Definitely not the most beautiful ball in the world but without a doubt one of the most beautiful courses I played. St Francis Links, or SFL as they call it, a real treat on the Garden Route in South Africa.
St Francis Bay is not the usual stop for tourists but well known amongst golfers as Jack Nicklaus is responsible for the course architecture of this hidden gem, which calls itself a proper links course. It’s not “linksy” in the common understanding but features similar characteristics. Links or not, SFL is worth a visit should you be in the Port Elizabeth area – be it for golf or for safari.
