“Not a round of golf but a golfing experience!”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

Our visit to this pearl of KwaZulu Natal was welcomed with valey parking and a welcome drink! A well stocked pro shop with knowledgable polite staff got us off to a good start. Our bags were put on our buggies and our names were visable on the buggy. The halfway house had a good menu and once again polite staff. The 18 holes championship course is rightly rated the best in KZN. it was an absolute pleasure to play the course. We will definately revisit whenever the opportunity is there again.

“Superb layout and well maintained”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

Awesome location. Great test of golf. Most enjoyable.

The weather can be the one disappointing factor so plan your trip well and out of the rainy season but this venue is top class.

“Top Golf Course”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

If you ever get the opportunity to play golf at Zimbali, grab it with both hands. The course is very scenic and in fantastic condition. It is one of the best golf courses that I have ever played on, I highly recommend you experience a round of golf on this course, it will be a real treat.

“Excellent golf course”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Played golf the first time in Durban and was really impressed. The golf course was in a good shape due to good care. Excellent fairways, beautiful landscape, friendly and attentive staff, few people above all for a reasonable value.
For sure I'll be back!
