Heritage Golf Club Mauritius is one of the world’s most sought-after golf destinations and a World Top 100 luxury golf and beach resort. With 45-holes of pristine golf nestled alongside a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and ocean vistas from every tee, Heritage Golf Club offers golfers, friends and families a rare opportunity to experience world class golf and create memorable moments in one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Here are 10 reasons why you should make Heritage Resorts your next golf holiday destination.
1. Heritage Golf Club
Heritage Golf Club has placed Mauritius on the world golf map thanks to its elite tournament pedigree as a seasoned host of DP World Tour events, its award-winning history and unrivalled beauty. Designed by the iconic Peter Matkovich, the 45-hole tropical masterpiece is a gem amongst Mauritian golf courses.
Established in 2004, Heritage Golf Club offers a world class golf experience, with two 18-hole championship courses, as well as an enjoyable 9-hole Par 3 course and a brand new state-of-the-art Golfzon Leadbetter Academy where golfers traveling to Mauritius, including elite players, groups and families, can now take advantage of top-level instruction all year round, with a range of stay-and-play packages.
2. La Réserve Golf Links
Heritage Golf Club’s La Réserve Golf Links, due to open in December 2023, will be the Indian Ocean’s first and only links-style course.
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. The course’s elevated tees, raised greens and spectacular views over Mauritius’ tropical bays and southern shores promises an exhilarating playing experience, reserved exclusively for club members, their guests and Heritage Resorts residents.
3. Le Château Golf Course
Stepping out into a pristine preserve of gentle foothills and generous fairways lined by centenary trees, and following in the footsteps of past DP World Tour AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open champions, Dylan Fritelli and George Coetzee, this is a golf experience of extraordinary natural beauty.
4. Where Golf and Nature Play Hand in Hand
Heritage Golf Club is at the forefront of sustainable golf, with its two courses designed harmoniously with nature.
La Réserve Golf Links has been planted with native island grasses, creating new, species-rich grasslands that encourage ecological diversity and valuable carbon sequestration. Le Château Golf Course is an established leader in sustainable golf and is participating in the OnCourse programme towards its GEO Certified status; the highest global standard for golf sustainability.

For the ultimate luxury experience, guests can stay in a private suite in the 19th century plantation house overlooking Le Château Golf Course and the French gardens, bathed in revived 19th century décor, for a true renaissance escape.
9. The Beauty of Bel Ombre
The 2,500-hectare Bel Ombre estate in Mauritius’ south-west corner is one-of-a-kind; enveloped by a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the estate houses a protected coastal and marine ecosystem, pristine nature, rivers, waterfalls and lagoons.
With an abundance of local flavours, Bel Ombre is a haven for culinary connoisseurs. Most of the ingredients served in the kitchens at Heritage Resorts are hand-picked from the estate. A choice of 12 restaurants awaits, including gourmet cuisine at Le Château de Bel Ombre, light meals at C Beach Club and hearty Italian delights at the Kuzini, to name just a few.
10. Memorable Moments
On days spent away from the golf course, guests can encounter all of the wonders in this small pocket of southern Mauritius, a realm brimming with unique adventures.
The crystal-clear Indian Ocean is the perfect spot for kayaking, kitesurf, scuba-diving, dolphin watching or big game fishing. Or, if you’d rather spend your days away from the golf course in the heart of nature, then the Bel Ombre Nature Reserve will gladly act as your land of possibilities with quad biking adventures, forest bathing, trail walks and cycles to suit all abilities. If you’d like a little help to relax, then the estate’s luxury spa is at your service with coconut massages to flower-scented baths, you’ll feel restored and rejuvenated for your next round of golf.
