Extended Ugandan Course To Open In October

11.34pm 28th August 2018 - Travel

Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort & Spa in Uganda is set launch its newly extended 18-Hole golf course in October 2018 during the Serena Open.

The Golf Course has been designed by Golf Plan USA under Principal Architect Kevin Ramsey and will boast sweeping views of Lake Victoria, and a rare finishing hole with an Island green. It will be Uganda’s first Clubhouse to incorporate a fully-fledged Pro Shop selling world class golfing merchandise – and will be the first Ugandan golf course to have bent grass. Golfers can also enjoy other facilities including a restaurant, bar, half way house, conference room, locker rooms as well as ladies and gents steam rooms.

Daily operations of the club’s existing 9 holes have not been affected during the extension – and all that remains to be completed for the October relaunch is the planting of the last two holes.

The Lake Victoria Serena Golf Club is a private club offering a challenging layout and a Golf Academy with 780m² of putting green which acts as both a teaching and practice facility designed to replicate various shot areas such as short game area, a practice bunker and chipping green. Constructed to full USGA specifications, this beautiful course will be suitable for all level of golfers.

Non-golfers can indulge in the other activities such as nature walks, picnic cruises on Lake Victoria, visits to the neighbouring Chimpanzee Island – or simply relax at the Maisha Spa where a range of different massage and beauty treatment can be enjoyed. The 45,070 m² Marina can accommodate up to 24 boats, each with a service station for electricity and water.

Serena is committed to nurturing the growth of golf in east Africa and hosts bi-annual sports camps for children in April and August every year, enabling youngsters to acquire great skills and passion for the sport, mentored and trained by a US Kids Club Certified Coach.

Mr. Anthony Chege, Country Manager, Serena Hotels Uganda, concludes, “The Lake Victoria Serena Golf Course is one of the most beautiful courses in the region could not be more proud to have it on our property and simply cannot wait to be positioned as the best golf and spa resorts in Africa.”

With the opening of the new Kampala – Entebbe Expressway, Lake Victoria Golf Resort and Spa is now also very easily accessible.
