TEE OFF FOR THE PERFECT ROUND AT THE NEWLY RENOVATED GREENS BOASTING THE BACKDROP OF THE INDIAN OCEAN AT VELAA PRIVATE ISLAND, MALDIVES
The Velaa Golf Academy by Olazabal welcomes golf lovers to its newly renovated grounds. Set with the background of the Indian Ocean and lush greenery, this magnificent course lifts the standard for a truly unique golfing experience. Managed by Troon International and designed by ex-Ryder cup captain Jose Maria Olazabel – renowned for his short game mastery - the seven-hole course is ideal for the perfect afternoon tee off.
Professionals of the game can perfect their swing while enjoying an unrivalled backdrop of the region’s unique nature, while beginners can take advantage of the Velaa Golf academy’s one-on-one training with PGA professionals aided by the swing technology. In addition, the course is also equipped with the track man simulator to enhance the golf session.
Gavin Campbell recently joined the island as the new in-house Pro Golfer. He commented, “I have been playing professional golf for over 28 years now and I have to say, this one of the best golf courses, I played on. Of course, the course itself is up to the highest standards but the beauty that surrounds you as you take your first swing would make even a non-golf lover want to play here.”
Whatever the weather, the indoor teaching studio allows guests to practice from the comfort of an air-conditioned area whilst still playing to the undulating landscape outside offering unparalleled views to the resort’s picturesque coast. Top-of-the-range software helps players delve into the likes of swing analysis using Trackman simulators to ensure every trip creates a better player and works on improving the handicap.
With a putting green and tuition programmes for all levels and ages, the whole family can enjoy this sporting holiday in the middle of the Indian Ocean while indulging in the luxurious resort situated in the Noonu Atoll. For more information, please visit: https://www.velaaprivateisland.com
