It is approximately 1,2 km away from the Indian Ocean, and the setting lends itself to breathtaking glimpses of this massive expanse of water.

It is a 185km from Port Elizabeth (2 hours drive), a 100km from East London (1 hour's drive) and 27km from Port Alfred.A sporting paradise of fishing, hiking and superior golf only a wedge away. We invite you to experience it!

After not having played at the Fish River Golf Course for a number of years, I returned with great anticipation, only to be terribly disappointed at the condition of the course, particularly the greens which were once like billiard tables.

I'm by no means a golf expert. I play once a year or so and enjoy the experience of the course and the banter. Fish River has been my best ever experience. Take my advice. On a good day book the last tee off around 13:30 and get a cart (for 2 carts and 3 golfers it was R850) then tee off just around 13:40. They will let you play till there is no more light but all other golfers will have finished their round by the time you get to the 9th meaning you have the entire course to yourself from that point onwards and it is spectacular. Wild buck. Bird life. Rivers and trees. And the sun slowly setting makes for an amazing round. We did the 18 holes in 3 hours so were done by 16:40 just as the autum sun was setting on the 18th hole and all the animals were coming out to graze.

The hotel is great, but it it obvious that this former grand hotel now caters rather for timeshare-like deals. The golf course is great and the setting amazing.

Was staying at the hotel and met up with friends for a round of golf. Great layout and in great condition. Will definitely play again given the opportunity. Pity about the wind but obviously that was nobody's fault
