Golf Courses in the Eastern Cape

Whether you're on a family holiday in the Eastern Cape or a formal golf tour to South Africa, this province is a must for its excellent golfing and gorgeous settings. And, because the Eastern Cape has bigger cities like Port Elizabeth and East London, as well as smaller seaside resorts like St Francis and Port Alfred, the courses here are as varied as the places themselves.

The greens and fairways of the Eastern Cape golf courses are often perched on coastal dunes, and some boast breath-taking views of the ocean from their holes. After a morning on the greens, head to the beaches of the Eastern Cape or explore some of its best historical and cultural attractions.
