There are five 18 hole golf courses on the island, several 9 hole courses and many practice courses. Most of them belong to the hotels. Those hosting international competitions are Bellemare Plage, Touessrok(on the east coast) and Paradis (at the foot of Mount Morne, on the south west end). There will usually be special rates or even free entry for the clients of the hotel.
