The numbers of people playing golf around the world is huge. According to the British Golf Industry Association, there are 60 million golfers worldwide. It therefore goes without saying that a certain percentage of our clients do like to partake in an occasional round if they find themselves near a nice course.
Indeed, many of the hotels we offer have some wonderful courses available to the keen amateur or beginner: Rancho de los Caballeros in the Southwest of the USA; The Datai in Malaysia; and Cathedral Park Hotel in South Africa, are just three that spring to mind.
The Seychelles, on the other hand, isn’t perhaps your typical golf destination but that hasn’t stopped the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles launching a new driving-range with a novel difference; you hit your golf balls straight into the sea! Range markers are placed in the sea at set distances to show you how far you’re hitting your shots, and at the 6pm tee-off time, you have one hour to hit your shots as the sun sets.
Oh, and don’t worry if like me you think this is the height of environmental recklessness, the resort uses “ecobioballs” whose outer shell biodegrades within 48 hours, releasing fish food into the water.
