Avalon Golf and Country Club

Set inland on a high plateau, the Avalon Golf  and Country Club offers a refreshing new golfing experience in Mauritius. Surrounded by tea plantations, rivers, ravines, and mountains the course offers sweeping views of the Southern coastline. Featuring an undulating, windswept terrain and ravine-style landscape, the 18-hole golf course, has been designed to international standards by the world-renowned South-African architect Peter Matkovich. Apart from its distinctive and natural features, the Avalon course was designed in such a way so as to foster and bring out the indigenous flora and fauna of the south.

While most golf rounds in Mauritius are played along the coast, Avalon offers a contrasting golf experience, giving some welcome variety to a golfing holiday on the island. It is easily accessible from all parts of the island making it possible to play even you are staying at one of the coastal resorts such as Constance Belle Mare Plage or the Shangri-La Le Tousserok Hotel. There is no accommodation available on site.

The layout was designed with the prevailing South-East trade wind in mind. All par 3’s and par 5’s play in different directions, thus providing a variety of conditions throughout the round. The lush, green, all-season fairways, exceptional bunkering and the clever use of rivers and ravines features add to its challenge.

The course is perhaps best remembered for its signature hole number 4. The tee shot is played from a tee box set on an elevated ridgeline, across a ravine, to a fairway situated well below the tees. A breathtaking tee shot, that requires a degree of precision and commitment to the shot.

The par 3, 14th is one of the most difficult short holes on the course. At 164m off the men’s tee box, a  medium iron shot is played to a green with a small stream running along the right hand side of it. A bunker protects the left side of the green, so the conservative play might be to the area short left of the green, where a mound could deflect your ball back onto the front of the green. Making par is always a good score on this hole.
