So whether you’re a pro, or if you’re just getting into the swing of things, and like the idea of taking your golf clubs on a luxury holiday in Morocco, check out these three African golf resorts worthy of a long, relaxing vacay.
Le Touessrok, Mauritius
This beauty, situated just off the coast of Trou d’Eau Douce Bay on the island of Île aux Cerfs (known as Deer Island in English) in Mauritius, has an 18-hole championship golf course that is easily accessed by a short boat ride (available every 30 minutes) from Pointe Maurice Jetty.
The accommodation, although not situated on Île aux Cerfs, is just as special as this unique ‘golf-island.’ Stay at the five-star Shangri-La Le Tussrok Resort and Spa on the coast of Trou d’Éau Douche Bay, with its beautiful rooms, suites and villas, luxury spa treatments and fine dining.
Windsor Golf Resort, Kenya
Expect to be wowed at this spectacular golf resort in Kenya situated just 45 minutes from their international airport. Their cluster of 5-star Victorian-styled buildings offers 130 deluxe rooms looking out over their incredible 18-hole championship golf course with breath-taking views and a serene ambiance.
The golf course is said to be challenging but enjoyable, and while playing, you can make your way through coffee farms and indigenous forests, encountering both high and low terrain – a real adventurous experience!
If you fancy spending your golfing holiday in Morocco, then you’re in luck! Mazagan Beach and Golf Resort offers a variety of luxury rooms and suites at The Grand Riad, and the course is an ideal learning environment for all golfers (regardless of your level of experience).
