Stay inSt Francis Bay, Eastern Cape

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 holer it is today.

The course is one of the best the Eastern Cape has to offer and is one of the most favoured holiday destination courses in South Africa and of course, all are now welcome to enjoy all that the club has to offer including the sandy beaches after a few rounds or the waterways of the nearby Marina that so many lavish St Francis Bay houses have been built upon.

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! Activities in the area include swimming, surfing, windsurfing, sun-tanning, body boarding and wave skiing. There’s also an operational airfield nearby for the aviators among you as well as the Kromme River that makes for excellent fishing.
