Why New Caledonia is the perfect year-round destination for golfers


If you enjoy stunningly picturesque golf courses, a cloudless sky, temperatures averaging 25°C and a light onshore breeze, then it is certainly worth considering a trip to the sun soaked island of New Caledonia. Many golfers would say this is the ideal climate for a round of golf. Fortunately, New Caledonia is just a few hours away from Australia and has 4 picturesque golf courses to choose from.

 

Sheraton Deva

 

Spread across the beautiful landscape of the west coast of Grand Terre (New Caledonia’s main island), stands Exclusiv Golf by Dye Designs, an 18-hole course part of Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Resort & Spa. The first Dye Designs course in Oceania, it offers players a spectacular view over the Bourail lagoon and UNESCO World Heritage barrier reef.

 

Try your hand at the sport or perfect your advanced swing on a complimentary daily basis with this five-night package New Caledonia Travel Connection currently have on offer. For $1,749 per person, stay in one of the resort’s signature Traditional Bungalows where the interior decoration has been inspired by Melanesian culture and traditions. Sheraton New Caledonia Deva Resort & Spa is ideal for non-golfers too, with plenty of activities such as snorkelling, pétanque and cycling.

 

Deva's 11th Hole

 

Back to golfers, though. Are you ready to practice your swing in a tournament? The Australasian PGA Legends Tour will be taking place at the Sheraton’s Exclusiv Golf by Dye Designs from 11 to 16 September this year. Find out more about the event here

 

According to Gary Smokey Dawson, OAM Professional Golfer, “Deva Golf Course is a wonderful test of golf set amongst some of the most picturesque scenery anywhere in the world. You will not be disappointed with any hole on the course with tee boxes suitable for every standard of golfer from the absolute novice to a top professional golfer. The practice facilities are fantastic and provide you with the perfect warm up facility before you embark on this wonderful South Pacific Golfing journey. Brilliant Dye Course.”

New Caledonia boasts another three courses located closer to the capital of Noumea for you to play at. Save $1,000 per person if you stay at Chateau Royal Beach Resort & Spa which is located a 10-minute drive from Tina Golf Course. Tee off at this par 72 with the lagoon as a backdrop. Dumbea and La Ouenghi are great courses to which New Caledonia Travel Connection will happily organise day trips to with transfers included.
