Knysna’s Favourite

Visitor information

Knysna Golf Club was founded in 1909

Knysna is one of the country’s oldest, most characterful and cherished golf clubs. It is renowned for its friendly, relaxed atmosphere and its exceptional clubhouse facilities. Visitors from all parts of the globe are assured a warm welcome and are encouraged to take part in the club’s full programme of golfing competitions.

Our 18-hole course features many tidal pools and inlets with magnificent indigenous trees and a wide variety of bird-life. The flat terrain offers easy walking both with or without a trolley – but don’t be deceived! Long par-5s, imposing par-3s and some challenging par-4s, make it an enjoyable but thought-provoking test for players of all levels.

It’s a challenging links/parkland layout which has been upgraded and enhanced over the past 10 years. The course boasts some of the finest greens in the Southern Cape and its many natural hazards and scenic location adds to its charm and visual appeal.

Knysna Golf Club is one of the town’s most enduring institutions.

Regularly hosting charity events, Southern Cape Opens, Junior Order of Merit competitions, functions for local organisations and businesses and supporting the development of golf, particularly amongst youngsters, Knysna Golf Club embraces the best traditions of a long-established members’ club.

Affordable rates, welcoming staff and excellent facilities make a visit to Knysna Golf Club a memorable and pleasurable experience for anyone who loves the game of golf.

S.T.Gennep, The Netherlands

Je bent hier echt gast! Een zeer prettige golfclub. Een hoge attentie waarde van het personeel. Een niet te moeilijke maar wel leuke baan. Wij hadden een buggy, maar is ook eenvoudig om zelf of met een caddy te lopen.

You'll enjoy playing here! Excellent course to suit all with reasonable golf ability. It’s very scenic with quite a bit of water so you do have to hit straight ..or be good at fishing!

We had 2 Caddies at a cost of R180 each. Well worth it. Greens were in excellent condition as was the overall course. You do need to book as it is a very busy Members’ Club.
