Simola Golf Course


Located high on the hilltops above Knysna, Simola Golf Course offers truly spectacular views over the town, the lagoon and beyond to the Knysna Heads. The estate encompasses indigenous vegetation and lush forest all the way down to the Knysna River.

Simola is the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course on the Garden Route, and it reflects his philosophy of keeping the natural lie of the land in the layout and design. Set below the high ridges, the course is free from the wind that often affects coastal courses. Fairways flow with the natural contours of the terrain and the unusual configuration of five par 5's and five par 3's adds a new dimension to the game.

The Simola Golf Clubhouse forms part of the recently opened Simola Hotel. Guests and members have access to hotel facilities including a gourmet restaurant, indoor pool and Wellness Centre.

The Simola Golf Clubhouse also offers spacious changing rooms, and a beautifully appointed lounge, There is also a Proshop– with state-of-the-art golfing equipment, stylish apparel and everything else golfers may need. Lessons can also be booked with a professional golf tutor.
