all the fine features normally found on a course near
the sea including gently rolling fairways, immaculate
contoured greens and strategically placed bunkers and
The Par 72 layout, measuring 6125 metres from the back
tees, is spread over two undulating valleys and provides
a natural habitat for a wide variety of flora and fauna.
It's design keeps to Sir Henry Cotton's philosophy that
a golf course should be testing for low handicap players
but provide an enjoyable game for the average club player.
The opening nine holes are caressed by soft Atlantic
breezes and offer fine views of the bay of Lagos while
the back nine is set over rolling slopes further inland,
include the remarkable Henry Cotton Challenge, possibly
the longest Par 5 in Europe.
A friendly clubhouse provides a spacious elegantly appointed
bar and restaurant overlooking the 18th green, a well
equipped pro shop, and changing rooms. At the driving
range there is an excellent golf academy with extensive
coaching and practice facilities.
Only owners of Alto Golf and Country Club properties
can enjoy membership of the Golf Club and use of the
numerous facilities of the Country Club.
