Worth a go

Beginning with the friendly and relaxing staff. A Links course, sand, rough, eating golf balls.
We haven't booked ahead, just called reception – no problem.
The prices are average. Well maintained, the wind a real challange. We have felt beeing alone, a very relaxing play.
Looking forward playing another round here.

Great, real links course with deductions in the B grade

If I had been dropped off in the middle of the square and had to guess where in the world I was I would have said Ireland… Scotland?
This is a "real" links course straight out of a picture book. Not a £280 styled course but a £30 public course somewhere in the middle of nowhere.
That's how links work. Hard, wavy fairways... few pot bunkers... large, slightly wavy greens... to the right and left of the fairway wide meadows or scrubby bushes... you can often see the sea behind the dunes. Everything a bit rough and casual. We only had a light wind, which didn't affect our game. Anyone who experiences the usual strong PE wind here is sure to have a real challenge.
The clubhouse is great! Not because it's fancy, quite the opposite. Here 100 years old morbid charm can be experienced.
South Africans are warm, friendly and communicative. But also sometimes funny and loud on the pitch. We had a super nice group of men in front of us, who had enough beer with them with a large cool bag and loudly commented on every shot. The longer they played, the more often they searched in the bushes...
Unusual for us but very likeable.

Now the deductions in the B grade:
We rented clubs: never experienced such bad rental clubs! And my wife had to play with men's racquets. The trolleys almost fell apart.

Conclusion: space is definitely worth it, but don't expect high expectations of the rest!
It's not like St Francis Links.

Was very fun

I have the place on 31.10. played in the best weather and light wind together with my two daughters. The price-performance ratio was very good. For 1 x 18 hole, 2 x 9 hole and 1 cart we paid 45 €.
The greens were well maintained and appealingly fast. The fairways were a bit dry at different places. Humewood is a traditional links course with deep bunkers and a somewhat outdated old clubhouse.
The service in the pro shop was very friendly and accommodating.

Similar to linkscourse

At almost no wind played behind a tournament. Still surprisingly fast. Per shop offer limited, value for money super, € 72 for two greenfee incl. E-cart!
Fairways not in optimal condition, greens extremely slow - uncut on this day.
Pot bunker and sea view are reminiscent of linkscourses.
Staff very accommodating but rental kits to Tl. From four brands also regarding the racket wild mixed.
Place and racket 3 *
Total package just under 4 *

Always a challenge

Humewood claims for himself the no. 1Links Course to be in the Eastern Cape.
I think this is not true, as is the St. Francis Links has a different "number".
But wind, and there is always the place is very difficult to play. A traditional historic clubhouse with a good range of snacks / wine. Really fun.
Recommended: Senior Day, then you get to the South Africans closer in touch. Also GC Humewood always some "specials" on offer.
Looking forward to the round in the 2018th

A golf course as a mirror image of the city

I played the beginning of January the square. The course is as PE - little exciting. The facility is located near a commercial area, adjacent to the ocean. A good view of the sea has not, however. Flow of the game was ok.

The fairways, bunkers and greens are well maintained. The greens are undulating little and very fast. Due to the sometimes very strong wind wins the game some of its attraction. For my taste, but the wind was a little too much on game day - even the scorecard has torn it from the bracket on the buggy.

The staff is not very customer oriented. The rental clubs were already quite used. Conclusion: In South Africa, there are certainly nicer places.

Wonderful sea view

The website describes the place very well. However, to compare it with St. Andrews is perhaps but a bit presumptuous. It is not a real links course, more of a mixture of links and parkland. From almost every hole you can see the sea. The place is well maintained, the greens are very fast. The holes are not really demanding, but the numerous Potbunker but these represent a certain challenge in PE this was the best course of 4, according to our golfing hotelier. We do not know the others, but Humwood worth playing himself.
