The beauty of the South African coast meets the expert designs of golfing legend Jack Nicklaus at the inspiring St. Francis Links. Set near the picturesque town of St. Francis Bay, the 18-hole championship golf course and indulgent activities offer a truly unforgettable golfing adventure.
Reminiscent of classic courses in Scotland and Ireland, St. Francis Links has been acclaimed as “The Best New Course in South Africa” by Golf Digest and recognized as a “Five Star Golfing Experience” by Compleat Golfer for three consecutive years. The natural geography of slopes and plains has been preserved, proving a challenge for even the most experienced golfers. Navigate the dunes and drive through the cherished Millwood trees on the front nine. Breathtaking panoramas of the sea, St. Francis Bay village and distant northern mountains prove a gorgeous backdrop for the elevated back nine. Two-time PGA Professional of the Year, Jeff Clause, works with an expert staff to craft a completely custom golfing outing for discerning players.
