Manicured green grass, golden, powdery sand bunkers, tropical palm groves and glistening lakes all make up the most pristine 18-hole golf course in West Africa. The exclusive Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Estate is strategically located within reach of the heart of the bustling city centre, right on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, but just far enough to escape the daily chaos of Lagos life.

There is a unique sensation when you step onto Lakowe Lakes. Looking out onto the vast expanse of natural beauty, infused with a design that makes sense to a seasoned golfer but can be admired by all, it’s hard to imagine you are in Lagos.

The 55 hectare man-made lake at the heart of the estate is the statement piece, reconfirming the estate’s harmonious relationship with the ecosystem around it.

As golfers ride through the stunning estate, the hum of the golf cart and the light rattle of the golf clubs is music to their ears. And the sound of silence, when everything stops as a golfer goes for a swingthat singular moment between you, the ball and natureis simply priceless. It is those moments that make playing golf so special. It’s not just about the game, but about the lifestyle.

Lakowe Lakes Golf and Country Estate is more than just an impressive golf course. It is the epitome of what luxury living should be.

From the lavish villas at The Village and the homes in The Enclave, to the Corporate Lodge and Balinese-inspired Cottages, the living can be for life, or simply for one night. With opportunities to rent or time-share, there is no excuse not to enjoy all that Lakowe offers. The estate overlooks the pristine vistas of the golf course and lakes, comprised of lofts, apartments and luxury villas with state-of-the-art facilities for residents and guests to enjoy.

Among the exciting plans for 2018 is the Clubhouse, which will not only be a retreat from the sun after an 18-hole game of golf, but a place for members to meet. The Wellness Centre will include a spa, inspired by nature, that will indulge your senses and take you on a journey beyond the fareway.
