Knysna Golf Course
the only golf course in South Africa which can boast holes that are
below sea level. When the course floods, which it does from time to
time in winter, it is possible to canoe down the fairway on the 465-metre
par-five 4th hole. It is situated close to the famous and very
beautiful Knysna Heads, as well as the Knysna Lagoon. It is easy to
walk and a fun course to play
but not championship standard.
The Knysna Golf Club is situated on the eastern shores of the tranquil
Knysna estuary one of the most beautiful regions of the Garden Route.
Set beside the shores of the Knysna Lagoon, the golf course meanders
along tidal pools and magnificent indigenous trees. An interesting
parklands style layout which has been enhanced over the past few years,
offers excellent bent grass greens.
The 18 hole course emphasises accuracy rather than length. The level
terrain makes the course appear deceptively easy but the layout
provides a challenge to golfers of all standards. A unique feature of
the course is that sea water is in play on 10 of the 18 holes. There is
an abundance of birdlife - both sea and fresh water birds, raptors and
The chances are good that the golfer will
see the richly coloured Knysna Loerie, undoubtedly one of South
Africa's most beautiful birds. The pleasant temperate climate offers
you golf throughout the year. Visitors are made most welcome by the
friendly Knysna Club members.
(was originally 9th but changed around in 2007) is the most
formidable at Knysna. Although it only measures 435 metres, it channels
through a wetland and golfers have to be wary of the reeds that flank
both sides of the fairway.
