The Avalon Golf Estate has both an 18-hole and a 9-hole international standard golf course, set in the heart of nature in Bois Chéri, Savanne. Peter Matkovich’s unique touch is characterised by lush green, all-season fairways, exceptional bunkering and an astute use of rivers and ravines. The championship tees (gold) measure 6318 metres, the Club tees (white) measure 5847 metres, the men’s tees (blue) 5499 metres and the ladies’ tees (red) 4899 metres.
The course is perhaps best known for its hole #4. The tee shot is played from a tee along an elevated ridgeline, across a ravine, to a fairway situated well below the tees. A breath-taking tee shot, but demanding nonetheless.
The layout of the course was designed with the South-East Trade Wind in mind. All par 3’s and par 5’s play in different directions, thus providing the golfer with varying conditions throughout the round.
The course is the only inland golf course on the island and is therefore accessible to all. The stunning landscape with colourful plants alongside the fairways makes the course feel like a beautiful garden. Due to its distinctive natural features, some call the Avalon Golf Club the Garden of Eden.
