Simola Golf & Country Estate is pure bliss.

Appreciative of the superlative natural beauty on the Estate, the developers, right from the beginning, envisaged only top class facilities to compliment the surroundings and add to the experience.
Late in 2002, the Osner Group, an Eastern Cape-based construction and property development company in partnership with the Kat Leisure hospitality group who develop and manage leisure industry properties, acquired 213 hectares of prime real estate high up in the hills above Knysna. 
The site inspired golf legend Jack Nicklaus to design a course, and Golf Data, South Africa`s leading golf course construction and maintenance company, was contacted to create the Golden Bear`s vision. 
Driven by Mr. Avril Kaschula of Kat Leisure, a long hitter with a firm grip and a passion to succeed, the Simola Golf & Country Estate emerged early 2005 as one of the most beautiful golf courses in the country with a residential estate offering exceptional investment value as well as a quality lifestyle opportunity.
Located high up in the hills above the Garden Route town of Knysna (South Africa`s favourite holiday town), Simola Golf & Country Estate is a world apart. 
Fairways merge seamlessly with lush indigenous vegetation and forests creating an evocative vista of undulating green hills and dales descending gently down to the Knysna River.
From its vantage point, the 325-hectare Estate looks out a spectacular panorama encompassing the full expanse of the Knysna Lagoon, all the way to the Heads and beyond to the sea. 
It is here in this sheltered haven that you may enjoy superb investments, golf, 5-Star accommodation, sumptuous meals and even a pampering at our Spa.

Pezula Golf Course

 Designed by David Dale and Ronald Fream, the Pezula Championship Course is spectacularly situated atop the famous Knysna Heads, and this high vantage point allows for majestic panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, the Knysna lagoon and the Outeniqua Mountain Range. Knysna, a Garden Route gem, is known for its enchanting beauty and the Pezula Championship Course is right at its epicentre.

The landscape remains scenic and unspoiled and the quality of the fairways and the greens adds to the pleasure of playing on this course which has moods as varied as the hilly and rugged terrain it stands on. There are three signature holes, the 13th through 15th and they are all on the cliff that overlooks the Indian Ocean. The 5 different tee options cater to all golfing levels and the course, that is difficult to navigate on foot, provides golf carts. The downhill holes, matched with classic sweeping fairways winding through forested areas, make for an unforgettable round of golf.
