Simola Golf Course

Keeping your head down at Simola can be a challenge; simply because the views around the course are awe-inspiring, and with this, it is clear to see why Simola takes its place as one of South Africa's premier golfing destinations. It's also the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course on the Garden Route, reflecting the maestro's philosophy of attuning the layout and design to the natural lie of the land. The course offers challenging and rewarding golf amidst spectacular scenery.


Set below the high ridges, Simola Golf Course is free from the wind that so often plagues coastal courses. Fairways flow with the natural undulating contours of the terrain and the unusual configuration of five par 5's and five par 3's adds a new dimension to the game. It's par for the course that every hole boasts exceptional views; either out across the Knysna Lagoon all the way to the Heads or over the picturesque Knysna River as it twists and turns through the valley below.

It goes without saying that a course as great as Simola should have a club house to match. The Simola Golf Clubhouse forms part of the recently opened Simola Hotel. Guests and members have access to hotel facilities like our gourmet restaurant, indoor pool and Wellness Centre. The Simola Golf Clubhouse also offers spacious changing rooms, and the beautifully appointed lounge will comfort the needs of each of our prestigious members. Of course there's a Proshop too – with state-of-the-art golfing equipment, stylish apparel and a whole host of items to make your golf experience more enjoyable.


From Plettenberg Bay / Knysna C.B.D: When leaving Knysna on the Main Street (N2), turn right into Old Cape Road (around 200m from the Waterfront Drive traffic lights). From George / Sedgefield: Drive towards Knysna (N2), over the white bridge, and the length of the Lagoon road. Turn left into Old Cape Road after the Welbedacht turn-off. From the turn-off: Follow Old Cape Road away from the Lagoon for approximately 3.5km. At the traffic circle bear right (opposite the Eastford entrance) and follow the road up to the Simola Hotel entrance (approximately 2km from the circle).
