GOLF COURSE

The Golf course has been designed to be Nigeria’s first international caliber golf course that will be open to all facility guests and members. The course is designed to be a Par 72, 7000 Yard championship caliber golf course. The course will meander throughout the entire 220 acres taking advantage of all the natural high points, existing creeks and mature vegetation. The golf experience will be diverse in design providing a mixture of open area fescue grass zones and treed corridor holes. A variety of colorful turf and ornamental grasses will be incorporated throughout the course adding to the visual experience. There are several large expansive ponds located throughout the course creating several risk-reward and heroic shot options. Several “signature holes” have been included within the design adding further to the excitement and memorability of the experience. The course will include 6 sets of tees allowing the course to challenge the professional while at the same time be a very enjoyable and playable experience for the beginner and senior players. The 9th and 18th holes will finish along side a dramatic water feature in front of the hotel, allowing for a dramatic finish to the golf experience. The 9th and 18th green complexes will be constructed as a stadium amphitheater design, which will be ideal for hotel guests and spectators to watch local events and national tournaments. The course will be constructed to PGA standards and implement environmental sensitive maintenances practices.

A state-of-the-art driving range and golf academy has also been designed which will allow members and guests to practice all the different facets of the game and take lessons with professional teachers.
