Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa has a superb location on the island’s south-western tip and is a haven for sports lovers and families alike.
A true sporting paradise in Mauritius, Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa offers an extensive choice of complimentary land and water sports plus the opportunity to play on three championship golf courses in the vicinity including its very own 18-hole international golf course. The hotel also has a golf academy welcoming beginners and seasoned golfers alike and a Spa which provides the perfect setting to soothe the body and mind.
The front nine sweeps from the clubhouse away from the bay, twice crossing the marina that provides a further watery challenge before arriving back at the edge of the bay. Of the front nine holes the 3rd and 5th are quality par fives and the 9th is SI1 and has water all the way down the right hand side of the fairway to a green built into the marina.
The magic of the course really takes off from the 10th tee. The course sweeps out and back along the bay, all the way to the headland and then turns back to the clubhouse… nine holes of stunning golf. It’s difficult to pick holes for special mention from these nine, but, if you had to, then the views and challenge of 12,13,16 and 17 would take the plaudits. The green of the reachable par five 16th is a magical place and only those with a very straight and long game should take on this second shot. But even if it takes you 3 shots, this is not a problem as the view is amazing.
The verdict : Paradis Beachcomber Golf is a great design with testing and consistent greens and excellent hazard placement and Mauritius is a beautiful exotic island in the Indian Ocean with a number of good golf courses, but I think Paradis is a rival to any of them for the No.1 status!
Note that if you stay at the hotel the green fee will be around 25€
