Overview

When the first review was submitted on our behalf, they listed St Francis Links as Jack Nicklaus at St Francis Links IN Port Elizabeth. through pretty good promotion and customer awareness, we have managed to get some great reviews and even the 2014 Certificate of Excellence - rated No. 2 with 5-starts behind the great attraction Shamwari. However, we are located outside Port Elizabeth in St Francis Bay. I am very happy with the reviews; however, if your search St Francis Links in St Francis Bay, you will not find us. If you search attractions, it asked for a city...when I search St Francis Bay, South Africa, St Francis Links will not appear. Please advise how I can maximize my presence with tripadvisor. I am not unhappy - just seeking the best Portal.

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.

Please come back as the 1st nine actually builds into the 2nd nine! Every hole is unique - each with it's own character. Thanks for taking the time to review St Francis Links!

This is the first time I have played CSF. What a pleasure. A difficult course to say the least, especially the greens and when the wind blows - then that is another story. If you are passing by then play a round here and stay...More

This is a wonderful golf course, the whole course is good and there are some outstanding holes, you need to take a few extra golf balls. It really benefits from being played a couple of times, as some of the holes need that experience. Super...More

We played the St. Francis Links three times: the golf course itself is challenging (not for beginners) and with one day of firm wind it was difficult. Very nicely done are the signs giving botanic information, thus making the course interesting for people who join...More
