Sunset views

Book here for dinner and enjoy sunset views from the balcony. The food was good though not exceptional but the views make up for any shortfall of the limited menu

Fantastic views, well kept, and can't wait to have another go at it. Must have a buggy, for the massive vertical height differences and long walk between holes.

This was the last course we played on our holiday and it was the best. The views were fantastic from the clubhouse, down to the course and across to the Indian Ocean. On a fabulous sunny day can life get any better? You definitely need a buggy, it was included in our booking anyway. I share the feeling of the... More

This is a great and well maintained course. You need a golf cart since the course is quite rocky. It would get a 5 star if there hadn't been a problem with two dogs following us and chasing our cart for a few holes. We told the staff, they answered that they belonged to the course's owner and didn't do... More

Jack Nicklaus designed a few too many bunkers on this course, but the views more than make up for this. It's not easy, but conditioning and the memories are great!

At Simola you will enjoy your round of golf. It is a fair test of golf. Nevertheless, it is a demanding and challenging golf course. The views from the clubhouse and the terrace are stunning.
