Over the past 15 years we have gone from 450 to 1100 members. This alone tells the story of how the course and facilities have improved. Knysna is a flat Parkland course set at sea level with fairways that meander between tidal pools and indigenous trees. With some of the best bent grass greens in the Southern Cape this course provides all levels of players with a good challenge.

On the 13th January 2010 the clubhouse burnt to the ground and 15 months later we moved into a modern and practical facility. A clubhouse which will once again help in improving the experience of all who visit Knysna Golf Club.

So if ever you are in the Knysna area please come and enjoy our hospitality.

Remember if you have not played Knysna you have not played the Southern Cape.

easy, very affordable golf

it's a well kept but flat like a pan course.
rather a 2,5* than a 3*, but they are doing a good job considered the drought circumstances. obstacles are the countless scattered big trees. the greens are undulated, so there is a also bit of challenge. it's not boring to play at all and for the very decent green fee worthwile, if you look for an easy going stroll.
nice clubhouse, good facilities, friendly.

Nice flat meadow to warm up the season

The locals' place. It's flat and easy to play.
A bit of a back and forth meadow with lots of murky water.
However, it's not boring because the tracks don't go parallel (back and forth) but rather criss-cross. Because it was effortless, easy and cheap, we played it twice. The only course that I played well under handicap the first time because it is so clear. Some of the ponds were so overgrown that it looked like a flower bed. Chic clubhouse and nice reception.
The hail and cloudburst on hole 18 was spectacular. The car in the parking lot survived without damage.
I can recommend, but if someone gives 5* here, then they have to give Pezula and Simola 8*. They're in a different league at about twice the price.

Very old club...

... which was founded at the beginning of the last century. The first course had 9 holes and had to give way to the railway line. As a result, they had to move their holes several times until they found today's home in the early 1950s.

It all started with 9 holes, which were expanded to 18 holes 20 years later. Of course, they also played here on sand screens - which the player had to maintain after the work was done - in the mid-1990s they all rebuilt. The course as such was also further developed, with water hazards and bunkers. The work was done by the former greekeeper of the George Golf Club - Phillip Basson.

Today's course is a wonderful, flat parkland course that is somewhat overshadowed by the big ones in the region.

This course is not too difficult, the holes are not that long - just under 320 meters on average. The driver can enjoy longer breaks.

Well-maintained area with a nice clubhouse and nice staff.

Solid four stars, for the fifth there are no playful challenges.

It was fun, after 2001 we are here for the second time.
