A unique and impeccably maintained course beside one of the most beautiful stretches of white sand on Earth, Leisure Lodge offers its guests the very best of both worlds.

It has been called the most beautiful course in East Africa, but one thing is certain: Leisure Lodge Golf Course is worth all the effort. The course’s creation was one of the largest construction projects ever witnessed on Kenya’s South Coast, with miles of coral overlaid with sand and topsoil, the installation of an intricate web of pop-up sprinklers, and tonnes of tifgreen, pennlinks and other special grasses imported from the United States.

The result is one of the enduring success stories of Kenyan golf: a series of miraculously lush fairways that weave through mango, cashew-nut and casuarina groves to immaculate greens that shimmer like mirages in the eternal coastal sunshine.

Today, Leisure Lodge is widely regarded as one of the most exciting and exacting courses on Africa’s amateur circuit, with numerous tournaments staged here, including the now legendary Diani Beach Masters.

The course features a variety of engaging challenges, including 88 bunkers, a giant lake in an old quarry on the 15th hole, and a smaller lake teeming with aquatic life on the 18th. The exotic fruit trees draw a steady procession of birds and monkeys, including friendly Sykes and raucous troupes of black-and-white Colobuses.

Best of all, after a round of golf, visitors can relax and unwind along one of the most beautiful stretches of powder-white sand in Africa. As the only true beach-and-golf resort in Kenya, Leisure Lodge can guarantee guests that ultimate holiday aspiration: the best of both worlds.
