Home to one of the world's most challenging links courses, Humewood is consistently ranked as one of South Africa's Top golf courses. The late Bobby Locke considered Humewood Golf Course to be the best in South Africa and said that it compared favourably with the top links courses in the British Isles. Humewood has hosted the South African Amateur 10 times and the South African Open 5 times.

Found in the coastal city of Port Elizabeth, the golf course is a genuine seaside links, with wide and undulating fairways, fast greens and thick coastal bush. A round is a must for any golfer visiting the 'Friendly City' of Port Elizabeth.

The course boasts a variety of animal life with an abundance of plovers, otherwise known as "kiewietjies", one of which makes up the club's emblem. And, after your round of golf, relax at the "19th" in the elegant Club House and indulge in a spectacular view over the links course itself as well as Algoa Bay.

Our booking was honoured even though we were the only visitors playing amidst the club championship field! Staff and the members we spoke to were all very friendly and welcoming. Some GUR on the fairways and the greens were perhaps a little slower than expected but a delightful true links course well worth the very reasonable cost.

Lovely people, helpful pro shop, clubhouse staff, good food, great course, greens suffering a lot from drought and likely other circus.

This is a great course to play which unfortunately is suffering due to lack of rain. The fairways are very dry and greens show signs of heat stress. Nevertheless we enjoyed playing it especially as it was a fairly calm day. We found the staff friendly and efficient and would return
