St Francis Golf Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 January 2017

The lodger surpasses your expectations. Very professional service. Youu get the feeling they care.
Rooms are not big but good standard with fantastic view of the golf course and the little town of St Francis.
The staff very helpful. Golf carts outside the lodge well in advance of your round.
We could have stayed for longer!

Room Tip: All rooms with good views but upper floor rooms preferable

Our visit here has to be the highlight of our trip. A huge "thank you" to Elma & ALL her staff for a truly wonderful stay. The lodge is a haven of peace, beautifully equipped & the service is great. The rooms are lovely with a thatch roof which makes it feel much more authentic. They supply complimentary afternoon tea & the breakfast was delicious. Everything was freshly cooked & nothing was too much trouble. We just wished we had booked for longer & hopefully we will return next year for a week. The golf course is also fantastic with brilliant service offered by all the golf club staff. Buggies are delivered & picked up from the lodge & are spotlessly clean with ice boxes, club cleaner, card, pencil & tees. You even get your clubs cleaned half way round. This has to have been the best golfing experience we have had in S.Africa & we have done a lot!!!! A gem worth going out of your way for.

Room Tip: They are all the same overlooking the Links golf course

Perfect lodge with perfect services in a small town with pretty houses and lovely beaches. A must for everybody who likes challenging golf courses. The golf course was in perfect shape and not too crowded.

As a tour Operator it is essential for us that we can recommend places like St. Francis Golf Lodge. Elma, the Manager takes care of the premises as it would be her own. Thjis is always the best sign for Service Quality.
We are happy to work together with Elma and her Team.

Just brilliant: lovely rooms, well appointed and modern feel to them, a lovely eating and sitting area and a manager, Elma, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Would rush back if my wife had not found the golf course a tad on the tough side!

Room Tip: Room 1 is larger than the others but has no view of the course...
