Bucket list experience:

Last updated: 16 November, 2022
Expert travel writer: Fionn Davenport

Set on its own island, this beautiful course is the epitome of a golfing idyll. The island itself – the Ile Aux Cerfs – is impossibly beautiful, a perfect tropical picture of blindingly white sand and lush vegetation framed by aquamarine waters. And it’s here that golf legend Bernhard Langer created a stunner of a championship course

The undulating terrain wends its way through volcanic outcrops, lakes and gullies. Every hole has a view of the Indian Ocean. This is pure golfing indulgence – it’s like playing golf at the private course of a Bond villain (minus the attempts at world domination).

Age suitable: 13+

Getting there & doing it

Boats run from Pointe Maurice every 20 minutes. Book a tee-time through the website; guests staying at the Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa get preferential tee times. Langer’s Bar & Grill is on the island’s highest point and serves local (seafood) specialties.

When to do it

The tee sheet is open 7 days a week from 7.30am; twilight rates (after 3pm) are half price. Golf is a year-round activity in Mauritius, but the rainy season roughly falls between January and March, when the threat of cyclones is highest.
