First golf course for Zanzibar


Sea Cliff Resort & Spa will be opening the first golf course on the island of Zanzibar in Tanzania on 1 December. 

The course has been designed by renowned golf course architect Peter Matkovich, taken two years to construct, and will feature nine holes and 18 tees.

With soft to undulating movement, the course showcases many natural features of the island by meandering through tropical bush, past indigenous trees, coastal dunes and a mangrove area.
One of the most special features is that two of the finishing holes play alongside the Indian Ocean.

 There is also an international standard practice facility, which includes a full length driving range with an array of chipping, bunker and putting greens.
Although it is open to visitors, the hotel ensures its guests preferential rates and tee times.

The course has a par of 70, which includes short to long par 3’s, a variety of par 4’s including a couple of drivable options (depending on wind direction), and some fun par 5’s.
