I could go on and on about Knysna Golf Club - but, in brief, I rate it as THE BEST! It hasn't got the glamour of Simola and Pezula but it's an equally tough course, on the flat with lots of water hazards. The new...More

I have really enjoyed playing this golf course but as a visitor be wary of playing at the weekend. My midweek experience was good but at the weekend visitors are not welcome. Our pre-booked tee time was completely ignored and we were left to jostle...More

This is not Pezula or Simola but for a nice round of golf in the area, we found the course well presented and all the staff helpful and welcoming. The half-way house was just right for purpose and the pro-shop helpful and good value.

As for most golf in South Africa the golf is so inexpensive for what you get. This course is ideal for walking and is not too strenuous - highly recommended.
