VIPINGO RIDGE GOLF RESORT *****
North Coast - Mombasa
the Baobab 18 Holes – Par 72 – 6653 metres


Vipingo Ridge is the latest sensation on golf in Kenya. This development of 36 holes opened the first 18 holes – The Baobab - in July 2009. Vipingo Ridge has a lot to offer due to its unique location.  Situated in the centre of a 2,500 acre former sisal estate, the property rises from just above sea level to a 140 metre high ridge before falling off again to the scenic lake and game conservation area to the west of the site.

The two 18 hole golf courses, of which one is still under construction, at Vipingo Ridge, designed by David Jones, are the first in East Africa to be built to a truly international standard, with the world renowned USGA specification being used for all aspects of the course. The large and undulating greens are cultivated with fine Bermuda grasses to guarantee fast and true putting surfaces.

A meandering system of waterfalls, lakes and streams runs through both courses giving a real risk-reward quality to many holes and also creating new natural habitats for birds and wildlife. Extensive fairway modeling and the planting of thousands of new trees ensured that every hole has strategic elements to bring interest and enjoyment.
