Humewood Golf Club


Course Description:

The Humewood Golf course has been designed 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. Today, Humewood is still one of only a few genuine seaside links courses found outside of Britain.

It is 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.
