A number of holes and the club house at The Zimbali Golf Resort has been renovated and it has been a great job done. The clubhouse patio's have been increased and new furniture has been installed. On the course, hole 17 has had a total workover and is now more challenging to play and looks really great from the elevated... More

We played twice at Zimbali during DEC14. The course was well kempt, with fast greens and clean bunkers. The first round we asked a caddie to join us to help us with the blind holes. The second round we walked without a caddie, which was doable. Compared to European prices the price-quality balance is OK. The club house is beautiful.... More

What a magnificent golf course. Very impressed with the greens and fairways. Highly recommended. Best part is that there was no complaints about my sons playing (9 and 6 years) infact they were encouraged by all the staff. Well done to all involved with the upkeep. Highlight is the numerous Bushbuck spotted around the course.

Best of all they served us an excellent vegan meal for halfway as well as our evening meal at prize giving. As with most restaurant in the area, if you phone you let them know they will... More

We played the course in July when the ground was hard and dry but the course was still playable. Excellent condition fairways, fast greens and surrounding areas beautiful manicured. The wildlife on the coarse was stunning. Club house staff friendly and efficient with cold beer served on decking with a view. Take plenty of balls and keep your belongings hidden.... More
