Forget exclusive, the Simola crowd makes anyone feel welcome... I like to think it's 5-star 'inclusivity'... (which is not a word, I checked, but it should be). I think the single word that sums up Simola is "approachable". Yes, it's a little more than the...More

The family accommodation caters for self-caterers. You will find gas braai and convection ovens in the same venue. An excellent health spa is available. You can also enjoy lunch, supper and breakfast at the Simola restaurant. Golfing becomes and extra special treat.

This is a Nicklaus signature golfcourse but unlike i.e. Pearl Valley it is really hilly. Use a buggy. But the design.... Wow!!! The maintenance on tees, fairways and greens are immaculate.

wonderful golf course, challenging but not too difficult. We really enjoyed the front nine especially the par 4 second hole, which is on an elevated tee and has amazing views!
