There is a fantastic selection of luxury golf resorts all over the island. Each offers golf on site, with preferential rates and tee times for hotel guests. For a bit of variation, there is also the option to travel to other courses on the island. Mauritius is a slightly smaller island than Mallorca, so getting to and from any golf course is very easy.

With a tropical year-round climate, Mauritius can offer a golf holiday to suit any diary. Whether you are looking to escape for some winter sun or needing some well-earned R&R in the summer, your golf clubs will always be welcome and put to plentiful use.
Best golf courses in Mauritius?
Anahita Golf Course
Both Anahita and Heritage Golf Clubs take turns to host the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open each year, usually played in early December. The Legends and Links Golf Courses at Constance Resorts are very popular too and held in high regard. Île aux Cerfs is a truly unforgettable golfing experience, the course covering an island that is only accessible by boat transfer. With white sandy beaches and spectacular scenery, how you scored on the course is an afterthought.
