The Simola Golf Estate has been sculpted into the hills above the picturesque Garden Route town of Knysna and occupies 325 hectares of breath taking landscape that overlook the enchanted forests, town, lagoon and Indian Ocean that lay out before it. The courses location has proved ideal in that the ridges and peaks of the area have provided exceptional protection from the dominant coastal winds that may throw your game off on other courses.
Well bunkered, watered and filled with wildlife roaming in from the surrounding forests, the Simola Golf Estate is an eighteen-hole championship course signed off by the Golden Bear himself and is in fact the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course along the Garden Route.
Fairways are lush, textured affairs that undulate through the run of the course whilst greens are an absolute pleasure to play on. An eclectic mix of par 3ís and 5ís has discerned this course from others and provides a fresh and welcome challenge to all levels of golfing ability.
Make no mistake, Simola is a South African must-play and as visitors are welcomed whole-heartedly we encourage you to take time-out on your next Garden Route adventure to head into the hills of Knysna and enjoy all that they have to offer. As a premiere estate you can expect first class facilities and state of the art technology to be incorporated here.
