Golfing on Reunion Island

Clear round

Fancy perfecting your swing in the Tropics while exploring Reunion Island ?

The island boasts four 9- and 18-hole golf courses that nestle among lush greenery in pleasant tropical settings. The guarantee of a change of scene! Reunion Island enjoys a huge diversity of scenery and four golf courses. That’s quite a selection for an island of this size. And they complement one another too.

Wellness and fitness

Less flat but with superb views over the Indian Ocean, the Bassin Bleu Golf Course unfurls above Reunion’s west coast. Both varied and challenging, the18 holes take you from the shade of eucalyptus trees to the edges of ravines. At the 4th hole, there’s even a canyon to cross! As reward for their efforts, golfers can follow their session with a restorative massage and treatments at the Kaolin wellness centre.

Small but tough !

The Colorado Golf Club is smaller but has beautiful greens and 9 holes, all nestling in the Colorado leisure park at La Montagne above Saint-Denis. This is a hilly golf course as you might expect, but it’s also the highest on Reunion Island, with an average elevation of 600 metres above sea level. The elevation range makes it a challenging course, both technically and physically, with lots of slopes and a few climbs to negotiate…

Practising with the golf simulator

The Beauséjour Sport Club in Sainte-Marie offers magnificent views of Saint-Denis and the Indian Ocean, as well as a driving range in a lovely natural setting. The covered 11-tee driving range is equipped with state-of-the-art artificial lawn and numerous targets. With a putting green exceeding 800m², a bunker and a pitching green, your rounds between friends will turn you into formidable golfers. (Book ahead.)

Players of all levels from novice to expert will be able to enjoy the game individually or in groups. Introduction to golf and discovery sessions for children from the age of 6 years. Installed in a cosy lounge, the golf simulator is perfect for practising alone or with a coach, and to share an experience with friends on the world’s most legendary golf courses. The “Green Garden” bar and restaurant invites you to enjoy lunch or share drinks at the end of the day.
