Golf in the Seychelles
No other courses on the island of Praslin, but tere is another golf course on the main island of Mahe, gateway to the Seychelles.
• Seychelles Golf Club (1960's)
9 holes - 4.922 yards - Par 68
Tucked away on the Southeastern coast of the island of Mahe, this challenging little 9-hole golf course beckons you to its spectacular fairways. Spread over just 50 acres of what was a mangrove swamp barely five decades ago, this nine hole course is deceptively short. The holes are repeated over the back nine from totally different tee-boxes but played to the same greens and pin positions.
The fairways, some of which are treacherously narrow, are lined mostly by tall, swaying coconut palms and the odd, strategically placed takamaka and casuarina tree. These have stood silent witnesses to the numerous hooks and slices as well as many spectacular drives and miraculous escapes.
The banks of the water hazards are populated by a tribe of red crabs dedicated to crawling away with mishit golf balls! The course is also a sort of bird sanctuary and one can often spot rare migratory birds while walking to their next shot.
The Republic of Seychelles comprises 115 islands covering 455 km² in the Indian Ocean. This archipelago of outstanding beauty extends a few degrees south of the equator and lies between 480km and 1,600km from the east coast of Africa. Of these 115 islands, 41 Inner Islands constitute the oldest mid-oceanic granite islands on earth while a further 74 form the 5 groups of low-lying coral atolls and reef islets that are the Outer Islands.
The granitic islands of the Seychelles archipelago cluster around the main island of Mahé, home to the international airport and the capital, Victoria, and its satellites Praslin and La Digue. Together, these Inner Islands form the cultural and economic hub of the nation and contain the majority of Seychelles’ tourism facilities as well as its most stunning beaches.
Seychelles is home to no less than two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the legendary Vallée de Mai on Praslin where the wondrously shaped Coco-de-mer nut grows high on ancient palms and fabled Aldabra, the world’s largest raised coral atoll.
Seychelles is a comparatively young nation which can trace its first settlement back to 1770 when the islands were first settled by the French, leading a small party of whites, Indians and Africans. The islands remained in French hands until the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo, evolving from humble beginnings to attain a population of 3,500 by the time Seychelles was ceded to Britain under the treaty of Paris in 1814. Under the British, Seychelles achieved a population of some 7,000 by the year 1825. Important estates were established during this time producing coconut, food crops, cotton and sugar cane. During this period Seychelles also saw the establishment of Victoria as her capital, the exile of numerous troublemakers from the Empire and the economic repercussions of the abolition of slavery. Seychelles achieved independence from Britain in 1976 and became a republic within the commonwealth.
In the evolution of its society, Seychelles has remained faithful to its multi-ethnic roots. For over two centuries, the islands have remained a melting pot of different races, traditions and religions from the four corners of the earth. Inspired by its grand diversity of cultural influences, ethnic diversity with racial harmony remain the mainstays of today's vibrant yet tranquil Creole nation for which harmony is a way of life. Seychelles has an estimated population of 90,000, composed of people who have emigrated to the island. The largest ethnic groups are those of African, French, Indian, and Chinese descent. French and English are official languages along with Seychellois Creole, which is primarily based upon French.
