About
When the first review was submitted on our behalf, they listed St Francis Links as Jack Nicklaus at St Francis Links IN Port Elizabeth. through pretty good promotion and customer awareness, we have managed to get some great reviews and even the 2014 Certificate of Excellence - rated No. 2 with 5-starts behind the great attraction Shamwari. However, we are located outside Port Elizabeth in St Francis Bay. I am very happy with the reviews; however, if your search St Francis Links in St Francis Bay, you will not find us. If you search attractions, it asked for a city...when I search St Francis Bay, South Africa, St Francis Links will not appear. Please advise how I can maximize my presence with tripadvisor. I am not unhappy - just seeking the best Portal.

Thoroughly enjoyed the round I played at this golf course, albeit badly! It was pretty tricky in the wind but the course was in pretty good condition. It looks as if there has been a shortage of rain over the period and it was a shame to see the lake short of water. Clearly this has been used to water the course of late.

Played mid April with my husband and we really enjoyed walking and playing the course. Beautiful views, challenging but lovely lay-out, friendly staff and the course was in great condition. Tee time was for about 8:30 so we had a tasty relaxing breakfast waiting for the fog to lift. Starter was friendly although he suggested that my husband play from the blues, without asking his handicap (12). He meant well but probably best to ask someone’s handicap before giving suggestions. Would advise an early tee time to avoid the winds that normally pick up later in the morning/early afternoon. We were very lucky - virtually no wind for us but we did hear stories from locals. The club and course are really nice so leave enough time for a meal either before or after the round. Thanks to everyone on the St. Francis team - a great day out!

Absolutely top shelf, the friendliness and effort by the staff was incredible. We had a golf tour with 12 guys and the team arranged various special little surprises, including customised lockers, and a "shootout" on the fourth hole after our game.

Incredible hospitality and service we’ve received. It was out of this world and quite affordable for such a high ranked golf course.

Your staff is next level – friendly, helpful, warm, kind straight through.
We experienced something very special at the club and just want to congratulate you on what you are doing and achieving at the Links. It says a lot of the club when the people all seem happy and engaging and we felt very welcome!

The course was also in mint condition – one of the best we’ve ever played! Our whole group enjoyed it immensely and we’ll definitely visit you again. Thank you

What a treat! 3rd time at this magnificent course, Jack Nicklaus design. From arrival to departure you feel this is up with the best. Lovely layout, incredible rough, read, bush, ball gone, so no room for error, especially when its windy (always). If you are no low hcapper, play front tees and bring enough balls to have a good experience. As an example, we played with a pro, practicing for the SA tour, who had to borrow my balls as he ran out….Good pro shop, half way house and amazing clubhouse. Never seen this before, Pearl Valley comes close.

This is our email after an unforgettable golf tour to the St Francis Links:
Good morning Jeff.

We must thank you guys.
I have been running the Riller Cup (in its many variations) for 10 years now and I can honestly say that the St Francis experience was our most enjoyable yet.

Please give our sincere thanks to your whole team.

A special thanks to Sharon for all the effort with the catering and the booking, it was professional service with perfect execution.
Christo and the Proshop team. They were always friendly and assisted us with a smile and we enjoyed their quick wit.
To all the other staff. The guys assisting with the bags, barmen/ladies, halfway house staff etc. Never did we see one of these people without a smile on their faces.

We could see that all your staff enjoys and is proud of their work and THAT is the main reason the experience is so enjoyable for all the visitors.

Our next tour is to Hermanus, but don’t be surprised if we return in 2024……

All the best.

Beautiful course, but terrible management. 1. No starter at the first tee, so it's basically first come, first served regardless of tee times; 2.No marshals on the course; 3. As a result ,throughout the round their are complete families(with children and dogs) roaming the fairways, out for a stroll; 4.Residents coming out of their homes to jump on the course regardless of paid players. I could go on but you get the picture.

We are a group of 8 guys that travel to a different location every year to have our annual TOUR. We have been doing this for the last 14 years, and what made it more special was the St Francis Links experience.
Our previous visit at the Links was exactly 10 years ago. The course is absolutely amazing. What made the experience unforgettable, and the one thing that will make us come back every time, is the friendliness of the people and how accommodating everyone is.
One word of advice when you visit: Be friendly and engaging with the people and they will return this ten-fold!

Thanks for an incredible experience!

The Par2Bar boys choose the Eastern Cape to have their annual golf tournament. I had a discussion with Sharon at St Francis links and she arranged for us to play Humewood, St Francis Bay and St Francis Links. She arranged all the golf tee off times for us. Getting to St Francis links with no expectations we found that our Golf Carts were marked with our pairings and our logo. It gets better when you walk into the pro-shop there is another welcome sign for Par2Bar with the logo. The highlight was walking into the change rooms an finding your name on the locker with your logo. Absolutely magnificent. We were treated with warm hospitality by all the staff at St Francis. Thank you Sharon for arranging and we definitely will be back!
