Golf in Tanzania is rather different from most other golf destinations. Not only can you enjoy on almost all of the golf courses the dramatic backdrop of Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru, but you might also have a Giraffe or Zebra judging the quality of your swing. You can play a round of golf within the cities of Dar Es Salaam and Arusha, at a sugar estate near Moshi and on a newly developed course with championship layout between Moshi and Arusha. We know the courses well and can arrange transfers and accommodation for you. Contact us for more information about golf in Tanzania.
The golf course has 9-holes and is open year round. Once you’ve teed off from hole number one at the Clubhouse, the course takes you alongside acacia forests and on to well presented greens, with Kilimanjaro always in sight. The course is irrigated by wastewater that has been used in the Factory. Golf clubs can be rented at the Clubhouse.
The golf course has been designed by the internationally renowned golf designer David Jones, a board member of the European Tour and former Kenya Open Champion. The par for the golf course will be 72, with the traditional mix of four par threes, four par fives, and ten par fours. There will be four sets of tees for each hole, allowing the course to be played from a championship length of around 6,500 metres down to a gentle 5,400 metres. At the moment you can play 9 holes with completion of all 18 holes scheduled for July 2014.
