Rotary Zanzibar & Fumba Town Golf Day

The Rotary Club of Zanzibar and Fumba Town are excitedly gearing up for our 4th annual Rotary Golf Day at Sea Cliff Resort and Spa.  Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 21st, 2020!

Last year, Golf Day attracted nearly 50 players, representing five countries, and ended with a fabulous gala dinner!  At our “19th Hole” dinner, Rotary and Fumba Town hosted 120 patrons, awarded generous prizes, and raised $18,000 to benefit the continuance of Makunduchi Hospital.  2018’s Golf Day was held on a sunny Saturday in September; we are bumping up our fundraiser to late March of 2020 and trust you will meet this change with even greater anticipation!

Our 2017 Golf Day, an equally massive success, raised $17,000 to benefit education in Zanzibar.  Zanzibari children stand in need of greater investments in their education and academic support. As recognized by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), education is the paramount solution to community upliftment and empowerment. The fourth SDG is to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning. The funds raised from Golf Day 2017 will serve children of Zanzibar in a tremendous way and impact their families and communities for generations to come.

 Our Inaugural Golf Day of 2016, kicked off with $16,000 to contribute towards building Makunduchi Hospital. In partnership with HIPZ, a Global Grant of $80,000 raised for the hospital, and our inaugural Golf Day, a whopping total of $114,000 was raised in the name of access to health.

The success of this annual fundraiser is thanks to the sponsors who give so generously. The Rotary Club of Zanzibar is very grateful for all their contributions and faith in our Club – without their loyal support and commitment, the event would not have been possible.

We aim to raise even more funding, and simultaneously local and global awareness, towards the alleviation of challenges facing our beautiful island community. With your help, we are looking forward to a magnificent Rotary Zanzibar and Fumba Town, Golf Day 2020. 

Rotary Club of Zanzibar, Stone Town

There are many challenges facing Zanzibari citizens, including poor access to education and health care. The people of Zanzibar remain hopeful of a better future, and through their own hard work do the best they can for their families and communities but they need help.  The Rotary Club of Zanzibar, Stone Town has the privilege of working alongside these amazing people to help them improve their daily lives and achieve their vision for their country.

The Rotary Club of Zanzibar, Stone Town was founded in 2005. Since then the Club has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of people in Zanzibar, focusing especially on health and education. Our members are constantly seeking effective, sustainable solutions for the many challenges faced by the community. We fundraise and facilitate our own projects, as well as support vital projects of local NGOS as well as overseas partners. Our achievements may seem small in the big picture of so much need, but for the people who benefit our achievements are huge.

We meet at 6 degrees South Restaurant in Stone Town at 5pm every Thursday.

Sea Cliff Resort & Spa

Sea Cliff Resort and Spa offers tranquility, peace and beauty, with accommodation, lush tropical scented gardens, sparkling infinity pools, a variety of cuisine and attentive and helpful staff. The lounges, restaurant, bars and recreation area offers panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.


Golf at Sea Cliff

The 9 hole golf course at Sea Cliff Resort and Spa is the first golf course to be built on Zanzibar. It has a challenging layout and some of the most picturesque greens in the world. The dedicated Sea Cliff Golf management team and ground staff welcomed the idea of a Rotary charity tournament and their tireless support of the event has most certainly helped to make it such a success.

Golfers have something really exciting to look forward to at Sea Cliff Resort – the new Peter Matkovich golf course is a first on the island of Zanzibar, and will provide a great golfing experience set in a fantastic Zanzibar island setting. The course meanders through tropical bush landscape with gigantic mango trees and palms, borders on a beautiful mangrove swamp, and even contains a stunning coastal low dunes landscape along the ocean on a couple of holes.

Sea Cliff is a nine hole course, but offers a lot more. There are nine greens, but with different tee locations players can have a great 18 hole golf experience. The variety of holes on the different nines – varying in par, distance and angle, will provide golfers with a fun island golfing experience. The course also boasts a driving range and short game practice facility. After their round, golfers can enjoy the sunset from the Clubhouse Verandah, situated on a private beach, soaking in views of the ocean.

The course has a par of 71, with holes varying in length – short to long par 3’s, a variety of par 4’s including a couple of driveable options (depending on wind direction), and then some fun par 5’s, which also vary between longer and shorter, depending on wind direction. As the course is set on the coast, wind will obviously have a great influence on the way the course plays every day, providing golfers with a different course in different wind conditions. The aim of the course was to provide a fun resort experience for players, as well as provide a player friendly course where new players can be introduced and exposed to the game – Zanzibar and Tanzania as a whole is not a country currently associated with great golfers and a variety of great golf courses, but the course at Sea Cliff provides players of all levels with a fun, challenging test, set in an environment which would be described by many as “paradise”. What better way to spend part of your visit – be it leisure or business on this stunning layout, enjoying the best the island has to offer, again, and again…
