Dreaming of a golfing holiday that’s a putt above the rest? Here’s Kenwood Travel’s guide to the best golf resorts in the world, by par.
Mauritius: Constance Belle Mare Plage Resort & Spa
Boasting two championship 18-hole golf courses, Constance Belle Mare Plage is considered the reference for golf in the Indian Ocean. As the hosts of the Legends Tour and a PGA European Tour destination, this spectacular course is graced by golfing superstars around the world, some of which you can even compete against in the pro-am events hosted by the resort.
Each of the two courses are surrounded by lush green foliage and are featured in Today’s Top Golfer’s “Top 100 Courses in the World to Play”.
Barbados: Sandy Lane
Located on the ‘Platinum Coast’ of Barbados, Sandy Lane is the ultimate luxury golfing getaway. This five-star resort has three courses on-site: The Old Nine, The Country Club, and the exclusive Green Monkey. Available only to guests of the hotel, this prestigious course was designed by legendary golf architect Tom Fazio and erected from an old limestone quarry.
After a day spent on the course, cool off in the 7,500 square foot pool or enjoy a relaxing sports massage at the indulgent Barbados Spa.
Ras Al Khaimah: Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah
Sandwiched between a private beach and the stunning 18-hole championship Al Hamra golf course, which was recently featured on the DP World Tour, the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah is the perfect place to relax and unwind as well as enjoy word-class golfing.
The Al Hamra Golf Club also offers its guests the unique opportunity to play at night beneath the stars – a must-do experience for any avid golfer!
The award-winning Sandals Emerald Bay Golf Course is arguably not only one of the most scenic places to golf in the Caribbean, but in the world. This 18-hole, par 72 championship course sports stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean’s aquamarine shores, with the first 9 holes winding through a mix of seaside dunes and scenic mangroves.
This forward-thinking course even has its own mobile app, giving tech-savvy golfers comprehensive course information, GPS positioning and a digital scorecard.
Morocco: Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort
Holding the impressive title of North Africa’s longest links course, all 6,855m of Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort has been impeccably designed by golfing legend Gary Player. The course uses recycled water to counter unnecessary waste, and each of the dunes and valleys has been crafted using regional sand.
It’s one of the most family-friendly resorts on our list, offering lessons for juniors who are just starting out, as well as the Junior Golf Academy and Golf Summer Camp for budding enthusiasts.
Tenerife: The Ritz-Carlton Abama
Perfect for the player seeking variety, the spectacular Ritz-Carlton Abama boasts six golf courses right on its gleaming doorstep.
Most notably is its proximity to Tenerife’s most iconic course, the world-renowned Abama Golf. Inspired by the island’s stunning coastal terrain, this unique par 72 course features 22 water hazards and white sand bunkers, making playing on this course a unique and scintillating experience.
Dubai: JA Lake View Hotel
With two seawater lakes framing the picturesque par 35 course, the JA The Resort houses one of the most scenic golf courses in all of Dubai. This stunning course has the option of four different tees, providing variation and playability as well as the opportunity for an 18 hole round.
Guests here can also choose to book a lesson at the David Leadbetter Academy; the first institute in the Middle East offering holistic approach to golf instruction. Here a fully qualified PGA professional will take you through swing analysis, course management, mental preparation, and physical conditioning.
Florida: Encore Resort at Reunion Hotel
Florida is renowned globally as one of the world’s top golfing destinations, and there’s no better located hotel to sample some of the ‘Sunshine State’s finest courses than Encore Resort at Reunion. Each of the three courses at Reunion Resort has been expertly designed by a PGA champion, meaning you can tee off in the very same spot as superstars Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Tom Watson!
