zimbali country club 4 xlThe 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.

With the agenda of "conservation takes precedence," international golf course designer and former British and South African PGA champion, Tom Weiskopf, had to integrate a "cart only" course into a property with dramatic elevation changes, varying eco-systems and substantial residential sections. This was no easy task, but the end result is a prestigious South Africa golf course that is ecologically sound, yet it maximizes the natural landscape. Having been described as "an enthralling journey through 18 holes," the changing terrain stretches the skill yet captivates its golfers. With the Weiskopf philosophy of "presenting a fair challenge to any level of play," the essence of this course is that it will reward the good shot and punish the bad.

The remains of a ruined farmhouse framed around an ageing wild fig tree dominates the entrance to the clubhouse. Again construction had to take place around nature and this feature not only marks the entrance of the modern, colonial-styled clubhouse, it also bears testimony to the preservation ethos of the developers of Zimbali Country Club. The clubhouse has been designed and decorated in an African Classical theme, with extensive use of hand crafted décor, fittings and furnishings. Raised decks provide unparalleled elevated course and sea views, trees grow through decking leading down to the 18th green and parking for the course was carefully planned to minimize impact on the forest surrounds. Impeccable service, superb catering, a well appointed Golf Shop and plush cloakrooms enhance the venue even further.

The Zimbali Country Club provides full amenities for golf, including golf carts (required), a halfway house, putting greens, a driving range, tennis courts and a bar and lounge facility which is of the highest order.

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.
