What an experience this was. Had the pleasure of playing Leisure Lodge whilst on a three week tour of Kenya and it was a joy. I cant say I am used to playing golf in 40 degree searing African heat, but it was hugely enjoyable. The course doesnt rank particularly highly when compared to a number of courses from more golf friendly environments (namely Europe/The US) but given where you find this course it is fantastic. Loads of old school colonial charm, and a sign next to the huge fan that awaits you in the clubhouse reading 'please leave your firearms in the clubhouse' hark back to days gone by. Friendly service, brilliant setting for a beer after your round (you will need one!) on the veranda over looking the course and a brilliant - if not slightly surreal - experience.
