St Francis Bay Golf Club

  • 556 Lyme Road
  • St Francis Bay, Eastern Cape 6312 South Africa

St Francis Bay Golf Club is renowned country-wide for its warm hospitality and a great club spirit, which has been the essence of the club over the years, and continues to grow. For all golfers, especially those visiting the Eastern Cape in South Africa, the opportunity to visit St Francis Bay Golf Club for a couple of rounds should not be missed.

Situated in one of South Africa’s, if not the worlds, the most exclusive locations, St Francis Bay Golf Course has been fashioned on an incredible piece of estate that overlooks the ocean that the town of St Francis Bay is built up against. The club, originally a nine hole course designed by Robert Grimsdell and funded by Leighton Hulett in 1975 was for private use but has since then incurred dramatic changes and a further 9 added by Maxwell in 1999 resulted in the 18 hole it is today.

The par 71, of moderate length provides a challenge and breaking par on this “thinking” course is going to prove to be a challenge. Fail or succeed there’s always the 19th to work out just what happened!

Almost everything fine. Nice staf, friendly and helpful. Only 8 just because of the street crossing and the holes on the "other side" are close together.

A very hospitable club, that feels like you’re playing in the heart of the village, course plays well with enough to keep players like ourselves (mid teens) happy.  Previously played the links course on a windy day and wished we’d come here.

It’s really 8.5! Very friendly, easy to book, no hassle. Course not in same category as some of SA’s great courses but a good test, nevertheless. As a holiday course excellent - thoroughly enjoyable.

Not the most exciting course and, because of the drought very dry and dusty.
