The Rössmund Golf Course (Swakopmund, Namibia, on South Western coastline of Africa) is a true Desert Golf Course with all 18 holes grassed from tee to green.
The Rössmund Golf Course is unique in the world. It is one of only five full green fairway desert courses on the planet, yet it may be the only one where springbok footprints endanger your lie! It is a full 72 par golf course up to world standards providing a true golfing challenge in a stunning environment. The course was designed by Gary Player.
On most golf courses, sand traps are dispersed throughout grass fairways. But in Namibia, grass fairways are dispersed throughout the sand. This inversion generates a tough challenge, and provides a unique juxtaposition of nature’s beauty and man’s inventiveness.
The Rossmund Golf Club offers the unique experience of playing golf in the cool Atlantic breeze, with the warm desert sun on your skin and in the company of docile springbok wandering across the fairways. Golfing on this 6 068 m par 72 fully grassed 18-hole golf course with its year-round quality fairways and slick greens is enormously rewarding. A large floodlight putting green and a driving range are available for honing one’s golfing skills.
Green fees are reasonably priced and golf cars are available. The modern change and locker rooms at Rossmund’s Club House answer to all possible requirements.
The Rossmund Golf Club Restaurant with its large outdoor deck overlooking the fairways and the 18th green is an ideal setting for a sundowner. Well-prepared meals are served seven days a week.
