The magnificence of the site inspired golfing legend Jack Nicklaus to design a masterpiece amidst the rolling hills of the Simola Estate.
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 AfricaÂ premier golfing destinations.
ItÂs also the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course on the Garden Route, reflecting the maestroÂs 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, itÂs 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-fives and five par threes 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.
