Get into the swing of things

Thanks to the region’s balmy tropical climate, Zimbali is home to an evergreen golfing paradise.

Founded in 1998, the Zimbali Country Club’s 18-hole links/coastal forest course was designed by internationally renowned golf course designer and former British and South African PGA Champion, Tom Weiskopf.

The par 72 championship course combines stunning views with challenging terrain that tests the skills of amateur and pro golfers alike.

The luxurious clubhouse is framed by the remains of an old, ruined farmhouse and ageing wild fig tree. Inside it's been designed to evoke a classical African atmosphere, with handcrafted decor, fittings and furnishings.

Plush cloakrooms, impeccable service and superb catering are par for the course here. The clubhouse was designed to be in complete harmony with its environment, with raised decks offering amazing views out over the ocean, and parking bays carefully planned to minimise impact on the surrounding coastal forest.

A past recipient of Compleat Golfer’s Five-Star Experience Award, the course, clubhouse, Pro Shop and mesmerising scenery assure one of the best golfing experiences in KwaZulu-Natal.
