We played this course a year ago and again today. It is beautifully integrated between the dunes and fynbos, every hole different and very separate from the others. It's a tough ladies' course, but still fun to play. You will lose balls as you're not...More

What an unbelievable venue and team for the biggest day of your life!! A few weeks after our engagement we visited the Links as a potential venue. We've attended events there before so we knew it was beautiful and professional but we'd seen nothing yet!...More

Beautifully shaped course where every obstacle was in the right place. Playing the course you feel almost alone since more or less all the holes har "it's own room". Well maintained and firm quick greens. Just need to come back some time!

Frankly, it is hard to say anything bad about St Francis Links. After the Old Course, Prestwick this is my favourite links course in the world. Great condition, good, welcoming club house - avoid it if the wind is blowing!More

Played the 2nd nine on this very challenging golf course (bring extra balls). Great facilities and well maintained golf course as well as fantastic support facilities like restaurant, showers, personalized lockers, etc. One of the top 10 golf resorts in South Africa.
