In the morning a relaxed round of golf on a well-kept shady course in the green, in the afternoon relaxation on the long sandy beach of the Mediterranean: This is what a golf holiday in Tunisia looks like.
If you are a beginner and would like to learn how to play golf or are simply looking for a change from the local fairways, the Tunisian seaside resort of Hammamet is just the place for you: the golf courses "Citrus" and "Yasmine" offer numerous challenges on well-kept greens and are just a few minutes' drive from TUI MAGIC LIFE Africana. Discover golf as a hobby during your first introductory course or improve your handicap under the mild African autumn sun. The green fee in Tunisia is relatively low and there is no lack of amenities such as electric trolleys, buggies and rental clubs.
Combine the golf game in Hammamet with other leisure activities in the resort and on the beach and don't forget to discover the fascinating travel destination Tunisia. The capital Tunis and the ruins of legendary Carthage are just a stone's throw away!
A relaxing round of golf in the fresh air in nice company is something that more and more people are discovering for themselves.
The basic rules of the sport are simple: on a golf course with 9 or 18 holes the goal is to manoeuvre the golf ball over a greater distance into the respective hole. However, obstacles such as hills, sand bunkers and water will get in the way. With a successful tee shot, you will ideally be able to get the ball right to the green, an area of very closely trimmed grass surrounding the hole. This is where the "putt" requires finesse so that the ball rolls into the hole. Even experienced golfers train their tee shot and the right putt for years to improve their handicap.
Why not practice under the mild North African sun? Tunisia's leading seaside resort Hammamet south of the capital Tunis offers two attractive golf courses: the 18-hole golf course Yasmine and the neighbouring golf club Citrus. It offers three golf courses, a driving range and a practice area. The entire complex is located on a beautifully landscaped 173 hectare site with six lakes, shady forests and olive groves. Beginners & professionals can choose between the 9-hole course "The Executive" and the two 18-hole courses "Les Oliviers" and "La Forêt". The handicap for men and women is 36.
If you want to upgrade your golf equipment or need new golf clothing, you can stock up at the club's Pro Shop. The club's own Golf Academy offers courses for beginners and advanced golfers as well as individual lessons in order to obtain your license to play or to further improve one's own handicap. In the beginner courses, novices can familiarize themselves with the etiquette of the game of golf and the golf rules as well as learn the right swing.
The golf clubs Citrus and Yasmine are only a few minutes drive from TUI MAGIC LIFE Africana on the long sandy beach of Hammamet. A shuttle service is available (subject to a charge). The resort's staff is happy to book suitable tee times in advance. After a morning round of golf you can relax on the beach or at the pools of the resort. A pampering program in the oriental Hamam makes tired golfers' legs awake again. Learning to play golf has never been so relaxing! Thanks to the mild climate, playing golf in Tunisia is possible all year round. It is particularly pleasant in spring and autumn when the temperatures are warm but not too hot.
