There are three championship golf courses in Fiji, all on the main island of Viti Levu. Several smaller public courses can also be found, with one each on Vanua Levu and Taveuni. The Shangri-La Fijian Resort and Naviti Resort in West Viti Levu and the Wakaya Island Club and Naigani Island Resort in the Eastern Islands have their own private courses.

One of Fiji’s premier championship courses is laid out at the resort of Denarau Golf & Racquet Club and its generous, open fairways wind their way around stands of giant coconut palm trees and tidal waterways – with water hazards featuring on no fewer than 15 of the 18 holes!

With a par of 72, the course can be stretched to nearly 7,200 yards, accommodating serious as well as social golfers. All four tee shots at the par threes must carry over water and the shortest of these, the 173-yard 17th, is regarded as the signature hole on the course.

Demarau Golf & Racket Club is a flat resort course located near the ocean. Although most holes are monotonous, some are strong holes due to the length and well-placed bunkers. All par 4s require water carries but greenside bunkers come much more into play than the water. Most water hazards are not strategically placed, since it is a resort course to promote good scores. This course is suitable for beginners and intermediate players. Various palm trees enhance the tropical atmosphere.

Denarau Golf & Racquet Club 18th hole

There are three interesting holes. The par 3 175-yard 3rd is beautiful and it crosses over a lake. The green is two-tired, vertically long, and surrounded by four bunkers. The par 4 400-yard 12th is a slight dogleg to the left. The tee shot is over a river, and another river runs in front of the green, sloping sharply from back to front, protected by bunkers to the left, front-left, and right sides. The par 5 517-yard 18th is a straight hole in which rivers cross the fairway twice. The second river crosses just in front of the green, adding to the difficulty of the final approach shot.

Played here last year and the course wasn't as good as It looked online ..

Is certainly a spectator location just really was lacking in X factor I was

expecting a more challenging course ...seemed to me to be designed for looks rather than players enjoyment...still maybe another couple rounds I might well warm to the expanse layout

I never know why they have championship tees on a resort course. I am single figures, and yet from the back tees this course is no fun at all. Come forward and it makes a lot more sense, although I don't rate it as highly as others. The condition was excellent, however, even though I played it five times I just couldn't warm to it. Mind you, when you are staying at the resort, who cares, swimming pool bars can always cheer you up. Go for a holiday, take your clubs, just don't expect a magical golf course.
