If you are a golfer looking for the perfect place to tee-up and swing then Mauritius has some serious treats in store for you. Here are some of the courses that you can expect to explore on your arrival in paradise.
Constance Belle Mare Plage The Legend
‘The Legend’, designed by South African champion, Hugh Baiocchi, is the crowning achievement of Constance Belle Mare Plage. Each hole has its own distinctive characteristics, with many a surprise in store. Superb fairways are laid-out in the heart of an indigenous forest, culminating in perfect greens built to USPGA specifications. In an effort to provide the quintessential golfing location, all 18 greens were rebuilt using Tif Dwarf grasses to ensure a perfect surface. Time has also been taken to enhance the natural beauty of the site. Teeing off from the 17th hole (par 3) is a feast for the eyes and a test for the nerves.
The second Belle Mare Plage Championship Golf Course, designed by Rodney Wright and Peter Allis opened in November 2002. This 18-hole Links course was conceived as a result of the success and demands encountered by Hotels Constance’s first course, ‘The Legend’. Sitting beneath the clubhouse which faces the setting sun, the course measures 5,942 m and is a Par 71. Equipped with a practice fairway, this 18-hole course is set in a location which seems to have been naturally created for the purpose of an exciting days golfing.
Golf du Château
Attached to two hotels, the Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort and the Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort, the magnificent 18- hole “Golf du Château” golf course covers 100 hectares and is the masterpiece of architect Peter Matkovitch, of Peter Matkovich and Hayes, the world renowned South African architectural practice.
Situated between the mountains and the sea in an undulating landscape interspersed with lakes, streams and tropical trees, this Par 72 championship course is both technically challenging and varied. The architects have elegantly integrated the two water courses that cross Golf du Château creating small lakes which enhance the demands made on technique, yet fully respecting the harmony and tranquillity of the surroundings. They have also integrated the magnificent Château of Bel Ombre and its gardens into the design of the golf course.
“Golf du Château” consists of: two 9-hole courses.9 hole outside course 3,210m, 9 hole inside course is 3,297m, 3 by 3 vary from 140m to 200m, 4 by 4 from 320m to 430m, 4 by 5 from 490m to 520m.

The use of the course is complimentary to One&Only guests and for a nominal fee expert tuition is provided by the Academy’s Resident Pro. This 9-hole gem is unique to Mauritius as Le Saint Géran is the only course employing local grass on the fairways and greens. The local grass not only accentuates the exotic feel of the place but it also creates a challenge as it is thick and spongy, giving the ball some serious friction to overcome. Armies of coconut and palm trees frame the course with the shimmering azure of the Indian Ocean offering an eye-catching backdrop. There are a number of natural waterways strategically placed around the course creating a picturesque challenge for pros and beginners alike. Guests can also play 18 holes on Le Saint Géran with different departures.
This 18-hole Championship Golf Course was designed by international design company Wright Golf Design, headed by Rodney Wright himself. Tamarina has already received much acclaim for its uniquely pleasant and rewarding golfing experience. There are 5 different teeing options on every hole, offering possibilities for all handicaps. From the Professional tees the course measures 6886 metres making Tamarina a true championship test. Tamarina stretches alongside and crosses the Rempart River which plays a spectacular part in many holes, where you will be challenged to fly or swim. Many of the holes have been specially designed to give scenic views of Mount Rempart and the surrounding mountain ranges.
The Mauritius Gymkhana Club
The Mauritius Gymkhana Club is the oldest golf course in the southern Hemisphere and the fourth oldest golf course in the world (1844).

Centrally located in the district of Plaines Wilhems and easily accessible the Mauritius Gymkhana Club offers an ideal setting for a round of golf. The climate is pleasant all year round except for the winter months when it is a bit wet. The golf course is a 5025 metre, 18-hole, Par 68 with challenging narrow fairways.

The course, designed by Bernard Langer, covers 38 hectares and is the second longest in Mauritius, with holes snaking up and down the length of the island. All 18 holes have views of the ocean – some with glimpses across clearings through the trees; others by coming close to the shore. Facilities such as the Club House, restaurant, on-course refreshments, caddies, golf carts, locker rooms, bag storage clubs and shoe rental are available. And for those who feel their game might need some fine-tuning, Le Touessrok Golf Academy and practice area offers appropriate courses.
Paradis Golf Club Paradis
This ranks among the most spectacular on the island. The 18-hole Par 72 stretches to the foot of Le Morne Mountain and curls back along the edge of a peaceful lagoon. The greens are planted with Seashore Paspalum, an ideal turf for the tropics. The last 9 holes spread along the coastline and 5 water obstacles offer a tranquil challenge to all.
Shandrani features a 768-metre golf course, which runs along the banks of the lagoon, ensconced by a beautiful 50-acre tropical garden. With a “tee-off” located 100 metres away from the beach, this course is both stimulating and fun. The difficulty resides in its small size, which best suits calculated and accurate swings. Perfect for beginners or those who wish to improve their short game.
