Championship golf is never too far away at Amanresorts.
At Amanjena in Marrakech, Morocco, the Amelkis Golf course lies adjacent to the resort, with splendid views of the High Atlas Mountains from its challenging fairways. A second course, Royal Golf de Marrakech, is just a few minutes drive away.
Similarly, at Amanusa on Bali’s southern coast, the Bali National Golf Resort lies just below the resort. Currently closed for renovations for the duration of 2012 and into early 2013 and named one of Asia’s five best courses, complimentary clubs and preferential tee times make it hard for guests to resist a round. On Bali, three other championship courses are also available, the New Kuta Golf course, Nirwana Bali Golf Club and the Bali Handara Country Club.
In Central Java, and hour’s drive from Amanjiwo, the Peter Thomson-designed 18-hole Mount Merapi Golf Course is a scenic haven for golfers and sightseers alike. Located on the slope of Indonesia’s most active volcano, it’s also a cool escape at an altitude of about 1,000m.
At Amanpuri on the tropical island of Phuket, golfers enjoy their pick of five international-standard championship golf courses, all lying within a 30 to 40-minute drive of the resort. Tee times can be arranged and complimentary use of clubs is provided.
At Amanyara, in the sunny Turks and Caicos Islands, the Providenciales Golf club is a 40-minute drive from the resort and is rated amongst the top 10 courses in the Caribbean. Designed by Karl Litten, the 18-hole course is a combination of lush greens and fairways, rugged limestone outcroppings and freshwater lakes. A four-tee position system offers a formidable test for golfers of all skill levels.
At Amangani in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the valley offers two golf courses: Teton Pines Resort & Golf Club, an Arnold Palmer-designed course, and Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis, shaped by Robert Trent Jones Jr.
Not far from Amankora Thimphu, one of five Amankora lodge locations across the pristine valleys and high mountain passes of the Kingdom of Bhutan, the country’s capital city of Thimphu provides golfing action: a nine-hole course with a majestic backdrop of the capital’s administrative Tashichoe Dzong is set at 2,800m above sea level. Tee times can be arranged by Amankora.
