Hermanus (East) - Golf Course in South Africa

About Hermanus (East)


The remote fishing village of hermanus at walker bay is also home to a very nice golf course, which has evolved from a simple 9-hole layout to a modern-day, top-spec 27-hole complex over a 100-year stretch.

Hermanus golf club was established in 1907, and in 1937, the original 9-hole course was expanded to a complete 18-hole course. In 1952, robert grimsdell remodeled it, and that's how life stayed on the golf course for the next 50 years, with homes built in phases along the perimeter.

All of that changed in 2004 when fernkloof estate, the golf club's residential arm, announced plans to develop over 300 homes in and around an adjacent plot of land, with renowned architect peter matkovich including an additional 9 holes (as well as improving the existing 18-hole layout). The east course, which includes holes 1-18, is the first and improved configuration. The north course consists of holes 19-27 and 1-9, while the south course consists of holes 10-18 and 19-27.

Matkovich also added additional water features and a variety of rugged outcroppings to the current alignment, as well as some subtle mounding to improve depth. These changes, along with new greens, longer tees, and better bunkering, have helped hermanus to keep up with the times and confidently face the future.
