Campo de Golf de Saly

Golf de Saly (Route N1, Mbour): located 1 hour’s drive southeast of Dakar, this golf course (reputed to be the best in Senegal) was designed by Belgian national Vic Bernstein, and now has 18 holes. It is an extremely attractive course set amongst an abundance of greenery and flowering plants with numerous lakes and majestic baobab trees complimenting the landscape. Of the 18 holes, 7 have at least 1 water hazard. Technically, the course holds no major difficulties; you can play a long and easy game, or a shorter, more technical one. De noviembre a julio, las calles están secas y tendrás que colocar la pelota en un tee de invierno. From November to July, the fairways are dry and you will have to place the ball on a winter tee. However, the tees, greens and the area 50m before the green are all of excellent quality. 65 permanent staff members are on hand to assist you and make your time enjoyable. The Club House, which is of African design, has a panoramic bar overlooking the golf course, and changing rooms with showers are available for the comfort of the players. There is also a 16-bay driving range, a pitching green, a practice bunker, 2 putting greens and a pitch & putt. Caddies and trolleys are also available. The club also has a beautiful white sand beach ideal for taking a stroll after your game. See its website for more details: www.golfsaly.com
