George attracts many tourists and visitors, mostly due to its prime location. A central hub of the Garden Route, situated between the Outeniqua Mountains and the Indian Ocean, surrounded by forests and lakes, George is the ultimate home for nature-lovers. Nature walks, birdwatching, canoeing, mountain biking, horse riding and hiking are all within minutes of the town, thereby making the beauty of the surrounding landscapes available to visitors and residents alike.
Some notable attractions include:
Oubaai Golf Club
George is renowned as the golf capital of the Western Cape, due to its numerous world-class golf courses. The Links, Montagu and Outeniqua courses at Fancourt have all been designed by golf champion, Gary Player. However, Oubaai Golf Club which has been designed by Ernie Els has often been cited as having one of the most picturesque, utopian courses yet. The success of its golf courses has solidified George as one of South Africa’s most significant places to visit.
Just beyond the pass lay Harold Wines. It is the first vineyard on the Garden Route to grow, produce and bottle certified wine on the very same premises. Visiting Harold Wines acquaints one with the incredible history of wine-making in the Garden Route and makes for a wonderful day out in the beauty of George.
George is a startlingly beautiful place, with scenery which is celebrated all over the world.
