Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course

Natadola Bay blends world class golf architecture with dramatic landscapes from rolling pastures through to absolute beachfront. With the sparkling backdrop of coral reefs and the Pacific Ocean on 15 out of the 18 holes, keeping your concentration will certainly be a challenge!

Styled in traditional South Pacific architecture the clubhouse is the ultimate vantage point for breathtaking views across the golf course, coral reefs and rolling surf breaks. No round will be complete without enjoying a meal and a beverage from the open air bar and restaurant.

Measuring 6,566 metres from the championship tees, the par 72 championship standard golf course boasts up to 5 tee positions on each hole, providing an enjoyable challenge to players of all skill levels.

Natadola Bay was officially opened for play in June 2009 with the staging of the Fijian Open, won by then Rookie Professional Matt Griffin. The course has since hosted the 2010 Fiji Open, the 2011 Nomura Cup and the 2012 Natadola Bay Fiji Classic.
