Heritage Golf Club offers the Indian Ocean’s only 45-hole golf destination.
Mark Twain was right in saying that “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and heaven was copied after Mauritius.”
The secluded Indian Ocean island, situated off South Africa’s western coast and inhabited by just one million residents, boasts over 170km of sandy, golden beaches with crystal-clear turquoise waters teeming with vibrant coral reefs.
Once the home of the flightless dodo, now extinct, this tropical island offers moderate temperatures, gentle trade winds and ample sunshine. You’ll also find natural history, volcanic mountains, lush green forests and rolling hills, providing a dramatic backdrop to the beachy coastline.
Find out why you should visit Mauritius – not least of which because Heritage Golf Club, crafted along the southwestern shore of the island, has just opened the first and only contemporary links golf course in the Indian Ocean, La Réserve Golf Links.
A day at Heritage Resorts starts as all days should, with the sound of the ocean lapping against the shore, the scent of the sea breeze, and the peaceful melody of tropical birds singing.
After a tranquil night’s sleep in your beautiful suite at Heritage Le Telfair, head down for breakfast at the resort’s elegant, brasserie-style restaurant Annabella’s for a delicious feast, where the atmosphere and service will make you feel right at home.
For those travelling with family or large groups, the resort also offers two additional luxury accommodation options, Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort, a five-star all-inclusive experience, and Heritage The Villas, a collection of luxury private villas in the heart of the estate.
Tee time at Heritage Golf Club
After an indulgent breakfast, it’s time to make your way to Heritage Golf Club.
Before heading to the 1st tee, golfers can warm up on the driving range or nine-hole short course, hone your short game on the practice putting and chipping greens, and visit the newly opened Golfzon Leadbetter Academy, the first and only coaching centre of its kind in the Indian Ocean.
The choice is then yours. Step out onto the pristine fairways, greens and naturally beautiful surrounds of the 18-hole Le Château Golf Course, recently voted the Indian Ocean’s Best Golf Course.
For links golf lovers on the other hand, Heritage Golf Club’s new course – La Réserve Golf Links – is a must-play.
Co-designed by former Open Champion Louis Oosthuizen, alongside acclaimed course architect Peter Matkovich, the layout is inspired by the wild open spaces of the great links designs and is the first contemporary links golf course in the Indian Ocean and host venue of the 2023 AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open, a DP World Tour event.
Sundowners on the veranda
Après golf, is a ‘must’. Enjoy the luxury comforts, relaxed atmosphere and warm hospitality at Le Château Golf Course clubhouse, a perfect blend of an English Country Club and a French Brasserie, where magnificent views of the verdant fairways, rolling hills of the Domaine and the historic 19th century colonial mansion of which the course takes its name complete a post-round experience.
If you have taken up the challenge of La Réserve Golf Links, the clubhouse’s one-of-a-kind ‘green’ roof terrace is the spot to indulge in a refreshing beverage or enjoy delicately prepared dishes, all from locally sourced ingredients, while watching golfers sweep down the 18th fairway and play to the final green.

The warm sea waters and stunning white sands, surrounded by coral reefs and vibrant fauna and flora, coupled with the island’s year-round tropical climate, provide the perfect location to sit back and relax after a morning on the course.
