Over the years, beautiful Indian Ocean island Mauritius has developed a reputation as a premier golfing destination, with the climate making the sport a year-round possibility. But the question is, “Is Mauritius the Best Place to Play Golf?”
“Golf is definitely a drawcard. Beachcomber Tours presents an amazing collection of four dedicated golf resorts that combine decades of hospitality expertise with true craftsmanship into designing experiences that appeal to players who appreciate both natural beauty and exciting challenges,” says Joanne Visagie, sales and marketing director of Beachcomber Tours.
Paradis Beachcomber has an 18-hole par-72 championship golf course considered to be one of the island’s best. It is also convenient for guests of nearby Dinarobin Beachcomber. At Shandrani Beachcomber, there’s a challenging nine-hole mashie course with a unique layout that is good practice for improving golfers’ short games. In the north and available to guests staying at Canonnier Beachcomber and Trou aux Biches Beachcomber is the island’s 18-hole Mont Choisy Le Golf.
World Leisure Holidays also offers a number of golf packages for guests and has partnered with three of the best golf courses on the island to offer keen golfers staying at Sun Resorts great golfing options.
Ile aux Cerfs has been given 4,9 stars (out of 5) by Golfadvisor.com. The course, in the south of the island, covers 38 hectares, with the holes snaking up and down the length of the island. Expansive white sand bunkers and water set off the natural backdrop of trees and vegetation perfectly. Water is a feature of the course.
Ahahita, a championship, 18-hole, par-72 golf course, is set in a magnificent location on the east coast of Mauritius. Designed by former World No.1 South African golfer, Ernie Els, the course appeals to golfers of all levels. There are five tee-off areas, six oceanfront holes and broad fairways with views over the surrounding mountains and lagoon. The course integrates elements of the landscape as strategic hazards. The spectacular final tee shot on the 18th hole is one of the most impressive in the world, according to Ernie Els.
Tamarina is an 18-hole, par-72 course on the west coast. The course, designed by Rodney Wright of Wright Golf Design, offers five tee-off areas and sweeping views over the west coast. It guarantees a fun round of golf for players of all levels.
