Play in paradise: Golf in Mauritius

Mauritius is the home of beautiful golf courses from the likes of Ernie Els and Bernhard Langer complementing the luxury resorts and idyllic beaches of this Indian Ocean paradise.

Year-round sunshine makes Mauritius a great golfing destination, particularly ideal for a golf vacation during winter with an average temperature of 25°C in February. So, let’s take a quick tour…

Heritage Golf Club

Mauritius GC

Heritage Golf Club, part of the the five-star Heritage Resorts & Golf, features the 18-hole championship course La Reserve Golf Links designed by Peter Matkovich and 2010 Open champion Louis Oosthuizen. The course is the host venue for the DP World Tour’s AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open.

It was the Indian Ocean’s first contemporary links course when it opened in 2023, set in the beautiful south-west region. Inspired by the great seaside links of Ireland and Scotland, there’s elevated tees, raised greens and spectacular views over Mauritius’ tropical bays.

Matkovich also designed the club’s Le Château Golf Course, a superb 18-hole championship course set in the lush grounds of the elegant 19th century chateau from where it gets its name. The views of the Indian Ocean are stunning.

Four Seasons Golf Club at Anahita

The five-star Anahita Resort is home to two 18-hole golf courses, the Ernie Els-designed Anahita and Bernhard Langer’s Ile aux Cerfs. Anahita is a championship course with six stunning oceanfront holes culminating in a final tee shot that is among the most spectacular in the world.

Ile aux Cerfs is another championship course which offers superb views of the surrounding Indian Ocean. It’s set on its very own island, accessible via a quick boat transfer – a paradise pleasure in itself. Langer has created a testing masterpiece but it’s incredibly scenic, snaking through a coral island refuge with volcanic rock formations, lakes and tropical plantations.
