For the more relaxed pace holiday maker, taking up golfing might just be one of the best distractions of the day. Two such facilities are available on Mahe and Praslin
Reef Golf Club, Mahe
Located on the east coast of Mahe at Anse aux Pins, this rather unique 9 hole, Par 3 course is located adjacent to the coast road and offers fairly basic golf in a tropical setting. The course was constructed from a coconut plantation with the result that fairways are very narrow and restricted.
Woe betide the hooked ball player whilst another hazard is the enormous robber crabs near the marsh that occasionally take a liking to golf balls.
Lemuria Resort Golf Course, Praslin
The Lemuria Golf Course on Praslin Island is connected to the stunning Constance resort, and is available daily to hotel guests. The Seychelles present a landscape as intoxicating as any other in world golf, which is why the amazing islands are held in such high esteem by travellers and golfers the world over.
The 18 hole Par 70, 6105 yard Championship Golf Course was opened in 2000. The course offers a great challenge to all levels of players, amateurs and professionals alike.
Carved through delightful groves of tropical woodland, Lemuria winds its way along the picture perfect coastline, offering visiting golfers moments of golfing perfection. Laid out in a positively amazing setting, the Lemuria resort's golf course is the epitome of golf in the Seychelles. Highlights include the 15th par 3 hole which is among the very best short holes in world golf.
This spectacular course borders onto the beaches of Anse Kerlan, Petite Anse Kerlan and Anse Georgette. The first 12 holes are on the lower levels, fringed with palm trees and from the 13th the course extends up to the higher levels with breathtaking views over the ocean.
The club offers full club and equipment hire, club cars and golf lessons. Lemuria Golf Club is open to both residents and non-residents of the hotel. There are no green fees for Lemuria hotel guests. Club cars are compulsory for all players due to the inclines and distances.
