The Seychelles isn’t one of the first places to spring to mind when booking a golf break, more like a honeymoon or a scuba diving trip.
There’s not even a full 18 holes of golf to tempt you to check your clubs onto the plane – the golf course on the mainland island of Mahe is a 9-holer.
That hasn’t stopped the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles from launching an innovative new golfing experience that turns the Indian Ocean into a driving range.
The Sunset Golf Experience is a one-hour golf practice session, teeing off at 6pm each evening on the island’s Petite Anse beach, when golfers can drive as many balls as they wish into the clear turquoise waters.
Don’t worry about vast numbers of fish and other marine life being knocked unconscious by flying Titleist golf balls, the specially designed driving range balls are Ecoibioballs and degrade within 48-hours releasing fish food into the water.
To add to the fun there are lots of distance markers in the bay so you know how far you are hitting the ball.
Only one session takes place per evening, with each costing €40. The price includes 20 Ecobioballs, a cocktail, use of clubs and driving mats; service charge and local taxes are extra.
