Golf in Angola?
Yes, there is 18 hole golf course located about 15 km south from Luanda (the only one in the country). Far from being a indicator of broad national progress, this course is managed by one of the oil exploration companies and used mainly by expatriate employees of all industries. Even with a small, emerging middle and upper Angolan social class who are exploring this sport, this luxury is beyond the interest and economic capabilities of 95% of all Angolans.
Course rates are affordable, comparatively speaking; the green fee is 2000 Kz (USD$22) and caddy fee 1500 Kz (USD$15)!
