Quick Tips for Golfing in Fiji

  • Dress in appropriate golfing attire at Fiji’s prestigious golf courses. Men must wear golf slacks or shorts with belt loops, collared shirts, golf footwear with socks. For the ladies, golf slacks, culottes, skirts, dresses or shorts must be worn at an acceptable length, tops must have a collar or sleeves, and golfing footwear must be worn
  • Most resort courses and club courses have a more relaxed approach when it comes to clothing. However, you will still need pants or a skirt that covers the upper leg to respect the local customs when playing and local golf clubs
  • Green fees range from anywhere between free for guests at resorts with a golf course to FJ$40 for city golf courses to around FJ$160 for more premium golf courses like Denarau
  • There’s no need to bring your own clubs to Fiji, as all golf courses and clubs have all the gear available to hire or are included in your stay at some resorts. Look out for golf courses with inclusions in the green fee, such as the golf cart that is included in Denarau.

Laucala Island

An off-shore island of Taveuni, Laucala Island is home to Fiji’s only seven-star resort and, naturally, a full Championship golf course exclusively for guests. The course is set on an established coconut plantation where one of the laneways leads onto the beach, making it tide dependent.
