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!

I have played here a number of times and loved it each time - one of the best in the area - always a great experience and one of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. Great views and always well maintained. Don't go into the rough!

There is nothing quite quite like the Buffet Breakfast at Fish River Sun!!! Yes, the hotel has had and is past its finer glory days BUT more polite, helpful staff you could not wish to meet. Although we arrived for breakfast 15 minutes after closing time, the very kind lady at the door to the dining room realised we had come a long way and kindly let us in! We were so thankful.
The breakfast was as good as ever and the service outstanding. It sounds a lot - R95 - for breakfast, but it isn't. Trust me when I say that the choice is tremendous. We were also offered a drive down to the bar at the river mouth and back with the ranger and what a treat that was. Free of charge. A great, enjoyable visit.

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.
