Golf in the Seychelles




Golfyou'd think there wouldn't be a vacationer who'd want Seychelles travel to spend a golf holiday there, because the offers for playing golf here are admittedly quite modest - compared to other holiday destinations.

Praslin Lemuria Golf, Seychelles

On the other hand, for recreational sportsmen and women who would like to hit a few golf balls in a unique landscape during their holidays, there are certainly possibilities to fulfill their wishes.

The first possibility to play golf would be the Seychelles Golf Club on Mahé. It has a 9-hole course between palm trees, situated south of the airport on the east coast of the Island is lying.

Newer and bigger is however the 18-hole championship course at the Constance Lemuria Resort on Praslin. Guests staying at one of the two Constance hotels in the Seychelles (at Lémuria itself or at the new Constance Ephélia Resort on Mahé) are exempt from the green fee, but non-guests are also allowed to play here. This par-70 course was opened at the end of 2002 and is 5,556 metres long. It is a real challenge for players of all classes and inspires pros and amateurs alike. It borders the two enchanting beaches of Petite and Grand'. Anse Kerlan. The first twelve holes are under palm trees, through which the sunlight shines, and from hole 13 the course leads over the densely wooded hills, from whose heights breathtaking views open up to the players.
