Golfing at Humewood Golf Club

Designed by Colonel S.V. Hotchkin

Humewood Golf Club is located in the coastal city of Gqeberha (formerly Port Elizabeth), in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Nestled along the shores of the Indian Ocean, the club is renowned for its natural beauty and links-style layout. The course is just a short drive from the city center and easily accessible from Port Elizabeth International Airport, making it a convenient destination for both local and international golfers.

Humewood Golf Club was designed by the esteemed Colonel S.V. Hotchkin, a renowned golf course architect known for his expertise in creating traditional links courses. Hotchkin’s design philosophy emphasizes strategic play and the natural flow of the land, resulting in a course that harmonizes with its coastal surroundings. His thoughtful approach to course design ensures that Humewood remains a true test of golfing skill and a memorable experience for all who play it.

Signature Holes

Hole 4: This par 3 hole is one of the most iconic on the course, featuring a long, narrow green flanked by bunkers and exposed to the coastal winds. Precision and control are essential to land the ball on the green and avoid the surrounding hazards.

Hole 13: A challenging par 5, hole 13 requires strategic shot placement and careful navigation of multiple bunkers and dunes. The fairway doglegs around natural vegetation, and the approach to the green demands accuracy to avoid the surrounding sand traps.

Hole 18: The finishing hole, a par 4, offers a dramatic conclusion to the round. With a long, sweeping fairway that narrows towards the green and is protected by bunkers on both sides, it tests golfers’ skills and nerve while providing stunning views of the coastline.

Golfers at Humewood can expect a classic and challenging links golf experience. The 18-hole, par 72 championship course spans over 6,629 meters (7,249 yards) and is characterized by its undulating fairways, fast greens, and strategically placed bunkers. The natural coastal terrain and strong sea breezes add an extra layer of difficulty, requiring precision and adaptability. The layout is designed to test golfers of all skill levels, with its rolling dunes and indigenous coastal vegetation providing both aesthetic appeal and a formidable challenge.
