The 9 hole golf course in Cap Skirring is located in an exceptional setting along the Atlantic Ocean. It is a facility beginners can enjoy, and one where experienced players can get the challenges to match their skills. Players can enjoy a game on the fine sand or on the field with coconut trees. The resort also offers a golf academy, a driving range, a training bunker and a putting-green.
