Best Golf Clubs and Golf Courses In Kenya

This is a list of Kenya’s best golf clubs and courses. Golf is a cross-country sport in which a player uses various clubs to hit a small ball from a series of starting points (teeing grounds) into a series of holes on a course. The player who uses the fewest strokes to hole his ball wins.

The game’s origins are unknown, but evidence suggests that early forms of golf were played in the Netherlands first, and then in Scotland.

Kenya has several world-class golf courses and is Africa’s best-golfing destination according to the World Golf Awards, which recognizes and rewards Africa’s best golfing destinations.

What is a Golf Course

A golf course is a location where the game of golf is played. It is made up of a series of holes, each with a tee box, a fairway, the rough, and other hazards, as well as a green with a cylindrical hole in the ground known as a “cup.” The cup contains a flagstick, also known as a “pin.” A typical round of golf has 18 holes.
