Golfing at Knysna Golf Club

Designed by Peter Matkovich

The Knysna Golf Club was originally established in 1909 and has undergone several redesigns over the years to enhance its layout. The most significant redesign was undertaken by Peter Matkovich, a renowned South African golf course architect known for his ability to create courses that blend seamlessly with the natural environment.

Knysna Golf Club, situated in the Garden Route of South Africa, offers an 18-hole parkland course that is both challenging and enjoyable for golfers of all levels. The course is set amidst a stunning landscape characterized by indigenous vegetation, serene water features, and a variety of birdlife. Golfers can expect well-maintained fairways, strategically placed bunkers, and true greens that require skill and precision.

Signature Holes

  • Hole 7 – Par 3: This hole is a standout for its scenic beauty and challenge. The tee shot must carry over a water hazard to a green that is well-protected by bunkers, demanding accuracy and confidence.
  • Hole 9 – Par 5: Known for its length and strategic design, this par 5 features a double dogleg fairway and multiple water hazards. It offers a risk-reward opportunity for those willing to go for the green in two.
  • Hole 18 – Par 4: The finishing hole is a dramatic par 4 that plays along a water hazard on the right and requires a precise approach to a green guarded by bunkers. It provides a memorable end to the round.

Knysna Golf Club hosts several notable tournaments throughout the year, attracting golfers from across the region and beyond. Membership at the club provides exclusive benefits, including priority tee times, access to members-only events, and opportunities to engage with a vibrant golfing community.
