Golf is a sport enjoyed by South Africans on a weekly basis. It combines beautiful scenery, great company, and fun all into one experience.
For many, golf is a sport that constantly tests your individual skill and patience. It is also a shared passion – one that you are able to enjoy in the company of others while allowing good conversation to flow and the round to be played. The drinks and laughter afterwards you often remember for days to come.
A famous quote by Dr Seuss states, “In golf, as in life, it’s the follow through that makes the difference.” This quote is true: making sure we make the most of our opportunities and experiences is vital. Make the most of the golfing opportunities with Club Med by taking a golfing holiday.
At Club Med, whether you are a seasoned golfer or a beginner, we offer our G.Ms the chance to enjoy the sport in incredible destinations to enrich your holiday experience.
There are many ways that we can make your golfing trip memorable and fun. Here are just three or many holidays we can offer you.
- Family trip: where the whole family can partake and enjoy the sporting experience. Or, perhaps leave the golf to those who play whilst the rest of the family embraces the All-Inclusive offerings and activities at the Club Med village (resort). Think watersports, volleyball, tennis, and more.
- A golf week away with your golf school or friends is a brilliant excuse to travel. Instead of going the usual local route, open up to the idea of teeing off on an exotic island like Mauritius. It is an opportunity to bring friends together, and to relax and unwind. You can use the stories from the round as the focal point while you enjoy the white sandy beaches, sea views, unlimited drinks, and the pleasures of an All-Inclusive resort.
- A business trip: whether it’s for team building or to entertain clients. Doing either of these on the Mont Choisy or Belle Mare Plage courses in northern Mauritius is best done with our Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers village. Our golf pros at the village (or resort) can help you work on your skills and the team can organise your full golfing experience on the courses.
The golf experience
Nestled in a park dotted with banyan, coconut, and palm trees, the highly acclaimed Mont Choisy Le Golf is home to the only 18-hole course in all of northern Mauritius. It is less than a five-minute taxi ride from Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers.
There is also the opportunity to experience the equally extraordinary Belle Mare Plage. The course is located on the eastern coast of the island and offers two 18-hole championship golf courses.
Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers (Mauritius)
Newly renovated in 2018, the village is located along the white sandy shores of Grand Bay and offers the best All-Inclusive experiences. The resort pays homage to true authentic Mauritian style with its open-plan architecture, enchanting traditional thatched roof huts, and plantation house accommodation.
Upon booking your stay, our Club Med team can assist you in booking your tee times. We offer packages for the above courses which include the green fees, transfers, and golf carts. If you would like to hire golf clubs, this can also be arranged by our team.
