Keeping one's head down at the Simola Hotel & Golf Estate in Knysna, South Africa, can be a challenge, simply because the views around this magnificent golf 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.

The Simola golf course is 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 Simola golf course in Knysna along the Garden Route offers challenging and rewarding golf amidst spectacular scenery. Set below the high ridges, this 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.

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.

Golf Course facilities: The Simola Golf Clubhouse

The Simola Golf Clubhouse forms part of the Simola Hotel. Guests and members have access to hotel facilities like the gourmet restaurant, the indoor swimming pool and the exclusive Wellness Centre.
