They are affordable and available for all, regardless of where tourists decide to stay. Find out about the excellent courses in this Indian Ocean paradise by reading on.

The Golfing Holiday

Golf is not just a sport travellers participate in on a whim. Thousands of people each year travel to this exotic nation exclusively to sample some of the best courses in the world. The golfing holiday takes travellers away to their resorts and hotels. Here they relax and get ready for a new game in five-star luxury. Each day they are taken to one of many golf courses in the country. The number of courses depends entirely on the type of holiday package, but either way it guarantees visitors the best the Mauritius has to offer. This is what Mauritius luxury holidays are all about.

Belle Mare Plage Golf & Spa Resort

This superb resort mixes an informal atmosphere with the height of luxury. It regularly changes to freshen up what it has to offer and is ideal for all types of holidaymakers. Golfers are spoiled for choice as they have two excellent courses from which to choose. The setting is just next to some of the island's most serene beaches. Bordered by coral reefs, golfers can relax in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean after a hard days' play.

The Legend and The Links are the two 18-hole golf courses challenging even the most experienced of golfers. They are of an international standard as the PGA has recognised them both. Each year this is where competitors from all over the world come to play at the Mauritius Open.

Heritage Golf & Spa Resort

The paradise island of the Mauritius offers the Heritage golfing holiday. Located between a towering mountain and the crystal waters of the Indian Ocean, golfers play in the middle of luscious vegetation and fabulous fauna. This course is based in a large uninhabited part of the island where virgin beaches witness tropical sunsets each night. Such an all-inclusive holiday lets tourists experience free golf on an 18-hole golf course, whilst also enjoying treatment at one of the biggest spas in the region.

Peter Matkovitch designed the 18-hole golf course at the Heritage Golf & Spa Resort. The South African architect used over 100 acres of land to carve out this manmade wonder. There are no green fees and affordable buggies are available for all. It is absolutely fantastic as it brings great challenges when dealing with environmental conditions like the wind. It is a fair course offering excitement and enjoyment for beginners and professionals alike.

Le Prince Maurice Golf and Spa Resort

Le Prince Maurice offers Mauritius luxury holidays to those looking to experience a holiday paradise complete with access to top golfing facilities. It is one of the only hotels in the world that has been given the prestigious Purple Shield by Relais & Chateaux. Golfers can enjoy staying in world-class accommodation. The Le Prince Maurice has the only over-water bungalows in the whole country. Private pools and marble baths are just some of the delights afforded when tourists stay here.

The Le Prince Maurice does not have its own private golf course. However, it is located within a stone's throw from a couple of internationally renowned golf courses. These are The Legend and The Links courses at the nearby Belle Mare Plage Resort. Golf enthusiasts can still enjoy their fair share of practice with a practice-putting course available to everyone free of charge.

Le Touessrok

Le Touessrok aims to exist as the pinnacle of Mauritian comfort and luxury. It has been labelled as one of the most romantic places on earth as this Mediterranean-style village uses wooden bridges to link some of the new suites. It is on Ile aux Cerfs Island, a mere ten minutes from the mainland, and features an awesome championship golf course. It also features a private retreat with spas, lovely vegetation, and really is a natural paradise.

Golfers have access to the championship golf course endorsed by the legendary Bernhard Langer. With free green fees, this affordable golfing experience on the Le Touessrok Golf Course is the place to enjoy something offered nowhere else on Mauritius.

It arouses every sense as the natural setting offers sights, sounds, and authentic smells of the island. The holes aim to challenge everyone from beginners to professionals, as Bernhard Langer designed this course with the sole aim of creating a game everyone will remember. Golf buggies are available from the centre at an affordable price, and those staying in other resorts can play here if they so wish.

Tips for Your Trip

Golfers should always take the necessary precautions prior to travelling to the country. Here are some of the few tips travellers should use to make their trip memorable and unforgettable for all the right reasons:

• Always take out insurance in case something goes wrong. Golf equipment is expensive and no tourist wants to lose out because of a foolish baggage handler or a stolen bag.

• Take extra equipment. Whilst Mauritius has plenty of shops with lots of the basics, some more specialist pieces may not be available on-demand.

• Plan the trip in advance. Most golfers prefer to experience the majority of the dozen Mauritian courses during their trips. Plan in advance to guarantee a streamlined and relaxed visit.
