Dominated by a vast shopping mall and adjoining hospital, the small suburb of Greenacres in Port Elizabeth is the ideal location for visitors seeking convenience. The suburb’s commercial section consists of office parks, small businesses, medical services and an excellent public transport network, while the residential area’s attractive homes are lined with wide, grassed sidewalks under shady trees. A large green lung runs through the suburb.
Port Elizabeth lies on the south eastern coastline of South Africa. It’s one of the largest cities in the country, however, it’s affectionately known as the 15-minute city, as all suburbs – including Greenacres – and beaches are within a short distance of the airport and city centre.
The Port Elizabeth Golf Club is separated from Greenacres to the south by the R102 highway which is also the most direct route to Port Elizabeth’s sunny beaches.
