Zimbali Country Club

Mostly Clear
-°C Today, Forecast: -
Offering irresistible ocean and forest views, exceptional water and wetland features and an inspiring natural setting, Zimbali Country Club has developed the reputation of a memorable course with charisma and challenge.

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 service could have been better. However, it is in my humble view, the best course to play in the world

The Zimbali Golf Course is well maintained and beautifully integrated into the subtropical hilly landscape. The big greens are fast and the bunkers are filled with top quartz sand. The essential and existing golf carts have a good PGS system. The entire staff is friendly. The Pro Shop has a wide assortment ready.

Great course in good condition and one of the best on the Durban coast. Unfortunately, the pace of play at Zimbali is painfully slow. It’s a difficult course and there are lots of old members who struggle and are simply too slow. Our round took over 5 hours so I will be playing elsewhere in future.

Best service and perfect organization. A very nice place with varied tracks. However, the fairways are not in a good condition and the greens are very slow.

Unfortunately Slow Play was tolerated which definitely spoiled the experience. The course is great, but greens did not keep up with it.
