golf holidays south pacific islands

There's only really one place to visit for a golf holiday in the South Pacific and that is Fiji which boast several very good championship courses. Other challenging golf courses include three on Samoa, and one each in New Caledonia and Tahiti. For the other South Pacific destinations there are golf courses serving local golfers well enough but not to the standards expected from golf enthusiasts.

# 1 - Fiji

The best course in the South Pacific is the very scenic, hilly and long Natadola Golf Course. There are three other championship golf courses in Fiji , all on the main island of Viti Levu: Denarau, Pacific Harbour and Suva.

# 2 - Samoa

Samoa has three excellent golf courses, two in the hills surrounding Apia plus the new Penina Golf Course at Aggie Grey's Lagoon Resort. All are on Upolu and within an hour drive from one another making a fun golf holiday in Samoa a good option for golf lovers.

# 3 - French Polynesia

Along the south west coast of Tahiti and with pleasant mountain views is the Olivier Bréaud International Golf Course whilst on Moorea, try the new 18-hole Moorea Green Pearl Golf Course with plenty of bunkers and waterways and with its signature hole down by the sea.

# 4 - New Caledonia

The country's only 18-hole championship course, the Paillottes de la Ouenghi, is located amongst the mountains of Boulouparis, 15-minutes drive north of the international airport and just over an hour drive from Noumea. Closer to Noumea is Golf De Dumbea, a very scenic course set in a valley and surrounded by mountains.

# 5 - Vanuatu

There's an 18-hole golf course on a flat landscape about ten minutes drive west of Port Vila.

# 6 - Cook Islands

Join the locals with a round at the Rarotonga Golf Club every Friday afternoon - it's a 9-hole short course but its more about the company than course condition here..

# 7 - Tonga

There's a short 9-hole course in the centre of Tongatapu about twenty minutes drive from Nuku'alofa Town..
