Humewood Golf Club, Humewood
Humewood Golf Course / Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape. One of South Africa’s top-rated golf clubs, Humewood is a true Links course which has hosted numerous PGA events, including the South African Open. The course is surrounded by coastal bush and, although it is close to the centre of Port Elizabeth, one sees very little evidence of human encroachment. Humewood is characterised by thick coastal bush, swales, humps and hollows.
Situated on the sand dunes on the shores of Algoa Bay, Port Elizabeth. The fairways are exposed, undulating and wide to compensate for strong winds. Bunkers are few with steep faces, greens are firm and fast, the rough is thick coastal bush and there are no water hazards.
The course centres around the old, white walled, double storey Club House. Elegantly set, it extends a warm and welcome feeling to all. Indulge in some superb views over the course and Algoa Bay from the "19th". Abundant animal life is found including monkeys, small buck, tortoises, meerkats and plovers. The crowned plover or "kiewietjie" is found on the club's emblem.
The great Bobby Locke considered Humewood to be the best course in South Africa rating it alongside the best links courses in Britain. He said that Humewood Golf Club was good enough to host The British Open should this Championship ever have to played outside of Britain.
