Simola Golf Course
Golf course overview
The Simola Golf Estate on the hills above picturesque Knysna is a breathtaking experience that combines achingly beautiful views of the enchanting forests, town, lagoon and Indian Ocean that lay out before it.
The Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, which was officially opened by the ‘Golden Bear’ himself in September 2005, is only one of 5 Nicklaus signature courses in South Africa, and definitely the most scenic.
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.
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.
