Designed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus – the St Francis Links has put St Francis Bay on the golf-map and has captured the imagination of all golfers who simply love the game. Jack himself describes the course as ‘the best links course I have ever designed’. The course demands a wide range of shots because of its unprotected exposure to the elements, its undulating and often unpredictable terrain, the fine coastal grasses and firmness of soil. It may not be as "pretty" as a traditional course, but it possesses an untamed raw beauty that is both inspiring and challenging. A true Links.
The Clubhouse - considered to be one of South Africa’s best on-course facilities - is just a two-minute stroll from the Lodge. Besides The Links Restaurant, Jack’s Bar and the Halfway House, the facility also boasts a brand new conference room, two lounges, the golf shop, locker rooms for players and an excellent Spa with fully-trained therapists ready to offer signature treatments. A swing by the golf academy will allow you to finesse your technique.
St Francis Links voted one of the "Top 10 Golf Courses in S.A." by Golf Digest.
