A Seychelles golf holiday is just what the doctor ordered for you. :-). But until quite recently golf in Seychelles was not very popular, so it has taken a back seat over other developments. But now if you're thinking of a special golf holiday Seychelles may be just the place for you. There are 2 golf courses for you to choose from, but...
Whether you're a professional or amateur who wants to test your skills on a golf holiday Seychelles Lemuria resort's championship golf course would certainly be a delight. It would please even God, if he plays golf. :-).
Called "Golf of the Gods," The Lemuria, Seychelles holiday resort's golf course starts on low-level flat land in a coconut grove; then you start climbing hills over the second part of the course where you get breath-taking panoramic views of the ocean with a couple of small offshore islands beyond. The picture-postcard vistas are a real feast for the eyes.
The course was designed to hold international golf competitions, so it has all the facilities you would expect from a championship golf course. A very challenging one, it has many natural hazards with a wide fairway - 5556 metres (6112 yards) long and par 70 challenge.

Golf holiday Seychelles - a difficult choice
But a round on this golf course is not only a challenge it is also a real pleasure...The second half of the course winds its way up and down, around hills and along valleys.
The course leads you to a small cove and Anse Georgette Beach after the 15th hole. This is a most magnificent beach and an excellent place for refreshments.
Feast your eyes here on this wonderful white sandy beach, bathed by azure blue waters.
Many regard it as the second best beach on Praslin Island after the world famous Anse Lazio Beach. See the best Seychelles beaches. Perhaps you could tell us about it in your own story when you get back from your Seychelles golf holiday? :-).
This is indeed a nice treat - How much of your holiday are you going to spend at the beach. After all there are 3 wonderful beaches around this golf course. I know you came for the golf but can you resist those beaches? So enjoy every minute of your Seychelles holiday at this wonderful "Golf of the gods" resort.

There is of course one other golf course in Seychelles, and this one is on the main Island of Mahe. It is sometimes called Seychelles Golf Club or Reef Golf Club. They are one and the same at Anse aux Pins village near Reef Estate and opposite the old Reef Hotel.
To play a round of golf on this 9-hole golf course you'll have to call the Seychelles golf club. Get your hotel to make your reservation if you're staying on Mahe.
While this ends your tour of golf holidays in Seychelles there are plans for another championship golf course in these islands. This one will be in Victoria as part of a marina project that includes golf course, luxury hotel, apartments and condos...
This is a very big development project that should provide you, when completed, with even more Seychelles golf holiday opportunities. It is for 2012 and beyond but why not start planning now...?
