Knysna Golf Club was formed in 1909 and members have been playing at the club’s current location – where the fairways back onto the Knysna Lagoon – for over sixty years.

George Strydom began the construction of the original 9-holer in 1949 with Jock Fraser finishing the job two years later. Another twenty years would pass before the course was doubled in size to a full 18-hole layout by Harold Thesen.

An extensive upgrade program was embarked upon in the mid 1990s when Phillip Basson reconstructed the greens to USGA standard. Soon after, new water features were introduced and extra bunkers installed to augment the golfing challenge.

An upgraded clubhouse was completed in May 2007, in good time for the club’s centenary celebrations, but unfortunately, a fire in January 2010 destroyed the new building. To the eternal credit of the club members, the clubhouse was rebuilt in double quick time and a replacement building was in place by April 2011.

The eighteen holes at Knysna have been overshadowed by the course at Pezula since it opened on an adjacent property in 2000 (and the even more recent layout at nearby Simola has also put Knysna in the shade) but the club is clearly doing its very best to compete against these other modern golf facilities.
