St Francis Golf Break
The St Francis Bay Golf Club offers competitions every Wednesday and Saturday. Ladies are more than welcome.
In the early 14th century, either in Scotland's eastern Lothians or in the Netherlands, where the game was called Kalvin, golf began.
The links land was the marginal land lying between the beaches and the arable fields and only good for grazing sheep and rabbits and bleaching cloth.
Open to the elements, the game was played on the links grasses between the dunes and the bush.
St Francis Links may not have been grazing land for sheep and rabbits, but a natural course between the beach and arable land it is. Jack Nicklaus has had the pleasure of taking Mother Nature’s best piece of links land and signed his name to something unique. St Francis Links challenges all who play it and rewards those who respect it.
The layout combines every element of shot making with its undulating terrain, greens and surrounds as well as its variation in length and direction.
The bunkers look as though they have been ploughed out of the land. The bunkering truly defines the quality and character of St Francis Links. Others courses have a links "look". Here you will see what separates St Francis Links from the rest – a consistent look throughout. One will agree that, almost from the opening shot, St Francis Links carries a look and feel that breathes history from bygone times.
The shape greens' shape comes from the natural movement of the land. The greens have simply been placed on top of the sand, changing shape as the wind changed its mind. Some are more undulating than others. All putting surfaces and green surrounds present a mental and physical test.
St Francis Links is South Africa’s Pure Links!
