South Africa Golf Holidays - Humewood Golf Club

Humewood Golf Course in Port Elizabeth is as close to a traditional links course as you will get in Africa. It is situated amongst the sand dunes along the shores of Algoa Bay, Port Elizabeth. For visitors on a South Africa golf holiday, Humewood provides a supreme test of links play skills. Golfers who have travelled along the Garden Route will usually finish their tour with at least one night in Port Elizabeth, offering a chance to play Humewood before they leave.  

The fairways are exposed, undulating and wide, to compensate for strong winds. There are few bunkers with steep faces, greens are firm and fast, giving you some much welcome extra yards of ball-roll but the rough is thick coastal bush that swallows balls whole.  If all that wasn't enough, the sea 'breeze' contributes to make this a real challenge for any golfer. There are no water hazards. 

The course centres around the old, white walled, double storey clubhouse. Elegantly set, the staff and members extends a warm welcome to visitors on South African golf holidays. 

Abundant animal life is found on the course including monkeys, small buck, tortoises, meerkats and plovers. The crowned plover or "kiewietjie" is found on the club's emblem. After a round, indulge in some superb views over the course and Algoa Bay from the "19th".

Port Elizabeth has a number of excellent B&B properties as well as larger hotels that we can recommend. It is also about an hour's drive from the Addo National Elephant Park and a number of safari lodges such as Shamwari and Pumba. It is easy to combine a stay in Port Elizabeth with a couple of nights on safari. An hours drive from Port Elizabeth is the small village of St Francis which has a further 2 excellent golf courses including another newly built Jack Niklaus links-style course St Francis Links.
