Welshman Mark Mouland, the first player to win back-to-back Mauritius Golf Open titles, has earned himself a regular place on the lucrative USPGA Champions Tour next year.

Mouland has been a regular visitor to Constance Belle Mare Plage for many years and followed his first win in 2002 by successfully defending his title 12 months later.

The 51-year-old former European Tour player – who has often indulged in his passion for big-game fishing while on the island – joined the senior ranks last year and scored his maiden title success, in the Portuguese Senior Open, a few weeks before flying out from England for the inaugural MCB Tour Championship.

This year Mouland made a limited number of appearances on the Champions Tour after winning a conditional card at the 2011 National Qualifying Tournament. Vut an outstanding performance in this year’s gruelling event in Florida earned Mouland third place with only the top-five finishers being guaranteed full playing rights for 2013.

Of the other MCB Tour Championship entries this year, Sweden’s Anders Forsbrand gained conditional exemption for next season while Australian Peter Fowler and Englishman Barry Lane finished high enough in the final placings to give themselves opportunities of securing a limited number of appearances.

Island romance of Mauritius

Its stunning palm-lined white sand beaches and turquoise seas set against a dramatic mountain backdrop make it the perfect destination for a romantic Indian Ocean getaway.

That’s why at Constance Belle Mare Plage and Constance Le Prince Maurice we’ve woven romance into the very heart of what we offer.

We have staff who are attentive but discreet, restaurants which make the most of our breathtaking location, secluded areas for relaxation around the resort and accommodation built for seduction.

Constance Le Prince Maurice

The grown-up elegance of Le Prince Maurice sets the mood for quiet romance, designed to offer guest peace and seclusion. From it’s luxurious accommodation to its quiet beaches and infinity pool, there’s plenty to enthral here.

The resort also boasts one of the most romantic restaurants in the world, Le Barachois, serving freshly caught seafood. The romance begins as you wind your way through mangrove trees down a lantern-lit wooden gangplank to reach a restaurant which floats on the moonlit lagoon.

Even the pampering luxury of the Spa de Constance need not separate you from your loved one. Skincare specialist Sisley offers a special treatment for couples enticingly called ‘In the mood for love’.
