In-keeping with Mauritius’ tradition of professionally-designed golf courses, this offering was designed by South African golf legend Ernie Els. A challenging 18-hole course located in the south-east of the island, golfers can be sure of beautiful views of the ocean lagoon and the offshore Île aux Cerfs during their round. Located at the Anahita resort, the golf course offers numerous extra facilities to guests of the hotel, while non-guests may play on request.
A rarity for Mauritius golf courses, the Avalon Golf Estate is located in-land, not on the coast. That does not mean that there is not beauty here; far from it, the rolling green fairways and the beautiful, lush surroundings make this as spectacular a course as any on the island. It also incorporates the beautiful flora of the south of the island to blend into its surroundings and provide a uniquely-unforgettable golfing experience.
The older of the two 18-hole championship courses at this resort, the Legend Golf Course was opened way back in 1994. With more water traps than its sister course, the course may seem daunting, but it offers spectacular views and excellent facilities to anyone who decided to give it a go.
The Links golf course is one of two courses at the beautiful Constance Belle Mare resort. Having opened in 2002, it is the newer of the resort’s two courses, and is a par 71 championship course. With a mixture of water traps, lush fairways, and beautiful views, it is everything you’d want out of a tropical Indian Ocean golf course.
One of the oldest golf courses in the world, and almost certainly the oldest in the southern hemisphere, the Gymkhana Club Mauritius was set up in 1844 by members of the British Navy, thus the course is steeped in tradition. Its age also means that it is shorted than some of the other, more modern courses in the country, and it is also more affordable than some of the more luxurious options in Mauritius.
The Heritage Golf Course is located in the south-west of Mauritius, near to the coast.

The popular beach destination of the Île aux Cerfs is also home to a fantastic golf course, designed by German professional Bernhard Langer.

Visitors must take a boat to the island, but there are numerous options available.

Due to open at the end of 2017, Le Golf Mont Choisy will be part of a major development project in Mont Choisy in Mauritius. As it is not yet completed at time of writing, the details of the course are as of yet unknown.
Designed by legend Gary Player, the 9-hole, par-33 course at the One and Only Saint-Géran Resort is well worth a try for anyone in the area.
