SA Open Golf Championship 2010

SA Open: History

 The year 1903 is recognised as the official birth of the South African Open Championship. It was first played for in 1893 but was really only a series of exhibition matches between very few professionals. But in 1903 the championship was contested over 36 holes in Port Elizabeth.
On 5 June 2008 Humewood Golf Club was dealt a bitter blow  when it was announced that SA Airways had pulled the plug on their sponsorship of the country‘s biggest golf tournament, the SA Open.
Following the huge success of the South African Open at Humewood in 2006, which saw record crowds line the fairways of the links, SAA announced that it would bring the championship back to Humewood in 2010.

But now that SAA has withdrawn from its association after six years, it seems Humewood‘s chances of hosting the tournament are very slim.

The 2010 SA Open is taking place at Durban Country Club in Durban.

Bring your golf clubs along on your next visit to Port Elizabeth and enjoy a superb round of golf on our amazing Humewood “Links” course.

For Port Elizabeth accommodation: Homeleigh Halt Guest House in Walmer, situated 14 km’s from the golf course, invites you to “be our guest.”

Port Elizabeth Accommodation

Port Elizabeth has always fondly been referred to as The Windy City, The Friendly City or The 10 Minute City……….nowdays however the 10 minutes does increase to 20 minutes during peak times.

Nevertheless, nothing is very far from anywhere in PE, so stay where everything is otherwise close at hand, for example Walmer Park Shopping Centre, Moffett on Main Shopping Centre.

Walmer is so conveniently situated with easy access to all areas.

When next in town, we invite you to “be our guest.”

Experience true Eastern Cape Hospitality, feel pampered and very special.

Accommodation: Homeleigh Halt Guest House, Bed & Breakfast or self catering.
