ABOUT US

Little Walmer Golf about us newRecognised as Port Elizabeth's premier 9 hole golf course, Walmer Golf Club, commonly known as Little Walmer, lies in the heart of the city, just minutes away from some of Port Elizabeth's top beaches, hotels, and guest houses.

 

Walmer Golf Club was founded in 1897, making it one of the oldest clubs in South Africa. The 9 hole course boasts 18 tee boxes and a surrounding golf estate which provide for a variety of challenging holes, depending on the wind direction. 

 

The signature par 3 6th hole measures only 127 meters, but requires an accurate tee shot to avoid the treacherous pond which extends along the front and right of the green. 

 

During the establishment of the Golf Estate in 2005, the clubhouse was rebuilt along with the upgrade of 5 of the 9 greens, creating more undulations and providing a more stable putting surface. Due to an unforeseen tragedy, the top floor of the clubhouse burnt down in 2016, lending to the need for renovation and an upgrade to the facilities.

 

The spacious Clubhouse provides a warm welcome to all members and visitors alike, catering for small or large groups with its modern facilities and friendly staff. The Clubhouse, in partnership with To Dine For, caters for numerous tournaments, functions and celebrations such as tour groups, corporate golf days, social gatherings, conferences and weddings ranging from 20 to 200 people dependent on function setup.
