Humewood Golf Club

39 Marine Dr, Summerstrand, Gqeberha, 6001, South Africa

Humewood Golf Club in South Africa is celebrated as one of the nation’s premier golfing destinations, often ranked just behind the illustrious Durban Country Club. Esteemed for its authentic links layout, Humewood has been the proud host of numerous PGA events, including the prestigious South African Open. Its location near the heart of Port Elizabeth, nestled within the Eastern Cape, belies the secluded and natural experience it offers, with very little sign of human encroachment visible from the course itself.

Designed by Colonel SV Hotchkin in 1929, Humewood is distinguished by its challenging terrain, featuring thick coastal bush, and the natural undulations of swales, humps, and hollows that define classic links courses. This course is not just a test of golfing skill but also a retreat into nature, where players can encounter an array of wildlife, including plovers, small buck, and other animals amidst the serene backdrop of coastal bush.

Humewood Golf Club’s unique blend of challenging play and natural beauty, combined with its rich history and status as a championship course, makes it a must-visit for golf enthusiasts traveling to or residing in South Africa.
