Garden Route Golfing Heaven
Knysna and Plett are two of South Africa’s top golfing destinations and boast some world class golf courses.
Pezula Championship Golf Course adjacent to Pezula Resort Hotel & Spa is a sweeping spectacle of fairways and greens rolling through the pristine Southern Cape landscape. The breathtaking, award-winning 18-hole course which was designed by David Dale and Ronald Fream of GolfPlan USA, rates amongst the best and the most scenic golf courses in the world.
Keeping your head down at Simola Golf Estate 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 Africa’s premier golfing destinations. It’s also the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course on the Garden Route, reflecting the maestro’s philosophy of attuning the layout and design to the natural lie of the land.
Both Simola and Pezula are complemented by top 5 star hotel and spa establishments.
The Knysna Golf course, celebrating its centenary celebrations this year, might not have the views of its luxurious neighbours, but is a testing challenge among water hazards and tree-lined fairways, close to the Knysna estuary. An easy walk, it’s a pleasant club with excellent club house facilities.
In Plettenberg Bay golfers have a choice of the Plettenberg Bay Country Club or the Goose Valley Golf Club.
Goose Valley Golf Club is situated in pristine surroundings, only 4km from Plettenberg Bay, bordering on the Keurbooms Lagoon. This magnificent golf estate offers a splendid Gary Player-designed 72 par, 18-hole signature golf course in the heart of the Garden Route and is ranking within the top 18 best conditioned courses in SA. Golfers will experience breathtaking views of the Keurbooms Lagoon, the Indian Ocean, the spectacular Tsitsikamma Mountains and the famous Robberg Peninsula. The club house includes a spacious, elegant restaurant and bar with a delightful choice of light meals.
Plett Country Club has an 18 hole par 72 golf course set in a private nature reserve as well as 2 magnificent bowling greens and 4 all weather tennis courts. The highly rated course is a very popular tourist destination.
Knysna or Plett is also ideally situated to use as a base while playing other famous courses along the Garden Route. Mossel Bay and George are within easy reach.
In addition to golf, the area also has a multitude of other activities to offer, making it definitely the place to come back to after a day of golf.
