One of the special hidden gems we have in South Africa. A linksy course which exudes character and charm. On a breezy day it’s a challenge, yet like the Humewood links in PE it is eminently playable. Some very good holes, and plenty of variety. The greens are modern designs, with sensible slopes, although the short 17th is treacherous! The 15th is one of the best par 5s in the Eastern Cape. You don’t want to be hitting a long club into that splendidly designed green. I like the way the course wanders through the St Francis village, and there’s a friendly vibe in the clubhouse which can keep you at the 19th far longer than you intended..
