The courses are distributed on both sides of the island . Of course for a stay of 10 days it is possible to make a little excursion on the opposite coast to a small 18-hole, but hope to travel around the island to play on all courses is reserved for the most extremist of us or to the most… bachelors!
Transport times are long because the roads are winding and some cities very congested at certain times.
So basically, it is possible to identify two areas:
The south west with the golf courses of Tamarina (west), the course of Paradise at the foot of Grand Morne (south west), and the Château course, also known as Bel Ombre (south).
With a well located hotel, it’s pretty easy to play all the 3 courses without spending too much time in taxis. The 3 courses are very different and so cool to vary.
Tamarina is a course with a more natural design and relatively technical (High Rough are not allowed ...).
Paradise has a stunning location between mountain and lagoon at the foot of Le Morne . The views are beautiful and the golf course is not too difficult. Some water to the program even so ...

The Château is a golf course relatively tolerant more artificial and more "modern course" in its design.
This combination allows golfers to take up residence without any problem and without getting bored because the three courses complement each other well.
My advice: plan to replay several times Tamarina , more technical and to tame! With luck you’ll meet monkeys! If they laugh on your way, it is because they have seen your first shot into the water ...
East offers a more important panel.
There are the 2 courses of Belle Mare, The Links and The Legend. In principle, the Legend, the most difficult of 2 with lots of water, is reserved for guests of the Belle Mare Hotel. The Links is a fun course to play in a setting quite natural and rather technical.
Nearby, lies the course of Anahita, the newest of the Mauritian courses. Real American Golf, it is manicured, and the service is outstanding. The course is tailored to hitters because the place is not lacking.

Almost opposite, but only by boat, the famous course Touessrok located on Deer Island. Fantastic view and classified among the 10 most beautiful courses in the world!
Spectacular , it has to be discovered once and to replay it then ... to enjoy it ... The hardest thing is not to stop at some holes for swiming in the lagoon. It is also common to see appear the mast of a catamaran at a corner of a Green ...

We have not talked about 9-hole courses here. On the other side, a visit to plan concerns a path unknown to tourists because located in the center of the island, Vacoas. This is the Gymkhana golf course, steeped in history. It dates from 1844! See its page in the blog.
It can be played with a special green fee and if possible with Mauritian members for discovering all its corners ... It is the fourth golf built in by the English in the world. You will not have very often such an opportunity ... And then you will practice your little game. Who says old golf means small greens ...!

We hope that this will clarify the choice for golfers who do not know the destination yet.
Good golf and just ask if needed ...
