Golfing:18 hole course

The 18-hole championship course at 7,000 feet on the Eburru Range is both challenging and exciting. Sitting on the Mau Escarpment in the Great Rift Valley, the course commands stunning vistas of Lake Naivasha, Mount Longonot, the Kinangop Range and Aberdare Mountains. The golf resort is famous for one the longest holes in Kenya - the par 5 - 17th ‘signature’ at 598 metres (654 yards)!

The well watered golf course has contoured greens built to USGA specs with “tiffgreen” grass. The three teeing positions and the fairways are planted to the indigenous Kikuyu grass which remain green and lush throughout the year. All golf holes are well bunkered, and there are five water features on the course.

The air is fresh, temperatures range between 16º - 34º c. Rains are generally at night and golf is played the year round 12 hours a day.

Golfers give right of way to the wild animals who have taken residence on the lush fairways and tiny islets in the ponds. Flocks of Black-headed Oriole, Fischers Lovebirds and Egyptian geese sun themselves on the greens without batting an eyelid at the golfers.

Short Overview

From its panoramic perch above Lake Naivasha, the Great Rift Valley Lodge enjoys one of humankind’s oldest views – over the sweeping floor of the world’s largest valley.
