Opened in 1994 Constance Belle Mare Plage’s first championship golf course set along one of the most beautiful beaches in Mauritius Designed by South African champion Hugh Baiocchi 18 hole championship golf course laid in the heart of an indigenous forest. The course was built according to USPGA specifications with Tif Dwarf greens.
Teeing off at the par three 17th hole is a feast for the eyes and a test for the nerves. You are playing across the lagoon, but we have found that it is actually not a difficult as the green is fairly large, the sting in the tail is that the green is also tricky and a par score can be hard to achieve if you end up a long way from the hole. The course has a lot of water and thick scrub so take plenty of balls but having played it on many occasions we love this course. This is a walking course and buggies are optional and cost approx. £20 per person. Caddies are also available and cost around £3 to £5 for 18-holes.
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.
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!

“Currently ranked the worlds 44th best golf course, what else could be left to say. Yas Links is simply one of the most spectacular courses you can play, but take a few balls with you!”
“Being the most traditional golf club in Abu Dhabi, a feature that continues as you step out onto the course itself. With most holes flanked by rugged sand dunes, fairways scattered with put hidden bunkers and huge undulating greens, you would almost think you’re in Scotland if it weren’t for the glorious sunshine.”

“As soon you drive through the entrance you’re greeted by wild gazelles and they’re also a constant feature all over the golf course. The course itself is a really good test of golf, it’s no pitch and putt resort course! You’ll need your A game to take the money round here.”
