Zimbali Golf Course

Just 20 minutes drive north of Durban at the Zimbali Lodge Hotel is this wonderful Tom Wieskopf designed course. (He also designed the Loch Lomond course). A tough test yes, but a spectacular one too, with the first eleven holes built on rolling open terrain providing awesome views over the Indian Ocean and the final seven cut from the Zimbali coastal forest. Compulsory golf buggies make this incredible but testing course a round to savour.

The Zimbali Country Club has gained a reputation for an unforgettable course with personality and punch, offering alluring ocean and forest views, extraordinary water and wetland characteristics, and a truly inspirational natural setting.

With the “conservation takes precedence” agenda, international golf course architect and former British and South African PGA winner Tom Weiskopf had to implement a “Buggy only” course into an estate with radical changes in elevation, changing eco-systems and sizeable residences. That was no simple process, but the final outcome is an environmentally sustainable highly esteemed South African golf course, that fully maximises the beautiful environment.

The remains of a ruined farmhouse surrounded by an aging wild fig-tree influence the clubhouse entrance. Construction once again had to take place around nature and this feature not only marks the entrance of the modern, colonial-styled clubhouse, it also bears witness to the Zimbali Country Club developers’ ethos of preservation. The clubhouse has been designed and furnished with an African Classical concept, using extensive handmade decoration, fittings, and furniture.

A must play golf course on the Durban coastline of South Africa.
