Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort, located in Bel Ombre, Mauritius, has been recognised as the Indian Ocean’s Best Golf Hotel at the 9th edition of the industry-leading World Golf Awards.
The accolade coincides with Heritage Golf Club’s recent announcement of its second course, La Réserve Golf Links, due to open in December 2023.
It will be the first and only contemporary links course in the Indian Ocean, reserved exclusively for club members and Heritage Resorts guests.
Jonathan Menteath, General Manager of Heritage Golf Club, said: “The inauguration of La Réserve Golf Links will make Heritage Golf Club the only 45-hole golf destination in the Indian Ocean, and we are eager to offer members, guests of Heritage Le Telfair and Heritage Resorts residents the opportunity to play one of the world’s most exciting new courses.”
Designed by acclaimed course architect Peter Matkovich, with the links expertise of Open Champion Louis Oosthuizen, La Réserve Golf Links will offer guests of Heritage Le Telfair privileged access to its modern clubhouse, expansive practice facilities, academy amenities and 18-holes of far-reaching views over tropical bays, sandy beaches and the Indian Ocean, adding to the wealth of activities already on offer at the five-star resort.
“Mauritius is evolving into a golf destination of global importance, not only attracting European golfers seeking a new challenge, but visitors from further afield, keen to blend the magic of the Indian Ocean with world-class golf,” commented Chris Frost, Managing Director of the World Golf Awards.
“Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort is the jewel in the crown of an Indian Ocean luxury golf holiday experience, and the recognition is a well-deserved award. Congratulations to the whole team,” he continued. “The eagerly anticipated La Réserve Golf Links at Heritage Golf Club, due to open at the end of 2023, will provide an undisputed reason to put Heritage on your must-visit list."
The new 18-hole signature course at Heritage Golf Club has been carefully designed with sustainability at the forefront using native grown grass and conservation measures, contributing towards future GEO Certified Development status, the global standard for sustainable course design and construction. This approach continues Heritage Golf Club’s commitment to preserve the 2,500-hectare Bel Ombre estate, located in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, while offering five-star service and amenities, be it at its beach resorts: Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort and Heritage Awali Golf & Spa, a luxury, all-inclusive resort ideal for families, and its collection of high-end real estate nestled in unspoilt countryside.
