This Par 72 18-hole championship golf course covers an area of 38 hectares, almost half of the total surface area of the island. It is the 2nd largest golf course in Mauritius with a prestigious golf academy and regional championships.
Also known as Golf Club, this course was designed by Bernhard Langer with the intention of challenging the biggest competitors in the discipline. The Clubhouse overlooks the green and welcomes all golfers and guests.

Located between land and sea, the highly competitive Ernie Els Golf Course is a 6,828-meter, 18-hole, par-72 championship course with large fairways and five sets of tees.
Anahita Golf Course enjoys a location with a spectacular climate and we only want to get lost in the extent of its beautiful natural surroundings displaying stunning rocky outcrops, bushy endemic trees and splendid views of the mountains and the Indian Ocean.
Carefully woven in the tropical sanctuary, the course takes place on lush mountains and is lined with a vast crystalline lagoon. The course was built according to USGA’s standards and is managed by Four Seasons.

Belle Mare Beach Golf Club – The Links
Designed by famous South African golfer Hugh Baiocchi in 1994, the Legend Golf Course is one of two 18-hole courses situated at the Belle Mare Beach Resort, on the eastern coast of Mauritius.
Nestled in a former densely wooded hunting reserve, where the dangers of water threaten many holes, the course extends ton almost 6 kilometres, slightly longer than that of its neighbor: The Links.
The fairways, although tree-lined, are generally broad and forgiving and they play the greens that have recently been redesigned according to USGA standards.
The hardest hole of the card is the 4th par. Belle Mare Plage has been welcoming professional and amateur golfers since 1994 with major competitions such as the Mauritius Open. Now called the MCB Tour Championship, the 54-hole final of the European Senior Tour season is the culmination of a one-week golf competition that also features a pro-am tournament and several other amateur events.
