The essence of playing golf
Spend a morning or afternoon teeing-off at the beautiful 18-hole Entebbe Golf Club, known for wildlife that roam amidst the fairways, or the 9-hole Lake Victoria Serena Championship Golf Course, rated amongst the country’s best courses. Most hotels will be able to book a round for you, at either course, and have clubs to rent.
Arguably one of the most fantastic courses in East Africa, Entebbe golf course boasts the best fairways in Africa. Established in 1901, the oldest course in Uganda has 18 holes totaling to par 71 which include par 3 six holes, par 4 seven holes, and par 5 five holes. Bordering the Uganda Wildlife Education Centre, the course is playable all year round. If you are in the mood for other outdoor activities the club also offers two tennis courts, one basketball court, and a cricket oval. Indoor games include badminton, darts and snooker.
If you want to give all golf courses a fair chance, then the 9-hole (soon to be 18-hole) Lake Victoria Serena Championship Golf Course is a magnificent green. Designed by the world renowned American consultancy Golfplan, it is committed to becoming one of Africa’s most famous golf courses.
The course sweeps around the central channel of the Marina, featuring numerous natural lakes and fish ponds and some of the most striking greens in the world. A stunning backdrop to the course are the verdant Lweza Hills, which are abundant with colourful birdlife, and, fronted by the tranquil waters of the lake, the course presents an experience that is both demanding and enjoyable. After your game head off to the refined Club House, for a drink and a meal. The Golf Boutique offers a team of professionals and the optional hire of equipment.
