The Port St Johns Golf club was established at the turn of the previous century (According to the National Archives it was zoned as a golf course in 1907) and thrived until the independence of the Transkei in the seventies. It is a nine hole course with 28 different T Boxes.


The Port St Johns Golf Course lies in a natural amphitheatre formed by formed by densely forested sand dunes only 150 meters from where the mighty Umzimvubu River meets the Indian Ocean between the majestic Mount Sullivan and Mount Thessigers mountains. Separating the course from sea and river is a sand dune system on which the ruins of the once great Cape Hermes Hotel are situated.


The Golf Course is a challenging course. It is a short course in today's standards, consisting of six par fours and three par threes. Overall just over 2 Km's long, (Longest hole 330 m, shortest 237m) it challenge all long drivers to go for the greens on most par fours, but will see you out of bounds for 20 meters of target! Or lying unplayable in thick bush! Twenty seven different "T" boxes see that the course can be played back to back with enough variety. Very undulating with never a level stance, it is the longest course in the smallest acreage in South Africa with shouts of "fore! reverberating on golf days! Keen competition and fun is our watchword during golf tournaments!


The views from the "T" boxes and greens are amazing over the rest of the course and the river mouth and ocean. Some are tucked into dense forests with abundant birdlife that includes the rarest of all, the highly endangered cape parrot, paradise flycatchers, nerina trogons and many more!


All round the Port St Johns Golf Club is a wonderful place to play a game of golf in beautiful surroundings, with birds serenading you and the sound of the waves lulling you into a tranquil state.
