PORT ELIZABETH, SOUTH AFRICA
GOLF: Humewood Golf Club was considered the top course in South Africa by the legendary countryman, professional Bobby Locke during his prime in the 1930s and 40s. A genuine seaside links, Humewood has played host to the South African Open and South African Amateur on many occasions and Ernie Els is a past champion of the Goodyear Classic, held at the course from 1984-1992. The greens were converted to bentgrass in 2009 and the result was consistently magnificent putting surfaces.
RICHARDS BAY, SOUTH AFRICA
GOLF: Zimbali Country Club offers irresistible ocean and forest views, exceptional water and wetland features within an inspiring natural setting, and has developed the reputation of a memorable course with charisma and challenge. With the agenda of “conservation takes precedence,” international golf course designer and former British and South African PGA champion, Tom Weiskopf crafted a course with dramatic elevation changes, varying eco-systems, which is ecologically sound while maximizing the natural landscape.
DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA
GOLF: Durban Country Club combines lush vegetation, sand dunes and gorgeous views of the Indian Ocean and is a typical links layout with wide, undulating fairways. As a regular host for the South African Open as well as the Volvo Open in 2013 and 2014, the course measures 6,400 yards and plays to a par 70 from the club tees. The par-5 5th will seize your attention due to the elevated tee, gusting wind and ocean view.
CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA
GOLF: Pearl Valley, set in the famous Franschhoek Wine region, is a Jack Nicklaus Signature Course and a treat to play. Pearl Valley is considered one of the top conditioned courses. As with many Nicklaus courses, water on the right with plenty of sand will keep the golfers’ minds off the wide landing areas provided. The course and its geographical location allow for guests to enjoy a day outing in the Winelands with high-quality golf to complement the food and wine.
