Set on the idyllic Domaine de Bel Ombre estate on the south western coast of Mauritius, the Heritage Golf Club was voted ‘Best Golf Club in the Indian Ocean in 2014’ by CNN. The course is set amidst rolling mountains and a turquoise lagoon, with stunning vistas in every direction. This award winning course provides an enjoyable yet challenging experience for golfers of all handicap levels. There is a second, 9 hole Par 3 course which is perfect for youngsters or anyone wishing to home their skills.
The golf course is open to guests staying at the Heritage Awali and Le Telfair Hotels located on the same estate, but is also open to outside visitors. Hotel guests get complimentary and unlimited green fees but have to pay for their golf carts.
Opened in 2004, the 18 hole course is characterised by wide open fairways and large, forgiving greens, some of which are guarded by water hazards. There are a number of holes with blind approach shots and the St Martin and Citronniers rivers come into play bisecting the fairways.
The layout is a standard loop of two 9 holes which wind around the par 3 course. There are 5 different tee boxes so there is something for every ability whilst still providing a test for single figure handicappers. Watch a video of the 18 hole Heritage course layout here.
The 9th is one of the holes which sticks in the memory, a long par 4 with a green guarded by water on both side. The 18th is a par 5 with spectacular views across the ocean from the elevated tee box and yet more water in front to the green.
There is a golf academy which offer lessons, the youngest age accepted is 6 years old and includes Footgolf and SNAG as a fun way to introduce children to the game.
