Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort & Spa, Kigo, will take golf in East and Central Africa to the next level

A vision of charming Mediterranean architecture and understated luxury, Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort & Spa, Kigo, will take golf in East and Central Africa to the next level when it unveils its one of a kind 18-hole golf course in October 2018. This distinctive course designed by Golf Plan USA, under the guidance of the Principal Architect - Kevin Ramsey, boasts of sweeping views of Lake Victoria, making it the region’s best golf destination. Its unique features include an 18-hole golf course isolated on a green island, and bent grass, which is a first in Uganda.UGANDA: 


 

 
To add gloss to this historic launch, an elite class of golfers will give the course its first tee off in shape of the Serena Johnnie Walker Open from 3rd-6th October, 2018.
 


The private Golf Club offers a stimulating layout for the ever-evolving golfer looking for an enjoyable putting experience. The club boasts of an Academy sitting on 780m² of putting green, which acts as both a schooling and training facility, designed to replicate various shot areas such as short game area, a practice bunker and chipping green.
 


“This is more than just a golf club; it is a premier golfing complex with improved facilities to encourage both the golfing and social aspect of the club. We hope to fulfill the aspirations of golfers and entice visitors to consider membership to either the golf club or golf academy,” says Mr. Frankline Nyakundi, the Resort Manager.
 

 

The Golf Club is also the only club house in Uganda with a fully-fledged Pro-Shop selling world class golfing merchandise. It also hosts a restaurant, bar, one halfway house, a conference room, locker rooms as well as ladies and gents steam rooms to make it a complete golfing haven.
 

 

“The construction boom of golf courses and its related facilities in East Africa is a clear indication of an unexploited market for golf tourism. As we pursue our golf expansion plans, we encourage the public to take up golfing as a sport as well as the private sectors, support through association initiatives and sponsorships,” adds Mr. Nyakundi.
 

 

The golf club is already playing a major role in budding the next golfing generation by hosting bi-annual sports camps for children in April and August every year. This opportunity enables young players acquire great skills in the game at an early age, mentored and trained by a US Kids Club Certified Coach.
 

 

Golf enthusiasts from the UAE can consider this destination for their future golfing and leisure holidays. A short 5-hour direct flight takes you to Entebbe, Uganda and a very short drive leads to the picturesque Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort & Spa. 


Geographically located on the line of equator in East Africa, the weather ranges between 16-25°C from April through November, while the temperatures during the warmer months of December – March reach to a maximum of 30°C.
 

 

With the opening of the Kampala - Entebbe Expressway, the picturesque Lake Victoria Golf Resort and Spa is now more accessible to golfers, business and leisure visitors. Travelers who are not golf enthusiasts can indulge in the other facilities at the resort with a raft of activities to choose from: nature walks to absorb the beautiful panoramic views of the golf course and surrounding lake view, dine at the Marina and Lago (Fine Dining) Restaurants, set out for a romantic picnic cruise on the Lake Victoria, visit the neighbouring Chimpanzee Island, or relaxing moments at the Maisha Spa where a range of different massage and beauty treatment can be enjoyed. There are activities suitable for families as well.
 

 

The 45,070 m² Marina can accommodate up to 24 boats, each with a service station for electricity and water.
 

 

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 and we 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.”
 

 
Johnny Walker is the main sponsor for the Tournament with Barclays, DStv and Mitsubishi Motors being co-sponsors.
