The Five Royals Golf Tournament started in 1989 as The Four Royals. The tournament was one of the main attractions held to celebrate Port Alfred Municipality’s centenary and the Presidents and Captains from Royal Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban were invited to compete. Royal Harare was invited to take part 15 years later so now the annual gathering attracts five Royal Golf Clubs and more than 100 visiting players, making it one of Port Alfred’s premier tourist events.

The Five Royals is played over three rounds, two at Royal Port Alfred (Friday and Sunday) and one at the Fish River Sun on the Saturday. Port Alfred has a distinctly linksy feel to it with hard greens and fairways and lots of coastal bush. The Fish River Sun golf course has rightly been thought of as one of the country’s better courses for many years and our visitors always enjoy their round there. The format is a Better Ball Stableford.
