Humewood Golf Club

  • Marine Drive
  • Summerstrand
  • Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape 6001 South Africa

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.

It was the first time that I have played at Humewood. The course was not too bad. It is end of summer and most courses are not looking too great. The greens were okay but I expected more from the course as everybody told me that this is the best course to play in the Eastern Cape. The clubhouse is falling apart and looks terrible, not the type of clubhouse you would associate with a course like Humewood. The halfway house looks run down and definitely not a neat place. No menu with prices. Not great halfway food options either. It is not a good value for money club and course.

Its a very gutsy course, very challenging around the greens. Only one complaint, played alot of courses, the carts are the most expensive i have ever played with. But the course is a perfect challenge, keeping you humble... will play again

The place was okay - but not more. The clubhouse would like to be renovated once.

The course was very dry and the greens much slower than other courses we played during our trio to South Africa.

The Course was fine but the Clubhouse and other ficilities were not maintained so it was not inviting and the Halfway House was closed.

Humewood is a challenging true links course which is fun to play. The extra wind made it very long and the greens were true but very slow. The old fashioned pot bunkers are well placed but there is lots of room for your drive. We would have ate and drank in the lounge after our game, we had planned on it, but it was closed due to so very few players on the Sunday.
