Golf in the Seychelles

Lémuria is proud to offer the only 18-hole golf course in the Seychelles with greens that stretch across terraced mountainsides with breathtaking views over three stunning beaches and across the Indian Ocean.

Golf manager and pro at Lémuria, Gary Pouponneau, describes, ‘Although this is considered a difficult golf course guests love to play it because of its beautiful landscape. Whether you are a golfer or not you will definitely love the last six holes for their breathtaking view over neighbouring islands and the ocean.’

World Travel Awards Leading Golf Resort in Indian Ocean

Winner of the World Travel Awards Leading Golf Resort in the Indian Ocean five years running, Lémuria has extended the 5* standard and luxury of its hotel to its golf course.

You can even book your tee-off time before you arrive with our online concierge, and enjoy coaching sessions with golf pros and top class golf equipment to rent.

Gary says, ‘The great advantage that golfers at Lémuria have is that they can play our course alone, that is something you never see on other golf courses around the world.’

Golf pros at Lémuria

Gary Pouponneau is an example of one of the golf pros on hand to help guests improve their game or learn the ways of the challenging course.

Gary has played professional golf around the world representing the Seychelles at the Commonwealth Youth Games in Scotland in 1997 and winning the Mauritius Open in 2003 and 2005. In 2008 he won the Basin Blue Open and in 2009 the Vanuatu Open.

He explains his ambition to become a golf pro and golf manager at Lémuria, ‘I decided I wanted to be the first Seychellois to be a qualified golf professional on the only 18-hole golf course in the Seychelles.

‘I was lucky that I was able to turn my hobby into a job. I love to be on the golf course everyday, whether I get to play or not at least I am not sitting behind a desk the whole day. I enjoy meeting some really great people and helping golfers improve their game.’
