Golf Course Mauritius

The island of Mauritius is an Indian Ocean paradise and attracts thousands of tourists every year with its beautiful natural scenery, world-class seaside activities and French/Chinese/Indian culinary delights. Mauritius is also a golfers' haven and boasts many superb golf courses.

All Mauritian golf courses have as their backdrop the brilliant blue of the equatorial sky, the wondrous white of mountains of fluffy clouds and the gorgeous green of the palm fronds that sway slowly in the refreshing breeze.

The 18 holes at the Le Touessrok golf course - part of the five-star Le Touessrok Hotel and Resort complex [www.letouessrokresort.com] - also have as their backdrop the intriguing indigo of the Indian Ocean. Le Touessrok also has the honor of being the longest course on the island, and, while the course itself is achingly beautiful, it does have a reputation for being hard for the higher handicappers to handle

The gorgeous course located at the Paradis Hotel is known to the locals as 'green on ocean' and boasts no less than 5 water hazards. Paradis lies next to the magnificent Le Morne Mountain, and the course has two golf pros in attendance who offer lessons to first-time golfers. Those who choose to stay at the Paradis Hotel also have access to two further championship courses: Tamarina Estate [http://www.tamarina.mu/] and Golf du Château.

The isle's only stand-alone course is Gymkhana Suffolk Close in Vacoas, and visitors should play this course just for its historic value alone: it's the southern hemisphere's oldest course and was originally built by the British Army.

Further courses that the avid golfer should put on his 'must-play' list include the 9-hole and 33-par Saint-Géran - designed by none other than South African golfing great Gary Player in 1970 - and the Anahita [http://www.anahita.mu/en/golf/ernie_els_design.aspx] with its deep bunkers and stunning finishing hole. This course is the 2008 brain-child of Ernie Else, another South African golfing phenomenon.

For the golfing enthusiast, the only thing better than playing a round on one of the Mauritian championship courses is enjoying a protracted golfing holiday on the island. Numerous golfing packages are available, and a bit of research will allow any golfer to find the one that suits him best.

Let the fisherman enjoy their fish and the hikers their hiking; the Mauritian golfing experience is not something that the avid golfer will forget in a hurry.
