MAURITIUS … “AN INDIAN OCEAN GOLFING PARADISE”!
In the 19th Century, under British rule, Mauritius became the third country in the world to be introduced to golf. Since that time, Mauritius has been evolving as one of the best golfing destinations in the world.
Mauritius hosts nine 18-hole golf courses and five 9-hole golf courses, each of which provides a unique golfing experience to the visitor. With its natural beauty, good climate and unique cultural blend, Mauritius is an island with so much to offer … great golf is one of them!
In 2008, the island was awarded the title of Golf Destination of the Year – Africa, the Indian Ocean and the Gulf States – by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO). Here, the visiting golfer has the chance to practise their favourite sport in optimal conditions on spectacular golf courses, located on beautiful sites with the Indian Ocean as a backdrop.
Many of the golf courses have been designed by prestigious players such as Bernhard Langer, Ernie Els, Gary Player, Rodney Wright and Hugh Baiocchi. The Legends & Links courses of the Constance Belle Mare Plage resort plays host annually to the European Senior tour event, the MCB Tour Championship during 12- 14 December.
This year, Colin Montgomerie will lead an all-star field of professional golfing “seniors”, including
Ian Woosnam and David Frost. What a great golfing event to build a Mauritius holiday around.
Air Mauritius flies 3 times a week from Australia to Mauritius using modern Airbus A320 aircraft with two class configurations. Departing Perth at lunch time and arriving at your Mauritian resort in time for dinner is a great way to start your Mauritian golfing experience.
