Java Deer at the Legend golf course, Constance Belle Mare Plage

Herds of Java Deer (Cervus timorensis rusa) are found in only a few places on earth. One of these is on the Legend golf course at Constance Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius.

Java Deer roam at the Legend golf course

Playing golf on this beautiful course, you’re likely to see some of the 120 Java Deer that roam the wooded areas. If you’re playing an 8 hole round, you’re most likely to see them at holes 2 and 3.

And if you’re playing the full course, they may stand watching your swing between holes 13 and 18.

Come sundown, the deer like to wander to the lake near the Club House. If you’re eating dinner at our Deer Hunter restaurant, you may see them drinking from the lake and playing by the water.

It’s a beautiful sight to see these elegant creatures roaming the golf course in the last sunlight of the day.

Have you seen the deer at the Legend golf course?

If you have photos of the deer at the Legend, we’d love to see them. You can post them to our Facebook page or tweet them @constancehotels.

More and more children are trying the game while on holiday with us. Here’s why kids and golf are a perfect match.

1. Much has been written on how playing sport is good for children – it develops confidence and self-awareness, as well as respect for others.

2. Playing golf gives children the chance to spend time in beautiful natural landscapes, soaking up the fresh air and sunshine.

3. Children love to be active, and playing golf is a great way to learn how to exercise while having fun.

4. Kids love hanging out with other kids, and playing golf together is a great way to make friends.

5. Sport helps kids learn how to manage their emotions. Everyone has good and bad days on the golf course. The game teaches children to stay calm and focused on one thing at a time.

6. Golf teaches a certain etiquette – there are no referees in golf, golfers negotiate among themselves and play to the rules.

7. Holidays spent together give families many treasured moments they cherish forever. Children love sharing experiences with adults, and playing golf together is a great way to do this.
