Zimbali Golf Course, Ballito
Zimbali Golf Course, Port Zimbali, Ballito, Dolphin Coast, KwaZulu Natal / Zimbali is well known for its stunning 18-hole golf course. It offers a challenging round of golf of world-class standards and stunning views. The Zimbali Golf Coastal Resort Course varies. Starting off with a coastal links feel, the course takes a dramatic turn through rough rolling wetlands and ends up in the Zimbali Coastal forest. The course is also a tough walk but fortunately golf carts are compulsory!
Most of the tees are high on the side of hills or sand dunes. The fairways cut through the valley and the greens, seemingly always at the bottom of the next hill. This makes judging distance a time consuming task, especially for first those playing this golf course for the first timetimers to the course!
Tom Wieskopf, the designer of this Northern KwaZulu-Natal masterpiece and past winner of the British and SA Open championship, stays true to his philosophy of providing a fair challenge to golfers of any level.
Golf carts are compulsory and available for hire, the Club’s Pro Shop has all the golfers necessities and the clubhouse offers a bar and restaurant.
