Great rooms with a view ( Golf course with the ocean in the distance ). Friendly staff, nice restaurant. I loved it and won't be staying anywhere else from now on when I'm in the Knysna area

This is an exceptional experience in terms of the course for a golfer & the golf lover. The course is practically impossible without curt. The view from each hole is a discovery and one must visit this course in Knysna

Our stay at the club was hugely enjoyable. We were accommodated in a luxurious apartment with superb views over Knysna and its lagoon. Food in the restaurant was good but the service very slow.

We bought a "golf and stay" package at Simola and will certainly do it again if we have the opportunity. The accommodation was fabulous and the golf course is well maintained and interesting. This is a course that must be played with a cart, there...More

Despite the recent wildfire causing extensive damage in the area, there was little obvious sign around the course itself, which remains one of my favourites anywhere. So while the views across the hills and down to the bay weren't as lush as previously, there still...More
