Four Seasons Resort Anahita Mauritius: Golf Experience
There can only be one adjective to associate with the 18-hole, Par 72, championship course of Anahita Golf Club Anahita Mauritius: exceptional! At every level, and in every domain, one returns to this word… location, beauty, welcome, management team, golf pros, immaculate greens and large fairways, features, views, challenges, community relations, and much more beside. No golfer’s trip to Mauritius will be complete without a round on what is probably the best golf course in the Indian Ocean.
It is true that the team overseeing this course, the centrepiece of the Anahita sanctuary, has been handed a dream course, designed by multiple Majors winner Ernie Els. In terms of what every golfer, beginners to professionals, seeks when he is on a course, a round at this course, better known locally as the Anahita Golf Club, allows one to benefit from minute attention to detail, all with the objective of allowing the golfer to appreciate fully just where he is actually playing.
Departing the Club House, with its fancy Italian restaurant Il Forno, in an electric golf cart, complete with GPS and data, one approaches each individually named hole, each with 6 sets of tees (black, blue, white, gold, red, and green, with a dedicated scorecard for the children’s green tees). From this point, the recommendation can only be: enjoy the game and the ride through the course that is fringed by a vast azure lagoon, mangrove inlets, and the spectacular backdrop of green mountains in the distance. This course boasts of no less than 6 oceanfront holes!
An integral part of the offer is the 350 m driving range and putting greens, as are the tuition facilities provided by the Golf Academy, dedicated to enhancing the learning experience for each guest. Here, lessons include private instruction sessions such as a quick-fix with a few pointers, to playing a round with an instructor, or having your swing analysed using the latest video technology. The commitment of Anahita Golf Club Anahita Mauritius to improving community relations can best be seen in the daily free initiation to golf sessions open not only to resort’s guests, but also to any Mauritian wanting to discover about this wonderful game.
In 2018, the region’s premier tournament, the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open, the world’s only tri-sanctioned event will take place at this magnificent course with over 156 professionals from Europe, Asia, and Africa expected
