Heritage Golf Club
Selected to host the 2015 AfrAsia Mauritius Open Golf Tournament, voted Mauritius' Leading Golf Resort and ranked among the Top 10 courses in Africa by CNN, Heritage Golf Club has also been voted Indian Ocean's Best Golf Course at the 2014 World Golf Awards - one of the highest accolades in golf tourism.
One benefit of owning at Villas Valriche is that residents are able to enjoy this superb golf course, with direct golf cart access through a private pathway.
The 18-hole Championship course features wide, undulating fairways, large greens, well placed water obstacles, purposefully placed bunkers and thick African elephant grass. It has wonderful scenery with a volcanic mountain backdrop and breathtaking sea views. Two rivers, 'Citronniers' and 'St Martin', cross the fairways, adding to the picturesque setting
The course is designed to challenge advanced players, but, with five tee positions for each hole and generous fairways, casual golfers will find it enjoyable and will certainly not tire of playing it. A number of holes feature challenging elevations and blind greens, and where the fairways narrow the option of landing in the rough becomes a threat.
A PGA run state-of-the-art golf academy and driving range, with top-rate instruction completes this course. For beginners or golfers wanting to practice their short game, there is also a 9-hole par 3 course on the site.
The club house is a wonderful place to relax after a round of golf, to enjoy a drink or for lunch. It offers a bar and restaurant and all the facilities expected along with a championship course managed by a 5* operator. It serves a wide selection of meals and drinks on the comfortable veranda overlooking the putting green and 18th green, offering amazing views of the course and the mountains behind. Non-golfers are welcome.
For golf lovers searching for a villa in Mauritius, this is truly paradise on your doorstep.
"Any Resort Golf Course needs to provide a challenge for the better player, yet provide a playable and enjoyable experience for the recreational golfer. Heritage Golf Club has the right balance and variation in length of holes, width of fairways, green sizes and ultimately the risk and reward element that is crucial on any Championship layout. I hope that you will all enjoy the experience, accept the challenges and reap all the rewards of a golf course, designed with passion, love and attention to detail."
