Simola Golf & Country Estate

General Information

Keeping your head down at Simola can be a challenge; simply because the views around the course are awe-enspiring, 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, it’s 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.

In Knysna, a town that’s mad-keen on golf, you can feel the growing excitement and the keen anticipation. It’s the one topic on everyone’s lips: "Did you hear? Simola’s open for play!"

The Golden Bear’s 18-hole championship course at Simola has been created to challenge the professional and inspire the amateur.
