Africa and Middle East Best Stay & Play Golf Resorts



Best Stay & Play Golf Resorts in Africa & Middle East


Africa covers 20% of the planet's entire land mass. Its major countries and business destinations serve the needs of golfing enthusiasts with an outstanding selection of stay and play golf resorts and hotels.

If you're planning a visit to Mauritius, Morocco, South Africa or the United Arab Emirates alone, with family, your partner or your golfing buddies, you will want to see our reviews and ratings of the best stay and play golf destinations at these locations. 

As you would imagine, South Africa takes the lion's share of top stay and play golf resorts in the continent, scattered across Cape Town, Durban, George, Johannesburg, Nelspruit and East London. Prominent five-star picks include Steenberg Golf Estate in Constantia wine valley, whose 18-hole championship layout, impressive hazards and hotel with a historic past, promise unforgettable experiences, and Sun City Resort named for the golf icon offers a challenging layout amidst a beautiful natural setting. 

Some may argue that the quality and luxury of the Middle East's plush buildings rival those in North America and Europe. Indeed, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Ras Al Khaimah have four and five star stay and play golf resorts that support the popular view. They include the Abu Dhabi Golf Club whose championship course offers brilliant bunkering, thoughtfully crafted holes by Peter Harradine, and mesmerizing clubhouse architecture, and The Address Montgomerie Dubai, an expansive golfing oasis with interesting features that enhance the excitement and challenge, and whose boutique guest rooms feature luxurious spa, dining and fitness facilities.   

Stay in five star comfort at Mauritius' Four Seasons Golf Club in Anahita, whose luxurious beachside accommodation offers stunning lagoon and mountain views. At the Paradis Hotel & Golf Club, the championship course tests your mettle and scenic views of the Indian Ocean and Black River Lagoon offer enough incentive to stick around for a few more rounds.

Also on our list is an icon of Mauritian golf – Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club – a Bernhard Langer design combining a technically challenging layout and landscape of lakes, gullies and volcanic outcrops. Stay at the five-star Le Touessrok Resort, whose oceanside rooms, Givenchy Spa and exclusive air has ranked it among the best hotels in the world. 

Morocco is steadily gaining a reputation as a desirable golfing destination. Our list comprises 14 stay and play golf resorts, including Mazagan Beach & Golf Resort featuring top-rated seaside links, luxury rooms, a world-class spa and the country's largest casino, as well as the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, with a championship golf course and comfortable accommodations located in proximity to the course.
