While Macau is known as an international mecca for gambling, it’s also attracting a reputation as a gorgeous place to play golf — and when you book a room at Altira Macau, you can confidently pack along a few golf shirts to use during your stay. Playing golf is definitely a luxury pursuit on Macau and guests at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel can indulge in this pastime easily. The par-71 course at Caesars Golf Macau is one of the most accessible courses in Macau. Fourteen of its scenic 18 holes are near water, especially the challenging 16th hole. Caesars Golf Macau also features an outpost of The Butch Harmon School, which offers clinics and classes designed by the famous PGA golfer. Caesars Golf Macau is a just 20-minute drive from Altira Macau.
Even though it seems like we offer our guests everything under the sun at Altira Macau, the hotel does not have its own golf course. But don’t stash your clubs just yet — we are close to Caesar’s Golf Macau, arguably one of the most distinctive golf courses in Asia. Located at the southern end of the Cotai entertainment district (and a 10-minute drive from the Taipa Ferry Terminal and the Macau International Airport), the 175-acre facility covers five percent of the entire city and features a semi-private 18-hole course with a full-length practice range. The course is also home to the Butch Harmon School of Golf, which features a junior program, signature clinics and private lessons.
