Belle Mare Plage, with its two awe-inspiring championship courses, is arguably the most established golfing destination in Mauritius, presenting high quality layouts in an environment of unimaginable beauty.
The Legend Course is the crowing glory of Belle Mare Plage's golfing arena, and was designed by South African Hugh Baiocchi. The course (6,611 yards) skirts one of the island's most idyllic beaches, and is carved through the wildlife-rich forests of Mauritius' east coast. Baiocchi's concept was realised by a construction process in accordance with USGA guidelines, and its greens are renowned for their slick surfaces. Each hole is truly unique around this most amazing course, from the legendary layout to the views of the famous Mauritian coastline.
Added to the Belle Mare Plage Resort in 2002, the Links Course measures 6,518 yards, and was designed by Rodney Wright, in conjunction with golfing legend Peter Alliss. The par-71 layout has matured nicely since its inauguration, and has helped to ease the traffic around the famous Legend Course. The same water features and woodland help to provide beauty and challenge. With the club house in sight, golfers have to hold their nerve to carry the water that guards the final green at this magnificent resort course.
I really enjoyed the Legends golf course. It is fairly technical and always in great condition. Unlike the Links, you do not need to take a buggy, so you can really enjoy walking the course, but it is more difficult than the Links.
The greens are fast and there is quite a lot of water on the course so you need to be accurate.
The par 3 17th hole is really enjoyable, playing over the lagoon to a well protected green. If there is any wind, be careful. Anything off target will disappear.
The club house is great and if you do play golf early in the morning, you can get a continental breakfast at the club house before your round. If you are staying at the hotel, the club house also has the Deer Hunter Restaurant which is a great alternative to the hotel restaurant.
