Golf In Seychelles - 2 Best Golf Courses in Seychelles

Golf courses in Seychelles offer unmatched experience with tee-offs surrounded with lush vegetation, forests, mountains, pristine beaches and the mighty Indian ocean. Seychelles provides a range of golf courses to keep you up and about all through your stay. Though the islands have two golf courses (one each in Mahe and Praslin), golf happens to be the most sponsored sport of Seychelles. 

1. Seychelles Golf Club

Founded in 1972, this course is tucked away in the south-eastern corner on the island of Mahe. The course is only about 10 minutes away from the Seychelles International airport at Pointe Larue. It was built over 50 acres of marshland and what used to be a coconut plantation. It sports a nine-hole course with a well laid out freeway and forests all around. Though a 9-hole course, it can also be played as an 18-hole course, though the first nine holes and the last nine holes must be played from different tee boxes. Measuring 5078 yards when played as an 18-hole course, the course is deceptively short. The tight freeways make a 68 par quite a feat to achieve. The signature hole is the 321 yards 4 par, fourteenth, with its elevated tee box. 
Timings: 8:30 AM. No bookings required except Thursdays and Saturdays.
Location: Anse Aux Pins, Mahe, Seychelles
Entry Fee (per person)
For 9 Holes: SCR 300 (Approx. USD 23)

2. Lemuria Golf Course

Set against the jaw-dropping Anse Georgette, this golf course was designed by renowned American architect Rodney Wright under the influence of the French-champion Marc Antoine Farry. The first 12 holes sit over the sweeping greens of the Grand Anse Kerlan, leaving the last six holes elevated offering breathtaking views. This impressively designed course is the only 18-hole course in Seychelles. The course is 5556 m (70 par) long and is a part of the luxurious 101-hectare spread of the Constance Lemuria on Praslin Island. It takes a 25-minute flight or a 2-hour boat ride from Mahe to reach the most sought after a golf course in Seychelles. It opened its doors in 2000 and was renovated in 2016. From hole 13 onwards the sport becomes challenging which is an uphill par four and a lake on towards the right side.

Golf in Seychelles is all about the elevated holes and the mesmerising view —a confluence of mountainous forests dipping straight into the clear blue waters, racing in a curve to meet the horizon beyond. Quite like those land and sea breeze diagrams in the science textbooks. Seychelles embodies the mix of all the beauties of nature we grow up to imagine. Golf, then, becomes the game that allows you to embrace the solitude that Seychelles has to offer. That is, of course, if you manage to drag yourself out of the blissful mornings in bed.
