Just two kilometres away from the Country Club is the Golf Club and it's 18 hole golf course - the last to be designed by the late Sir Henry Cotton. It boasts all the fine features normally found on a course near the sea including gently rolling fairways, immaculate contoured greens and strategically placed bunkers and water hazards.

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.
