It's a rainy Sunday morning here in Auckland, New Zealand. Did you make it out onto the course during the weekend? If you didn't, that's ok because staying inside is always a good opportunity to do some reading on golf travel and your next premium golf tour!
Yesterday we asked you if you knew where the photo below was taken. No rain in this picture, only a beautiful golf scene in Mauritius. This week's Sunday reading and our sixth destination in our series of international golf travel destination is the beautiful island nation of Mauritius, located in the Indian Ocean.
Mauritius has a fascinating history and since independence from colonial powers in 1968, the country has achieved a lot in its development to become a stable, prosperous and democratic nation.
An excellent choice of destination for the discerning golf traveler, Mauritius has several golf courses of note.
The Heritage Golf Club is located in the south of Mauritius and is a multi award winning 27 hole championship golf resort. Voted by CNN as the best golf course in the Indian Ocean, a round on the 18 hole championship course is one for the memory books. Host to the AfriAsia Bank Mauritius Open in 2015, this event was tri-sanctioned by the European, Sunshine and Asian Golf Tours.
With stunning sea and mountain views, The Heritage is a unique golfing experience that allows golfers of all levels the opportunity to play on a championship course.
In a previous blog posting about Malaysia, we looked at several Ernie Els designed golf courses. Mauritius has its own Ernie Els designed course, located in the Anahita Golf and Spa Resort, a 5 star luxury and lifestyle resort that will have you marveling for months and years. If playing on Anahita is not enough, there is also a Bernhard Langer designed course called Ile Aux Cerfs Golf that will really get your golfing senses excited!
Anahita is a challenging Par 72 championship course that has been designed to USGA standards. Set between the land and the sea, many of the ocean front holes offer dramatic views and memories. The signature 4th hole which we featured above is arguably the best 4th hole in the world!
Staying at Anahita is a five star experience and the perfect place to stay on a premium golf tour. Watch the video below to get a clearer view of this spectacular destination.
Alongside the stunning championship golf courses and the luxury resorts, Mauritius has many other unique land and sea based travel experiences. From big game fishing to nature walks to cultural festivals, the nation caters for all desires and tastes of the discerning traveler.
Premium Golf NZ is able to arrange bespoke customised tour packages to Mauritius including flights, accommodation, transport and of course rounds on the championship golf courses. (*Subject to availability). An ideal for a golfing couple who may wish to spend their honeymoon or an ideal place to take the whole family for a 2 week golfing sojourn!
