European Decembers are ice cold, chilly affairs, unlike sunny South Africa with its balmy summer December weather. Golfers seeking sunshine flock to South Africa over the summer season, traditionally between October and February.
“Just the past month, The Fairway Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort in Johannesburg has seen a dramatic increase in international golf bookings”, says Group Marketing Manager of the Guvon Hotels & Spas group, Christa Badenhorst. “ Groups from the UK, Germany, Sweden and Ghana have all opted for our great climate and stunning golf courses. Bookings are for an average stay of four nights, up to 16 players at a time.”
Fairway Hotel’s summer packages are very attractive to the European market with a 50% discount on published rates for the period of 12 to 23 December 2014. (ZAR500 / 35 Euro ppn night sharing in a golf villa, with full uptake of the villa.) A 30% discount on rack rate applies for 24 to 31 December, with a minimum three night stay. (ZAR700 / 50Euro pppn sharing). The rate includes breakfast.
The Fairway Hotel is situated on the Randpark Golf Course with two distinctive 18-hole golf courses and a stylish, modern clubhouse. The hotel and golf course are 15 minutes from Sandton Square and Sandton City, and 5 minutes from the world-class Cresta Shopping Centre. For nature lovers who are eager to see the Big 5, a day trip to Askari Game Lodge& Spa, one hour from the hotel can be arranged. Sun City and the Pilanesberg Game Reserves are approximately two hours from the hotel.
