Island Golf Holidays are the specialists to Mauritius, the idyllic golfer’s venue in the Indian Ocean, where the golf season is year round, with perhaps the exception of one month – July! The summer hot season starts in November and lasts through to Easter, but many golfers go when it is a little less hot and travel from April to June and also from September through to the end of October, when the prices are much less expensive.
Mauritius Golf Holidays are simply the best value long haul vacations available, mainly because the resorts all include free golf in the nightly room rates, so this is very different to venues in the Caribbean, Middle East and the Far East, where this is definitely not the case. The golf courses in Mauritius are all breathtaking, with ocean views and spectacular mountain scenery and in the case of Le Paradis a wonderful lagoon!
The top 3 courses are the Heritage Golf Club at Bel Ombre, which is offered free for residents of Heritage Awali and Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort. The magnificent Els Course at Four Seasons Resort at Anahita, where there are also the luxurious Anahita Golf & Spa Resort villas and townhouses, where you can play both Ile Aux Cerfs and the Els Course complimentary! Then it really is a toss up between Ile aux Cerfs, Tamarina on the west coast and the Links at Belle Mare Plage.
The most scenic course in the view of Island Golf Holidays is Le Paradis, sandwiched between Le Morne Mountain, the Lagoon and the Ocean, tucked away in the deep south-west corner of the island. The most difficult for scoring well is the Legends at Belle Mare Plage, offered free for Constance Prince Maurice and Constance Belle Mare Plage clients, this is because the course has so much water it really is a tough challenge to stay dry for 18 holes!
There are two new kids on the block in Mauritius, both designed by Peter Matkovitch – the superb hillside course at Avalon near Bel Ombre and the brand new Mont Choisy in the stunning north-west of the Island offered free for residents of the Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Resort. The north-west is notably the best region of Mauritius for all round great weather, even in July and August and it is a long way from the South-East, where the airport is and where the Trade Winds hit the Island!
A golf holiday in Mauritius is all about enjoying amazing golf courses, dining in some exquisite restaurants enjoying the Mauritian flair for cuisine, blending Creole, Chinese, African, Asian and French flavours!
