Mixed Pairs Tournament: 23rd September – 6th October 2018

Mauritius Mixed Pairs hosted by PGA professional Jacques Gous for 2018!

Mauritius Mixed Pairs 2018

I don’t think there is anything worse for us as humans, than to enter into something that we know nothing
about. Having a bit of insurance and information to know what to expect is always good and
comforting. So after reading this I think you will be sure to book a holiday to join us on the
Mauritius Mixed Pairs Tournament that I had the pleasure of hosting in it’s 19th year.

Here is my report from the 2018 tournament:

The trip began with a flight from the UK to Mauritius. After arriving at the resort the group were left to their own comforts until 6pm that evening when we all got together for an introduction from myself, a few drinks & our first meal together as a group. This was a great opportunity to meet other members of the group and catch up with old friends.

We visited three more restaurants throughout our stay which are all silver service with an á la carte option. The range of restaurants available kept our taste buds excited. The Blue Penny restaurant in particular was an amazing experience, located in the cellar of the resort you are surrounded by around 30,000 bottles of wine.

Onto the most important part of the trip… Golf.

We played five tournament rounds of golf that took place at the two resort courses; The Links & The Legend. Two amazing courses that are completely different from each other, challenging (in a good way) & surrounded by beauty. The legends course in particular always offers views of majestic deer. The quality of the golf and the resort combined with the friendliness of the staff (that are happy to help with anything) makes the Belle Mare Plage a perfect location for an event of this nature.

During tournament days I hosted golf clinics before the round. This is a chance for me to help the group with their game which I love doing. Being a PGA Professional I am there to call on anytime a group member is having trouble. The practice facilities at both The Links & The Legend courses are world class which allowed us to get the most out of these sessions.

There are so many options available to the group on non-tournament days. It is hard to convey just how stunning this beach resort is, it’s truly special and you cannot beat it for peace and tranquillity. It is simply bliss! For those in the group that fancied a bit more adventure other activities are available like tennis, water sports (water skiing & parasailing), bicycles to explore the island and of course if you are up for another round, the golf course is always there.

One special trip I arranged for those in the group was the catamaran with food and drink included. This gave the group a chance to do some snorkelling and visit the waterfalls, trust me it’s so beautiful. Not only did we then sail around the island of Ile aux Cerfs but had an hour and a half to explore the beautiful setting before leisurely sailing back to the rest.

We enjoyed two more days out of the resort playing at two special courses. One is the world-famous island course of Ile aux Cerfs & the other is the host of the Mauritius Open, Anahita, an Ernie Els design which many of those WHO travelled rated as their number one. These two courses were optional to play and are both about 20 minutes drive from the resort, but well worth a visit and I promise you would not regret joining me. I just love them both as they are so unique. Have you ever heard of going to a golf course on a boat? A crazy experience with magical views.

When all is said and done, we finished off our trip with having the last meal together and this is always a special occasion in a special location. I hope this gives you a little insight into what we do on our tournaments & escorted tours and wish to see some old and new faces in 2019!

Belle Mare Plage The Legend

Belle Mare Plage The Legend
*Please note: From Feb 2019 golfers will be charged approx. £15 for 18 holes and this will be payable at the golf courses. Those staying on All-Inclusive at Constance Belle Mare Plage receive free green fees & buggies 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: 4th

A 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: 18th

Having 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.

Par: 71, Holes: 18, 5,942m

Belle Mare Plage The Links

Belle Mare Plage The Links
*Please note: From Feb 2019 golfers will be charged approx. £15 for 18 holes and this will be payable at the golf courses. Those staying on All-Inclusive at Constance Belle Mare Plage receive free green fees & buggies Our recommended hotels to stay and play are the Constance Belle Mare Plage & The C Palmar by Constance. 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.

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: 10th

What 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: 18th

A 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!
