Whether its fam­i­lies, hon­ey­moon­ers or Tru­man Bur­bank of the 1998 block­buster film, Fiji has al­ways been one the world’s most de­sir­able hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions.

The trop­i­cal par­adise is a jewel in the crown of the South Pa­cific – and is renowned for its palm-lined beaches and crys­tal-clear la­goons.

Its golf fa­cil­i­ties are of wor­thy note, too. Es­pe­cially Nata­dola Bay Golf Course, which hosts the an­nual Fiji In­ter­na­tional. The cham­pi­onship course opened in 2009 and was de­signed by Fi­jian golf­ing le­gend and for­mer World No.1 Vi­jay Singh, who worked with Greg Letsche to re­design 10 of the 18 holes in 2016.

Now, Nata­dola Bay Golf Course has part­nered with The Sher­a­ton & Westin Re­sorts on De­na­rau to of­fer a range of fan­tas­tic stay and play pack­ages.

The pick of the bunch, how­ever, has been la­belled ‘Golf­ing Heaven’ and in­cludes: Fivenights’ deluxe ac­com­mo­da­tion in an Ocean Breeze room for two peo­ple, in­clu­sive of buf­fet break­fast; two rounds of golf for two play­ers at Nata­dola Bay, in­clu­sive of re­turn trans­fers; and two rounds of golf at De­na­rau Golf & Rac­quet Club.

De­na­rau boasts an in­ter­est­ing 6,538-me­tre par-72 lay­out, which was de­signed by Ei­ichi Mo­to­bashi and fea­tures quirky bunkers in the shape of ma­rine crea­tures.

The five-night pack­age starts at $3,999 (Fi­jian dol­lars) for all book­ings made be­tween April 1 and Oc­to­ber 14, 2018. Quote “GOLF FIJI” when mak­ing your book­ing via email to amitesh.chan­dra@sher­a­ton.com.

The 4th hole at Nata­dola Bay is just one of the 15 holes that play along­side the Pa­cific Ocean.

The 15th hole typ­i­cally plays down­wind – and a haz­ard awaits be­hind the green.
