As the third country in the world to hold a golf match, Mauritius has become a first-class golfing destination in recent years. Both Alize Resorts (Casuarina Resort and Spa and Le Cardinal Exclusive Resort) are affiliate hotels of the new Mont Choisy Le Golf course, the only 18-hole golf course in the north of Mauritius. Guests preferential rates on golf rounds, lessons and equipment rental.
Mauritius has no less than eight high-quality 18-hole championship golf courses and three nine-hole courses to accommodate all players. The majority of courses in Mauritius are linked to luxury resorts, with many offering golfing packages or unlimited green fees for hotel residents. For non-residents, fees range from £50-150, including the use of a golf cart.
With world class courses around the island, it is no wonder that the island plays host to the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open. The AfrAsia Mauritius Open is the first ever tri-sanctioned tournament endorsed by European and Asian Tours.
Set in the breathtaking landscape of Domaine de Bel Ombre, the Heritage Golf Club has one of the island’s most beautiful courses and boasts the world’s only 5-star, all-inclusive golf resort, the Heritage Awali Golf and Spa. Meanwhile, on the west coast, the Tamarina Golf, Spa and Beach Resort is the island’s only residential golf estate.
Mauritius also has some excellent academies for adults and children, such as the Beachcomber Paradis Hotel and Golf Club and the Four Seasons Resort at Anahita. Heritage’s The Academy offers courses led by certified PGA professionals guaranteed to improve your swing.
Guests of Maritim Crystals Beach Hotel Mauritius and Maritim Resort and Spa Mauritius benefit from free green fees at the unique nine-hole Maritim Golf Course, which was designed by the renowned Australian professional golfer, Graham Marsh.
Located along the Turtle Bay within an estate of 25 hectares with countless palm trees and tropical flowers, the golf course gives guests an excellent opportunity to practise at various skill levels. Each hole can be played from two different tees. Lessons for all levels as well as night golf sessions are available.
Maritim Resort and Spa Mauritius offers an urban golf course for amateur players. Also known as street golf or cross golf it involves playing on a building site or even the streets with a special and very light ball placed on a mat. Guests hit the ball throughout the resort’s exceptional 25ha estate, starting near the spa and ending spectacularly at the hotel’s fine dining restaurant, Château Mon Désir.
