Where2Golf says: 

Knysna Golf Club: Although not as dramatic as some of its more recently established neighbours (especially Pezula and Simola), Knysna Golf Club has often been described as one of the hidden gems on the Garden Route. Adjacent to and at the same level as the Knysna lagoon, this flattish parkland layout is the "senior" course in the area by a considerable number of years. It is also one that has made excellent efforts to keep abreast of the changing demands of golf. The challenge of playing Knysna's generally tree-lined holes, has been beefed-up with the recent upgrading of the greens, addition of new bunkers, and extension of the tidal pools to create additional water hazards. The proximity of water to many greens, on occasions almost surrounding them, ensures that on both the front and back nine loops, good course management and shot-making will be required to score well. The surrounding hills provide a pleasantly scenic backdrop, while a wonderful array of flora and fauna will give you plenty to look out for on the course itself.

Did you know?

The very popular town of Knysna, which many would describe as the oyster capital of South Africa, is certainly one of the busiest tourist destinations on the Garden Route. The quality and variety of golf on offer in and around Knysna, is also a major plus factor. Knysna's colourful history spans the days of sailing ships, timber extraction and even a brief period of gold discovery. The vast, indigenous forests just to the north of Knysna became an invaluable source of timber for buildings, ships and wagons from the mid- 1700's onwards. The forests are still home to the only forest-dwelling elephants in South Africa.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
