Designed by Peter Matkovich

The Great Rift Valley Golf Course in Kenya was designed by the distinguished South African golf course architect, Peter Matkovich. Known for his ability to harmonize natural landscapes with challenging golfing experiences, Matkovich’s design capitalizes on the stunning terrain of the Rift Valley.

The Great Rift Valley Golf Course is a premier 18-hole championship course set against the backdrop of Kenya’s iconic Great Rift Valley. The course offers a unique and exhilarating golfing experience, characterized by dramatic elevation changes, lush fairways, and panoramic views of Lake Naivasha and the surrounding escarpments. Golfers can expect a challenging yet rewarding round, with strategically placed hazards and undulating greens that demand precision and strategy.

Hole 9 – Par 5: Known for its length and the natural beauty surrounding it, this hole features a double dogleg fairway and a green that is guarded by a water hazard. It provides a thrilling challenge for long hitters.

Hole 18 – Par 4: The finishing hole is a dramatic par 4 that plays downhill with a stunning view of Lake Naivasha. The approach shot to the green is particularly challenging due to strategically placed bunkers and water hazards.
