Natadola is the most expensive golf course in Fiji, with greenfees a pretty steep $250. That does include a cart, and guests of the nearby Intercontinental resort get discounts (it depends on time of year, what package you book etc. but expect somewhere in the vicinity of a $60-70 discount).So it's not a cheap venue by any means, but perhaps once you stand on the tee and look at the picture perfect view, you just might understand why.
This is a true links style championship course, and I have been told that there are over 30 groundsmen employed. So the course is immaculate. That's not to say it's easy to play, it's not. Get into the wild grasses lining the fairway, and you can say goodbye to your ball. And the greens are tricky too, with subtle breaks.
But the course is a joy to play... as long as the breeze isn't too strong. Being coastal, wind really is a factor here, so practice your low punch shots. For somebody like myself that hits a high ball, you really have to take the wind into consideration.

They have a beautiful Pacific Island styled clubhouse... it really does look impressive as you come up the 18th fairway. And inside doesn't disappoint either.The open air bar/restaurant is perfect for relaxing with a meal and beer, and just taking in the view.
The pro shop is well stocked, with everything you need, including plenty of Natadola branded clothing. There is a good sized driving range and of course you can book lessons with a PGA qualified pro.
