The Indian Ocean's Emerging Golf Destination

Mauritius -

Mauritius has long been known for its pristine beaches, stunning scenery, vibrant culture and food fusion; but the unique golf scene on the island is not to be overlooked. Thanks to Mauritius’ microclimate zones, lush landscapes and turquoise oceans, the island has developed breathtaking golf courses that each have their own unique surroundings.

Across the island, there are a number of spectacular golf courses - and no two courses are the same. Rugged mountain peaks and crystal clear lagoons are just some of the impressive views that surround the scenic courses, designed by golfing greats, in Mauritius.

As well as offering an unbeatable golfing experience for both amateur and professional golfers, Mauritius plays host to a variety of prestigious tournaments, including the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open every December.

The island is also home to the Heritage Golf Club, which has been awarded the Indian Ocean’s best golf club at the World Golf Awards, six times over. In September 2021, the club is also opening a new course designed by Peter Matkovich and Louis Oosthuizen - taking Mauritius’ golf course total to 11.

LAGTO also crowned Ile aux Cerfs as the "Best Golfing Experience" in the Indian Ocean in 2019, whilst Anahita Resort and Spa being were awarded the Best Hotel Experience for Golfers.

For people who do not want to stay in a golf resort, there are alternative hotels and resorts who do not have their own courses that work in partnership with neighbouring greens, offering guests services such as complimentary transfers, green fees and taster-classes at nearby courses.

Those who offer such services include Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Hilton Mauritius Resort & Spa and Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa.
