As the lovers of the small white ball know well, the pleasure of golf is to be found both in its technique and in the environment where it takes place. New Caledonia has embraced this and with four 18-hole courses, possesses facilities with a variety of strong points and features. This just multiplies the pleasure of golfing and discovering the courses.
Jewels of nature – from Tina to Déva, from Ouenghi to Dumbéa, Caledonian golf courses are first of all incomparable sites. Jewels of nature, each with an identity of its own, but always in a privileged environment. At Dumbéa, the course follows the river, while at Déva and Tina, playing certain holes; nothing keeps you from gazing at the Pacific Ocean. Lastly, at Boulouparis, the soft valleys of the course invite you to walk just as much as to play golf.
Amateur and pros alike – with a little practice, every course is within range for all levels of golfers. As long as you adjust your expectations! Don’t imagine that you can reach par the first times, the challenge would be less entertaining. On the other hand, over time, the most difficult holes become real challenges to adapt your game, perfect your concentration, and improve your level.
Technique takes over – besides, pro golfers can set the bar very high by going from one course to the other. The 17th hole of Garden Golf in Dumbéa, for example, is one of the longest and most complicated par-5 holes in the Pacific: 560 meters long, a dogleg hole, a small lake, and a river to cross. At Tina golf course, start out in the afternoon and prepare to compete with the East wind to reach your goals.
Family Friendly – in order to increase their attractiveness, some golf courses have focused on family spirit, with the course located in larger complexes and diverse activities. In Deva, the Exclusive Golf course is connected to a high-quality resort and spa, promising rest and tranquility after playing. Boulouparis also invites visitors to explore a resort with multiple activities besides golf. This can satisfy fans of the game, but also their families, who may be less skilled with drivers, wood, irons, and putters.
