Simola Golf & Country Estate was conceived as one of South Africa’s most desirable golfing destinations.
Attractions on the 325 hectare estate include the Simola Hotel, Country Club & Spa; an 18-hole, par-72, Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course (designed by the Golden Bear himself); and the exclusive River Club - where home-owners and guests enjoy swimming, paddling, fishing and birding on the peaceful Knysna River, and in the indigenous Knysna forests.
Situated high on the hills above Knysna, Simola enjoys sweeping views down the Knysna River valley, and across the Knysna Estuary to the Knysna Heads and the Indian Ocean beyond - and equally dramatic vistas towards the Outeniqua Mountains to the north.
Simola Golf Course
Simola’s Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is living proof of just how great ‘Golf’s Greatest Champion’ really is when it comes to designing with nature.
Set in probably the most scenic town in Africa, situated lower than the ridges that surround it - and therefore untroubled by the wind that plagues so may coastal courses - and boasting an unusual configuration of five par-5s and five par-3s, Simola offers challenging and rewarding golf for pros and high-handicap players alike.
