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!

This is a premium priced course which sits in a fabulous location. The quality of the layout is wonderful but the greens were pretty rough for so early in the season. The mandatory halfway house stop was very average with less than friendly staff and uninteresting food - but for this my rating would have been at least good if... More

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.

Simola is a very nice course. There are some basic holes and some very mouth watering challenges like 8 and 9 for example. Negative points are the Carts. You need one which is always a distraction for the traditionalist It would however be a difficult course to walk.
