Simola Golf & Country EstateKnysna, South Africa
Private Golf Club
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.
The hotel and clubhouse have uninterrupted views of the tranquil blue lagoon with the famous Knysna Heads framing the avenue to the sparkling Indian Ocean. A turn of the head and a glorious overview of the Knysna River nestling comfortably in a forested valley adds to the picture postcard beauty, while the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course meanders unobtrusively into nature’s historical landscape adding scenic and sporting value for both residents and visitors.
