The family accommodation caters for self-caterers. You will find gas braai and convection ovens in the same venue. An excellent health spa is available. You can also enjoy lunch, supper and breakfast at the Simola restaurant. Golfing becomes and extra special treat.

This is a Nicklaus signature golfcourse but unlike i.e. Pearl Valley it is really hilly. Use a buggy. But the design.... Wow!!! The maintenance on tees, fairways and greens are immaculate.

wonderful golf course, challenging but not too difficult. We really enjoyed the front nine especially the par 4 second hole, which is on an elevated tee and has amazing views!

Liked: world class course, views across the bay, excellent layout and all round great course Disliked: Extremely slow players. We got stuck behind 3 groups of 4 players who were incredibly slow. nearly 6 hours for 18 holes. They were definitely out to make a whole day of it.

I have played golf at Simola at least half a dozen times and can honestly say it ranks as one of my favourites. The second hole tee box definitely gives one an amazing view of the fairway some 150meters below and is but one of the many feature holes on the course.

This golf course is very scenic, fun to play, and challenging enough. However, the price is steep. R720-00 for 18 holes. It includes your halfway meal, and a cart. Still, it's pricey. The restaurant is good, and the service is good too. Eat outside at the pool if the weather permits, the view is exceptional.

The course is stunningly pretty and a real test. You need buggies as walks from green to tee can be long and hilly. Beautiful condition despite some heavy rain before we played. Accommodation in the lodges is luxurious.

Very interesting course. Not too easy. Good halfway house. Don´t forget to reserve a cart. You will need it.
