This is one of our favourite courses anywhere in the world. The views down the Knysna River & out towards the Knysna Heads is simply spectacular. So, if you're golf isn't up to scratch, at least the scenery will be! The course is a typical Nicklaus design with loads of bunkers but, if you can avoid them, you can score... More

On our annual golf trip, one of our must do's was a return to Simola golf course. Previous visits were great! What a disappointment this time round! The welcoming was non existent. The staff were unfriendly and non caring-except for Halfway house where the people were friendly. The golf course was splendid as always but the attention to detail was... More

Most courses in South Africa are top quality but this stands out because of it's stunning views, high in the hills back from the coast. In very good condition and very playable whatever handicap. Nice people too.

I was lucky enough to be taken to Simola several time by a friend who is a member. First thing to strike me was ,"what a stunningly beautiful place". The scenery from the club house is magnificent. The club house is at least" five star" and the course itself truly awe inspiring, easily the most difficult I have ever tried... More

I played Oubaai, Pinnacle Point and Pezula on my trip and they are all must play courses but I really loved Simola. Pinnacle is just the most breathtaking course but Simola is the most playable course. It is in the hills of Knysna so I think it is protected from the wind to a degree which makes it more playable.... More
