The Gambia Golf Courses and Clubs
(The Gambia, GM, Western Africa)
If you are a keen golfer holidaying in The Gambia and looking to play a round, then there really is only one golf course that you will hear mentioned time and time again - the Fajara Club. Open to paying players staying in The Gambia and featuring a par-69 layout, the Fajara Club is an exceedingly popular 18-hole golf course spread over around 4,750 metres / 15,585 feet, with equipment hire, golf caddies and weekend tournaments.
Further sports facilities are available at the club, such as badminton, squash and tennis courts, as well as a swimming pool. The clubhouse is better known as the Nineteenth Hole and features a bar and restaurant, serving hot food and snacks, with views across the golf course itself.
The Fajara Club
The Fajara Club is located in the Kombo North area and has a fairly relaxed dress code, which consists of shorts or skirt, together with a shirt with a collar and sleeves, i.e. not a T-shirt. Accommodation in the form of residential apartments is available close by.
Many people come to the Fajara Club not only to play golf, but also to enjoy a spot of birdwatching. The beachfront and its array of coastal attractions is also on hand and is just a short walk away.
