Golf courses in Mauritius
Our View…“The course itself is a brilliant test of golf as you have to choose your club selection wisely from the tee box as most of the fairways can be a tight and not a big lot of room for error! Also to add to the challenge is “water” on nearly every hole to give it that full championship feel rather than just a holiday golf course that people may think it might be. It’s a fantastic walking course and very scenic with herds of deer quietly wandering the course.” Stuart Thompson – Chaka Travel Mauritius Golf Specialist
Stuart’s favourite hole: 4thA fantastic par 5 with a tee shot that you have to work the ball from right to left as you have water on the right and left for the length of the hole, making the first 2 shots a challenge.
Mark’s favourite hole: 18thHaving played the iconic 17th you end your round on the superb par 5 18th. Water to the right off the tee box means driving to the left of the fairway and having to lay up, a more aggressive line allows the bigger hitters to attack a larger very well protected green. Belle Mare Plage The Legend Mauritius Belle Mare Plage The Legend Mauritius
The two championship golf courses, The Legend & The Links are of international standard. Each 18 holes is a real challenge for professional and amateurs alike, recognised by the PGA and various other federations, these courses were conceived to annually host a number of international competitions including the Mauritius Open.
Opened in 2002, The Links is Constance Belle Mare Plage’s second championship golf course within the resort.
Designed by Rodney Wright and Peter Allis, this challenging 18 hole golf course is equipped with a practice fairway built according to USPGA specifications, its own Golf Academy with professional and qualified golf instructors with coaching sessions available both individually and in a group, and free green fees for guest staying in Constance hotels.
Our View…“A friendlier course well I use the word “lightly” as doesn’t have the same amount of water in play but can be tricky and especially on the back 9! The course again is very well set up with more room for error of the tee boxes and which is great for the higher handicapped golfers. Also another difference is I find the greens can be very tricky and also makes you think of every approach shot from the fairways. It again is a lovely course maybe not as scenic as the legends and also not as flat! So always advisable to get a buggy.” Stuart Thompson – Chaka Travel Mauritius Golf Specialist.
Stuart’s favourite hole: 10thWhat a way to start the back 9! Tee off from an elevated box with out of bounds on the right and trees on the left it is very tricky drive and also on your second shot you have to content with the lake coming in from the left towards a very tight green!
Mark’s favourite hole: 18thA challenging par 4 that can quickly turn a close game on its head, I speak from experience having had to pay for drinks after putting one in the water. Not a long par 4 but definitely a treacherous one if the winds blowing!
Heritage 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Matkovich & Hayes one of the leading golf course landscapers and designers in South Africa. The course they have designed has some unique and challenging features including two rivers, Citronniers and St Martin, that run through it, as well as the Chateau de Bel Ombre with its beautiful French gardens. Golfers enjoy a magnificent view of both the breathtaking colours of the ocean and the mountains.
The course, which adjoins the Heritage Awali Hotel, gives residents access to the course via golf cart through a private pathway. Having taken cognisance of your tee off time, golf carts are brought to the porte-cochere for added convenience. Guest’s golf clubs are carefully polished and safely stored in individual lockers at the resort, ready for another day on the greens. As well as a welcoming clubhouse where missed birdies and eagles can be debated over a favourite tipple, golfers have access to a pro shop, golf carts for hire, and if you’ve always wanted to improve on that handicap, there’s expert tuition from a resident Golf Pro. Unlimited green fees on Heritage Golf Club included.
