“Rare pure Links experience in SA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

Arguably the only pure links course in South Africa, Humewood in Port Elizabeth is a must for any golf fanatic visiting the Eastern Cape.

Often overlooked due to the other host of modern courses on the Garden route, the course has a lot to offer the discerning golfer. Consistently rated in the top 20 courses in SA, the new greens have been a great improvement and the rolling fairways are in great condition.

The wind is part of the experience and the course can be a real challenge for even the low handicappers when it starts pumping.

Friendly staff, a wonderful though dated clubhouse and great ocean vistas from most of the holes make this a fantastic choice for 18 holes. Watch out for the tricky par 3, hole number 6, infamously called the shortest par 5 in the world!

They are currently running a special for 18 holes on Sunday afternoon for R100, a steal for what you get.
