Offering irresistible ocean and forest views on this Durban golf course, 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. Conveniently situated inside the Zimbali Coastal Resort on the Durban coast, guests have easy access to the Zimbali golf course and clubhouse, as well as enjoying preferential rates.
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 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 Durban golf course 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 Zimbali golf 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 Country Club provides full amenities for golf, including golf carts (required), a halfway house, putting greens, a driving range, tennis courts and a bar and lounge facility which is of the highest order.
In terms of the ultimate Durban golfing experience, Zimbali is amongst the top 10 golf courses in South Africa to receive the Compleat Golfer's Five-star Golf Experience Award; based on service excellence, top-class clubhouse facilities, golf course conditioning and last but not least the overall lingering experience.
Zimbali Country Club is rated independently by GOLF DIGEST magazine as one of the top 250 SA golf courses, as well as being one of the 5 finest golfing experiences in SA.
