Mauritius – a five star golf retreat

“I am not a pebble on the beach – a grain of sand on the seashore or justone of millions of creations – past, present and future.

No, I’m all this and more: the sound of rain; the sound of wind in a primeval wood; and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.

I’m Mauritius, I’m unique, I’m the fruit of the perfection of God’s creative powers.”

“Golf is a search for such perfection, for balance.

It’s about meditation and concentration.

It is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.”

Situated in the warm azure water of the Indian Ocean, this beautiful tropical island of Mauritius is famous for its vast stretches of pristine white-sanded beaches, warm temperatures and pleasant weather all year round which provide excellent conditions for golf and for a great golf holiday. Today golf is one of the top sports in Mauritius and one of the main attractions for visitors to the island.

Mauritius is the third country in the world where golf was played after the United Kingdom and India. The British Royal Navy members opened the first Golf club (The Gymkhana Golf Club) in 1902. The Mauritius Gymkhana Golf club is the oldest golf club in the Southern Hemisphere and the fourth oldest golf course in the world.
