Every Saturday we showcase a new destination in our 18 post series of International Golf Travel Destinations. Previously we showcased Australia and Malaysia, today we will be showcasing the beautiful Pacific island of Fiji.
Fiji is a beautiful tropical archipelago of islands and an excellent golfing destination with several championship golf courses that are must play courses.
Three hours from Auckland, fours hours from Brisbane, Australia, five hours from Hawaii and ten hours from Singapore, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Los Angeles, Fiji is very accessible with major airline carries flying to and from Nadi International Airport.
Catering for all travelers, Fiji offers an excellent selection of world class luxury accommodation including the exquisite private island retreat of Dolphin Island.

With excellent premium helicopter transport options, this is the perfect place for the discerning golf traveler to base themselves in Fiji.
Fiji has a number of golf courses including two major championship golf courses.
Next week the Fiji International Golf Tournament will be played at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course. This championship course is located on the west coast of Fiji's main island Viti Levu and has stunning views across the Pacific Ocean.
Closer to the capital city of Nadi, the Denarau Golf and Racquet Club is home to Fiji's premier championship golf course. Located as part of the Sheraton Fiji Resort the course is lined with coconut palms and presents a number of water hazards which requires thinking and a solid game to navigate by.
