Your Simola Golf and Country Estate Experience:
The 18-hole Simola Golf Course is the first to be designed by Jack Nicklaus on the Garden Route. Created to challenge the professional and inspire the amateur, this South African golf course is wind free and has spectacular views from every hole.
Following the natural lie of the land, Jack Nicklaus has attuned the Simola Golf Course design to flow with and enhance the beauty of the surroundings. Located high above Knysna, below the ridges, the course has the unusual configuration of five par 5's and five par 3's.
On a South Africa holiday, visitors can now play on this signature course, one of an elite group which is internationally recognised. Despite the sheer pleasure of the Simola Golf Course fairways, visitors will find it hard not to gaze at the views of the Knysna River, Lagoon and spectacular Heads.
