State of the art golf courses
Knysna is well known in the golfing fraternity for state of the art golf courses such as Pezula and Simola. If you are a golf lover, be sure to add Knysna onto your itinerary. For the spouse, both golf estates offer first class spa packages.
Pezula Golf Course is a championship course and caters for the confident golfer. The fact that the first hole is Stroke Index 1 is a clue as to what is to come. There are no easy holes and to make any sort of a score you need to be fit, be able to hit a long drive and have mental strength & endurance ..it’s tough but is a course set in stunning scenery that should not be missed if you are in the area.
It is a very well maintained course kept in immaculate condition ..the greens are hard to read and are like bowling greens, many heavily bunkered. There are some wonderful views and lots of water so take a stack of old balls as you will lose quite a few!
A team of stewards are on hand to get you started, prepare your buggy and take your clubs back to the car at the finish. There is a decent pro-shop and large bar to reward your efforts.
Whatever your score, and however you’ve fared, you will have played proper golf!
Simola Golf Course is also well known. This course is in incredible condition and has stunning views all over. The layout has some serious altitude changes and the holes are very stretched out, so a cart is mandatory. Also mandatory is taking a giant bag of spare balls as if the wind is blowing or if you hit it vaguely sideways. Simola offers “golf and stay” package which are well worth the expensive to enjoy luxury 5 star treatment and an excellent golfing experience.
