Two 18-hole championship golf courses set in an idyllic island location is as close to holiday paradise as most golfers can imagine.
Here are our top 5 reasons to play golf in Mauritius.
1. The courses
Situated at Constance Belle Mare Plage, the 18-hole, par 72 Legend Golf Course was designed by South African golf champion Hugh Baiocchi. It’s built to USPGA specifications using tif dwarf grasses.
David Frost, former MCB Open Champion, describes the course, ‘ At the Legend you can ensure a velvet-soft playing surface. The course has some great, challenging tee shots and under pressure you need to hit the fairways. From there it is target golf to the pins as well.’
Also located at Belle Mare Plage is the 18-hole Links Golf Course, par 71. Designed by award-winning course designer Rodney Wright and professional golfer and commentator Peter Allis, the Links includes a practice fairway to help you warm up before your game.
2. The Golf Academy
At our professionally run Marc Farry Golf Academy, you have the opportunity to improve your game significantly during your golf holiday with Constance. We provide individual or group classes with our resident professionals at both courses.
Whatever your level the Marc Farry Academy Teaching Method will help you improve your grip, posture, alignment and ball position. We even provide lessons for kids so you can start to train the next generation of champions.
3. Après golf spa
Every golfer knows there’s more to golf than getting out there and hitting a ball which is why Spa de Constance offers a range of treatments and exercise programmes designed to loosen tensed muscles and soothe tired minds.
The popular golfer’s tonic offers a 45 minute stimulating massage which aids in relaxing and preparing muscles, preventing injuries, improving suppleness and reducing the risk of inflammation before and after the golfing activities.
Golf in Mauritius is not just about challenging fairways and perfectly manicured greens, it’s about connecting with the stunning tropical environment. From the breathtaking mountain scenery and beauty of the Indian Ocean to spotting some of the island inhabitants such as local deer and Mauritius Fody, visiting Mauritius is a treat for all the senses.
5. Luxury hotels
Whether you choose Constance Belle Mare Plage set on a beautiful 2 kilometre white sandy beach or the secluded elegance of Constance Le Prince Maurice you’ll be sure of complete indulgence when you come off the green. Fine dining, beautiful beaches and luxury accommodation complete the picture of playing golf in paradise.
