The Golf Course is the foundation of the Longonot Gate Development project.The Kingdom City Golf Course, is an 18-hole par 72 championship course at the foothills of the picturesque Mount Longonot, stands out as among the best African golf courses.
It adds to Irishman David Jones’ 17 great golf course design feats. He describes the course as an “African Savannah Golf Course”, sensitive to the environment and the setting, and set against a dramatic and eye-catching landscape. It is a world-class golf course that features interesting greens and provides amazing views. It is overlooked by Mount Longonot at the back and overlooks the beautiful Lake Naivasha in front. With some 206 houses interspersed along the course it is a magnificent scene to behold.
A fairly long course, it has some seriously challenging holes featuring massively undulating fairways and tropical savannah vegetation; it severely punishes poorly directed shots.
With 50 years experience playing on many different courses in the world, Jones had no difficulties on the design concept of the course. Besides, having climbed Mt Longonot in 1989, he has an impeccable knowledge of the surrounding area. The course is envisaged to be ready for use by golfers in August, 2015.
