The Royal Port Alfred Golf Course is one of the oldest and best known in South Africa and was established in 1907.The undulating course snakes its way through thickets of pristine coastal forest and over hilly dunes always with the smell and sounds of the Indian Ocean close by whose blue waters offer the most panoramic views from many of the fairways. In true links tradition every slope, mound and dip remains untouched, demanding creative shot making and deft reading of angles.Adding to the allure and charm of the course is its resident wild life. Normally shy bushbuck will continue grazing contently as you walk by while springbok and impala pronk with delight. The blesbok, fallow deer duiker and giant tortoise peer at the golfers with suspicion and there is bird life in abundance.Visitors are always most welcome.

Royal Port Alfred golf club is a little gem. It's well maintained, well manicured and offers a lot of diversity, ranging from drivable par 4's to unreachable par 3 in the right wind. The 18 hole layout nestled in the sea shrub will mislead you...More

The menu lets itself down as the food exceeds the poor menu graphics. Fabulous staff, alert to your every need. Just a couple of gripes. Poor poor wine choice by glass. Worst in town and also the desert menu! You are better than what you...More
