The European Senior Golf Tour is hotting up as Colin Montgomerie wins his second Major of the season at the US Senior Open Championship.
Will Colin Montogmerie be gracing the Legend this December?
The win puts Montogmerie at the head of the order of merit and in a good position to play for the MCB Tour Championship in Mauritius this December.
The Tour Championship will be held at Constance Belle Mare Plage from December 12–14. A recent agreement between the Senior Tour, Constance and sponsor Mauritius Commercial Bank guaranteed that the MCB Championship will be hosted by Constance Belle Mare Plage until at least 2017.
Montgomerie is no stranger to the Legend course at Belle Mare Plage having battled last year’s MCB Champion Paul Wesselingh on the course in the final round of the championship last year.
Former Ryder Cup Captain, Montgomerie won the US Senior Open in Oklahoma following a dramatic play-off against Gene Sauers.

Chef Michael’s visit to Verbier next month will be the centrepiece of a gastronomic week celebrating Spices and Flavours of the World at the Chalet d’Adrien from 7-10 August.
He will work alongside Michelin-starred chef Mirto Marchesi to create a series of menus built around the spices and herbs of Indian Ocean cuisine.
Restaurants on tour are big news this summer, and Constance Le Prince Maurice is joining the likes of The Fat Duck, Noma and El Celler de Can Roca in taking its renowned cuisine to new countries.

Constance CEO, Jean-Jacques Vallet, congratulated the resort architect Jean Marc Eynaud and said, ‘It is in line with our business concept of offering our guests elegant properties located in extraordinary sites and unique in their natural beauty. Properties that are sensitive to their surroundings, using designs in wood, stone and marble to blend smoothly with the local environment.’
Mauritian architect Jean Marc Eynaud, who also designed Constance Le Prince Maurice, Constance Lémuria and Constance Belle Mare Plage, specialises in tropical contemporary architecture which works in harmony with its environment.
This year’s European Senior Tour will once again be decided on the greens and fairways of the Legend golf course at Constance Belle Mare Plage in December.
The Legend, home of the MCB Tour Championship

This year’s event, to be held on 8-14 December, is expected to be just as exciting with Colin Montgomerie and Tom Watson currently topping the Order of Merit.

Photographer Bamba Sourang, who has taken so many iconic pictures of Constance hotels over the years, is launching his own art exhibition this month.
Bamba Sourang launches new art exhibition in Mauritius
The exhibition at the Mauritius Institute Building in the capital Port Louis, will run from 20-26 June 2014.
A launch party celebrating the international artist will be hosted by Constance Hotels & Resorts on 19 June.
Bamba has enjoyed a special relationship with Constance since 2000 when he visited our hotels and resorts across Mauritius, Maldives, Seychelles and Madagascar capturing a series of beautiful photographs.
Bamba’s artistic work is a combination of photography and modern art based on his travels around the world. His aim is to battle against what he sees as a growing visual indifference in modern societies.
Born in Senegal and living in France, Bamba was selected last year as one of only 45 artists worldwide to launch the new phase of the Google open Gallery designed to create an international network of artists.
