Simola Hotel Country Club and Spa
Located high up in the hills above the Garden Route town of Knysna , Simola Golf & Country Estate is a world apart. Fairways merge seamlessly with lush indigenous vegetation and forests creating an evocative vista of undulating green hills and dales descending gently down to the Knysna River.
From its vantage point, the 325-hectare Estate looks out a spectacular
panorama encompassing the full expanse of the Knysna Lagoon, all the way to the
Heads and beyond to the sea. It is here in this sheltered haven that you may
enjoy superb investments, golf, 5-Star accommodation, sumptuous meals and even a
pampering at our Spa.
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.
