Wouldn’t it be a perfect day to stand just a mile from the equator, admire gorgeous Lake Victoria and do what you enjoy most – that is, play an engaging round of golf with Mobitee? Today we want to present you with the first African course in our golf blog, quite possibly one of the best courses in East Africa, where sport and nature come together – Entebbe Golf Club in Uganda.
What makes this golf course particularly inspiring is that it’s situated in the middle of a wildlife park. You will have to be careful on some of the holes not to hit the ball out of bounds straight into the adjoining Entebbe Zoo, complete with rhinos, monkeys and birds who may show a particular interest in your progress. An experience such as this is bound to be unforgettable and will most certainly add a delightfully scenic dimension to your golf game.
Taking about three and a half hours to complete and with a solid selection of 18 holes, this public golf course will be an enjoyable test for any golfer. A regular player on Entebbe Golf Club, Stuart Ritchie, gave his review on the Worldgolf.com website, “Entebbe is regarded as one of the better tracks in east Africa. It certainly rates highly in Uganda, vying with the Kampala course for No1 status.” Click here for Ritchies’ pictures of Entebbe Golf Club.
A Par 71, 6684-yard course with several long par 5s and two par 4s, doglegs, holes requiring drives to avoid trees (and wild animals), fairway bunkers waiting for perfect tee shots but also with broad fairways giving great birdie opportunities (providing the right club is chosen)… this is just an insight into the experience you will get playing in Entebbe Golf Club, cooled by a breeze from Lake Victoria!
