Dear members.

 

Allow us firstly to thank you as President, Vice President and Club Captain of Port St Johns Golf Club for your membership. I know that some of you are now members for many years. Thank you. Without you we can not possibly keep our club going.

 

On the administrative side, after many queries, we need to confirm that we have appointed Golferscard International to handle the administrative side of the club from June this year. Due to Committee members moving away from Port St Johns and not being able to serve on the committee, we negotiated a mutually benificial deal with them. With them we are also working on a new look for our website that will soon be activated.

 

Once again we thank you for your membership.

 

Enjoy your golf!

Best wishes for you and your loved ones.

 

Dries van der Merwe. (President)

Yongama Quma. (Vice President)

Jonathan Smith. (Club Captain)

The Port St Johns Golf Course lies in a natural amphitheatre formed by densely forested sand dunes only 150 meters from where the mighty

Umzimvubu River meets the Indian Ocean between the majestic Mount Sullivan and Mount Thessiger. Separating the course from sea and river is a sand dune system on which the ruins of the once great Cape Hermes Hotel are situated.

The golf course is a challenging course that was zoned (In the deeds office) as a Golf Course in 1907. But it was developed in the 1880’s by the first jailer and magistrate with the labour of prisoners. The jail was then situated where our Health Clinic is today.

The first hole (our current number 7) was completed in 1887 with the rest of the basic outline completed in

1888. It is a short course in today’s standards, consisting of six par fours and three par threes. Overall just over two kilometers long, (longest par 4 is 330 m, shortest 237m) it challenges all long drivers to go for the greens on most par fours, but will see you out of bounds for 10 meters off target!

Twenty seven different “T” boxes see that the course can be played back to back with enough variety. Very undulating with never a level

stance, it is the longest course in the smallest

acreage in South Africa with shouts of “fore!” reverberating on golf days. Keen competition and fun is our watchword during golf tournaments!

The views from the “T” boxes and greens are amazing over the rest of the course, the river mouth and ocean. Some are tucked into dense forests with abundant bird life that includes the rarest of all, the highly endangered Cape Parrot, Paradise Flycatchers, Knysna Lourie, Nerina

Or lying unplayable in thick bush!

Trogon and many more!
