Mauritius: A Millionaire’s Golf Paradise
A tiny tropical island in the middle of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is an absolute paradise for golfers. If you want millionaire’s golf, you’ve come to the right place.
Go Golfing has launched an exclusive Mauritius golf tour starting 11 March 2016 for 8 nights and 4 rounds of golf. This luxury golf holiday in the Indian Ocean will see you play 18 hole golf courses with exceptional panoramas. It features Bernard Langer-designed Iles Aux Cerfs Golf Course – set on its own island – as well as Anahita and the impressive Belle Mare Plage two championship courses.
Ile aux Cerfs Golf Course
A golf course on an island is not that unusual. But a golf course that claims its own island – all to itself – is quite unique. And that is exactly what the Ile Aux Cerfs Golf Course (formerly named Le Touessrok) offers.
The 6,476 metre, par 72 course was designed by two-time US Masters champion and Ryder Cup winning captain Bernhard Langer, who wanted to create a “golfing experience that truly arouses all the senses. From the amazing natural setting to the challenges presented by the course, I want it to be a game to remember for all who play.”
You’ll reach this stunningly beautiful golf course by water. Almost half of the holes run alongside the turquoise blue waters and white sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean. The remaining holes play over and around tidal bays filled with mangroves and offer spectacular view of the nearby ‘Cat and Mouse’ mountain.
This African island will seduce you with its colonial charm – from its industries, architecture and people. You’ll be lured by the relaxed charm of its warm and welcoming people. Add to this the mix of Chinese, Indian, French and African cuisine, the energising beat of the séga music and the infectious party spirit of the locals, and you’ll soon understand why Mauritius is so many’s people’s idea of paradise on earth.
In 1844, under British rule, Mauritius became the third country in the world to be introduced to golf. The island was also awarded the title of Golf Destination of the Year – Africa, the Indian Ocean and the Gulf States – by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) in 2008.
