The course has too many Disney like golf holes which are maybe nice to play once but not for a real golf course. Example is the second hole with a tee shot drop of maybe 60 meters. It may seem look nice but has nothing to do with a golf hole. A simple drive and than 100 meters in; easy... More

Service was first class from the moment our clubs were whisked away until they were returned cleaned outside the lobby. Very good club house.

One of the best SA courses, not too easy to play. Need a buggy. Some good views, but not as good as the views on Pezula. I also felt staff was a bit uninterested, but maybe that was only on the day we were there. Will be back. Still great!

Simola GC is really a special golf course in that it is very forgiving in many ways while not being at all "gimmicky" like some estate golf courses tend to be. A really good test of golf for the good to average golfer. The greens are really exceptional and manicuring of the course great.
