Zimbali Country Club
Found a mere 45 minute drive up the coast road north from Durban, you will find the Zimbali Country Club, a gated residential community, nestling amongst the hills on the edge of the Indian Ocean.
The coastal forest course (Par 72 – 6,524 yards off the back tees) was designed by Tom Weiskopf and is a challenge to golfers of all handicaps - even off the White club tees, which shortens the course by some 500 yards. Buggies (with SatNav systems) are mandatory due to the distances between some holes. There is a new course (Zimbali Lakes) planned for 2016.
Accommodation at Zimbali consists of the exclusive Zimbali Lodge which is perfect for couples, and is just a short buggy ride from the Country Club and Pro Shop, whilst the larger Fairmont Zimbali Hotel is perfect for families and groups with a wide range of bars and restaurants. The incredible Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom is a short drive or taxi ride.
