“Golf is a good walk spoiled” is a quote attributed to American novelist Harry Leon Wilson. If you happen to be walking the fairways and greens of some of the most beautiful golf courses on the Indian Ocean islands however, you will be willing the walk to go on and on… Crystal blue ocean views, white sandy beaches and lush green landscapes form the backdrop for the three iconic Constance golf courses in Mauritius and Seychelles.
Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius and the Seychelles’ Constance Lemuria are at the top of the list. At the 9th annual World Golf Awards last year, the Legend Golf Course at Constance Belle Mare Plage was awarded the prestigious accolade of Indian Ocean’s best golf course, acknowledging it as a world class 18-hole course, and reinforcing Mauritius as a leading golf tourism destination.
Constance Hotels and Resorts is also one of only 60 global companies and organisations to receive this year’s IAGTO (Global Golf Tourism Organisation) Outstanding Service Award. This is awarded to golf tourism industry suppliers who deliver the best experience and service for their golf travelling clients, ensuring that golf tourism continues to deliver a vital segment of the global travel and tourism marketplace.
Surrounded by Mauritian forest, the championship golf course is dotted with natural ponds and plants and has been created atop ancient volcanic rocks and craters.
Constance Resorts also lays claim to the only 18-hole golf course in Seychelles at its five-star Constance Lemuria resort. Set in verdant native vegetation, the course is adjacent to three of the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles, including Anse Georgette, voted one of the best beaches in the world by Condé Nast Traveller. Sprinkled with natural ponds and gentle hills, its unique topography offers spectacular views of the Indian Ocean and the Coco de Mer palm trees.
If you feel you need a little help with your swing or putting action, the Constance Golf Academy offers guests the full golfing experience.
If golf is your game – and even if it’s not – a walk around the 18 holes of the Legend or Links courses at Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius, or the idyllic course at Constance Lemuria in Seychelles, will certainly prove to be quite the opposite to a ‘good walk spoiled’!
