There are many great holes to remember from a golf holiday in Mauritius, but the following summary will whet the appetite.
1. Legends par 3, 17th over the estuary and mangrove swamps is a real do or die shot and a stunning spot.
2. The greens of Le Paradis at holes 12 and 16, which both lie on opposite sides of the lagoon are dramatic and scenic. The second hotel into 16 on Paradis is so exciting! A classic risk and reward short par 5.
3. The par 3 holes at The Els Course Anahita on notably the longer 8th and the shorter 17th are exceptionally beautiful and very challenging. Whilst the 4th hole, a roller coaster par 5 called Ocean Drive, with a green overlooking the sea and raised is stunning,
4. The picturesque Ile Aux Cerfs climaxes at the 11th green, the hole is a long dog leg right, with the ocean running down the left at the corner of the tee shot. An exposed high green overlooking ocean and 5. mountains. Coupled with the exciting tee shot at 12 and its green again right beside the sea.
5. The Heritage course, which is many people's favourite in Mauritius, no hole can beat the beauty of the tee shots at 6 and 7, featuring high tees,with lush valleys below and ocean backdrops, with testing second shots to precarious greens.
6. At Avalon, the new Matkovitch course, the short par 4 risk and reward hole from a very high tee into a blind valley and green, may be the highlight of a very interesting and challenging design.
7. Similarly, at Matkovitch's new course called Mont Choisy at Grande Baie, the par 3 holes at 8 and 15 excel, super holes, where from high tees you are playing into greens where only the perfect shot will reward. The 8th is like a links hole, with mounding on both sides of the hole played into a natural hollow, whilst the 15th is surrounded by desert like sand and water all in front.
8. Finally, the Links at Belle Mare has a superb 17th hole par 4 with trouble awaiting on both sides as the hole turns through think vegetation and trees up hill to a tough green.
Avalon Golf Course is already open down near the town of Bois Cheri and Elegant Golf clients staying at Heritage Le Telfair can play it on the gourmet bliss package. The course is maturing all the time, set on high land, the views are exceptional and it is technically a brilliant and varied layout. If you like Heritage Golf Club you will love Avalon, as it is the same designer.
The Constance Hotel group are investing in a new design between the Links course and Le Prince Maurice. This will be their long awaited third course and European Properties are already designing the layout for Constance. The course will be ready for November 2018. The design will take advantage of the same sort or terrain as the excellent Links course.
Mont Choisy, which is also a Matkovitch design, is situated in the north west of the island just below the famous seaside resort of Grande Baie. The course will be an absolute gem, we have seen the construction and design already in October 2016. Set in the grounds of an old chateau the design will be a clever combination of stadium, links and a bit of desert thrown in. We can already see some finished holes and they are mouth watering.
Finally, the Heritage Hotel group are investing in a second course on the higher land to the east of the existing design. The views of the ocean will be even more special and it will be undoubtedly exciting undulating terrain. The design will be a combination of Louis Oosthuizen and Peter Matkovitch, who also created the amazing first Heritage course. This is on line for November 2018.
