Sigona Golf Club
The very lovely Sigona Golf Club is about a fifteen-to twenty-minute drive northwest of Nairobi heading towards Lake Naivasha, sitting almost halfway between Nairobi and Limuru. The Club has a beautiful eighteen-hole country-style golf course which has become very popular with residents and visitors.

It has a fine reputation for having some of the most beautiful fairways in Kenya. Sitting near the Rift Valley at an altitude of 6,600 feet (2200m), Sigona receives more than average rainfall. The Kikuyu grass keeps the course looking lush and verdant year round. The green keeper tells: "any player can use almost any golf club, from his driver to his sand wedge, off these fairways". The course is very hilly and most of the eighteen tees are elevated. It is one course which will definitely test your golf skills along with your physical conditioning. Sigona provides a tough but very pleasant 18 holes of golf.

Day 3 Nairobi

Breakfast at the hotel and depart for another golf filled day at the Karen Golf and Country Club. Drive past the Nairobi National Park and proceed to Karen area. Considered by some to be one of the prettiest courses in Kenya because of its profusion of flowering trees and bushes, Karen Golf and Country Club should never be missed out. It is certainly one of the top 18-hole championship courses in the city (Yardage 6893 Par 72-18 holes.) You will most definitely enjoy your golfing here, and will remain with fond recollections. Have lunch at the Karen Golf and Country Club, and then visit the museum of Karen Blixen, the author of Out Of Africa before returning to the Windsor Golf and Country Club. Dinner on own arrangements. Overnight at WINDSOR GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB (bed & breakfast).

Karen Golf & Country Club
Home of the Kenya Open 2004 and 2005. Considered by some to be one of the prettiest courses in Kenya because of its profusion of flowering trees and bushes, Karen Country Club is a must play. It is certainly one of the top 18-hole championship courses in the country. The course is next to the house of Karen Blixen - the author of "Out of Africa" and situated in the colonial suburb of Karen. Karen Country Club is a delightful course to play. You will most likely think back on your round of golf here, with fond recollections.

Day 4 Nairobi/ Aberdares

After an early breakfast at the Club, depart for the drive to Nyeri and on arrival, proceed to the Nyeri Golf and Country Club for Golf and lunch. Later drive to the Outspan Hotel. Dinner and overnight at THE OUTSPAN HOTEL (full board) – www.aberdaresafarihotels.com

Nyeri Sports Club
Nyeri Sports Club is the second oldest course in the country, founded in 1910. This 9-hole course is laid out in a superb setting and offers exquisite scenery. While standing on the tee of the 6th, Mt Kenya can be seen looming above the green giving a breathtaking view of nature in all its glory. The greens are well bunkered with both sand and grass traps. The roughs are the highest you will find anywhere as the layout skirts around a thick forest of very tall evergreens. Add to this mixture a stream and a valley, and you have the recipe for a difficult game of golf. Nyeri's golf course is very pretty indeed and highly recommended for play for the ardent and the family golfer.

Day 5 Aberdares/ Mount Kenya

After breakfast drive to Nanyuki arriving to a buffet lunch at the famous Mount Kenya Safari Club, founded by the late film star William Holden. The afternoon is spent playing golf at this prestigious club, which sits on the Equator facing Kenya's highest mountain, snow-capped Mount Kenya. This is the only golf course where you can actually play golf in the north and south hemispheres at the same time. Dinner and overnight at MOUNT KENYA SAFARI CLUB (full board) – www.fairmont.com

Mount Kenya Safari Club
Mount Kenya Safari Club is an experience that the visitor must include in his or her itinerary. Nowhere in the world do you come face to face with one of nature's greatest anomalies - a snowcapped mountain lying on the equator! This exclusive rich man's retreat opened in 1959. Despite the fact that this is a 9 hole pitch and putt, composed entirely of par 3 holes, it is absolutely brutal. While the course is laid out on one of the most beautiful and serene settings in Africa, you have to be very accurate. The water hazards are many and coupling with the splendid views of Mount Kenya from virtually every hole on the course with the variety of flowers and birds decorating it, the golfer is sure to leave Mt. Kenya with lasting memories. Play on North and Southern hemisphere at the same time.

Day 6 Mount Kenya/ Nakuru/ Naivasha

Rift Valley Golf Club
The yardage is 6580 (6017 M) par 71-18 holes. Although still taking root, the course looks set to earn major international kudos for its spectacular setting and challenging character. The first player to break the 71 par here, the Irish professional David Jones, described it as the best young course he has ever played on. This Thomas Fjaasd designed course is a pleasure to play for the golfing tourist. Stunning views and lush greens will make your round of golf a special one
