Played 18 holes on the fabulous Zimbali golf course. Fairways and greens are in very good condition considering the recent drought and subsequent water restrictions. Certainly is a championship layout and a must play when visiting the region. Reserve your T time well in advance and ensure sufficient time from a travel perspective As you need to register at the...

Beautiful golf corse, well maintained. Proshop and restaurant relevant for the place. DR a bit remote, in general insufficient training facilities. Tropical greenery surroundings not spoiled by extensive housing around.

A warm and friendly welcome on arrival with staff meeting you at your car, removing clubs and putting them into the personalised golf carts which are ready and waiting. The course is always in great condition and well manicured and a pleasure to play - its not the easiest so novice golfers are warned to pack a few extra balls!!... More

If you do venture into the rough to find your ball you may come out with more than one but it is not recommended. The support team are... More

The course itself is fairly challenging for a 18+ handicapper. Great mix of beauty and report style conditions. Loved the pie, beers and cold towel at the... More

Zimbali remains one of the top courses in SA. Great condition, well managed and love the home made chicken pie at halfway house :). Must play more than once to fully enjoy
