Four Seasons Seychelles Launches Overwater Golf Driving Range

Four Seasons Seychelles

When you’re located on an island, and geography limits your space and resources, why not get creative with hotel facilities? Case in point: For guests who are golf enthusiasts, the Four Seasons Seychelles is bypassing the conventional grass driving range and looking instead to the Indian Ocean. As reported by The Telegraph, the luxury resort has launched a Sunset Golf experience on the beach nightly at 6 pm. The Indian Ocean becomes the driving range- with yard markers placed in the water so that golfers can mark their progress.

But never fear, the bay won’t fill up with thousands of golf calls. The eco-conscious resort has replaced traditional golf balls with Ecobioballs- which biodegrade within 48 hours and release fish food into the water. Each one-hour session costs 40 euros including 20 Ecobioballs, a cocktail, use of clubs and driving mats. For more information, visit www.fourseasons.com/seychelles.
