Resorts in South Africa, Fairways at Gooderson Drakensberg Gardens continues to fly the flag for Gooderson Leisure. Her captain, namely Sandra Blessie, also achieved recognition of the highest order with her nomination in the Top Five Resort Managers in South Africa. Among all its achievements and accolades, the Resort has only one goal left to attain, to be awarded the coveted “Resort Of The Year” title.
Situated on 860 acres of World Heritage site, in the Gooderson Drakensberg Gardens Golf & Spa Resort, Fairways has spectacular view of the only 18 hole golf course in the Southern Berg. Spectacular contrasts of the seasons are particularly breathtaking! From November to March we have lush green rolling hills and azure blue skies, while from April to June the leaves turn to rich reds and burnt oranges.
In July, the snow caps the peaks of the mighty Drakensberg mountain range and occasionally blankets the golf course like a white tablecloth. This season is best enjoyed in front of a warm and romantic fire, melting marshmallows and mugs of steaming hot chocolate – an extreme contrast to the December heat. When the bursting buds and the greenery returns once again, it announces that spring has sprung in the magnificent Drakensberg.
There are four restaurants on-site, which offer a buffet/carvery, a la carte, clubhouse and a bistro for lighter meals. There are also a number of pubs on-site, which offer snooker and darts facilities as well as big screen TV’s. There is also a mini-superette a stone’s throw away from the Resort for your convenience.
For the ultimate experience of luxury, the health and beauty salon on the Resort, Body and Soul, offers restructuring, firming, facials, massage packages and much more.
Visit South Africa’s best-kept secret and return home invigorated, relaxed and revitalised, a mere two hours outside Durban. Fairways has it all – prime location, unbelievable panoramic views of the majestic Drakensberg mountain range, luxury accommodation, endless activities and amazing hospitality. What more could you possibly wish for in a holiday destination or an incredible investment.
