I don't play golf but this time I wish I did ... this is one of the most beautiful golf courses in the whole of South Africa if not the southern hemisphere. Beautifully kept gardens, pristine courses, you can walk or take a caddy car for easy access .... Lounge around on the deck overlooking the beauty of Knysna and... More

The evenings meal and service did not live up to expectations. We were the only people in the resterant and should have had five star service this was not to be. The house wine selected was out of stock. The prices are very much on the high side. The the meal was generally above average. However no ambiance and we... More

An all round great golf experience with friendly staff and good service from all staff and lovely spot for breakfast or lunch. This golf course is attached to 5 star hotel so it has a Spa and gym and accommodation and is child friendly.

A stunning golf course in immaculate condition. Lovely lunch at the halfway house too! My teenage Sons had a great time and loved the golf buggy with the ball cleaner and cool box!!

Fantastic spacious room with commanding view down the valley with several holes of the golf course. We played 5 rounds (once paired with another couple - we play off 14 & 36 handicaps) on this Jack Nicklaus designed course never tiring of the challenging structure & design very suitable to our level. Beautifully manicured & maintained, excellent halfway house. Warm... More

Just driving in through the gates gives an expectation of something special to come. The club house is beautiful. The staff friendly and welcoming, exactly what you would expect from a top class golf estate and club. The views are spectacular and the course immaculate. The course is challenging and I would say daunting but playable for a beginner if... More

A magnificent spa, hotel and golf course. Set in the Knysna hills with a stunning view of the lake, forest and the Knysna heads, make sure to drop by the club house for some drinks and a light lunch - even if golf is not your thing. The scenery is so beautiful, you will end up lingering. The course is... More

Besides the Fancourt courses, Simola is one of my favorite golf courses that I played during my time in South Africa. It is not as spectacular as Pezula which sits right above the ocean. It is set back a little but as it is very high up you can see the Knysna Bay and the ocean in the far back.... More
