Le Touessrok Golf Course is across the water form the resort mainland on its own beautiful island, Ile aux Cerfs - 'island of deer'. The deer have gone, and what has been created here has been described as the 'wonder of the game'.
Bernhard Langer designed the 18 hole, par 72 championship course to challenge advanced players, while remaining exciting and playable for recreational golfers.
This is achieved with four sets of tee decks for each hole, so the angles of attack and approach vary. There is a generous provision of fairway where appropriate. The greens are mainly small and undulating, requiring precise approach shots.
Situated on the east coast of Mauritius, the resort is only 50 minutes from the airport and 50 minutes from capital Port Louis. Golfing on the atoll cannot get finer than this resort.
You cannot picture playing golf in finer settings. With every plausible world class golfing proviso at hand, golfers in Le Touessrok feel like in golf heaven. The golf course is an 18 hole, par 72 course on its own atoll in Mauritius. The championship course shows startling concept and perfect execution.
Designed by the legendry Bernhard Langer, Le Touessrok golf course was just named as the 10th best golf course in the world by the top golf magazines. After all, which other golf course boasts glimpses of the gorgeous sea on all 18 holes.
Surrounded by white sand and the azure Indian Ocean, Le Touessrok offers remarkable scene with holes snaking up and down the length of the resort. There are nine lakes in total with plentiful holes requiring tee shots across sea inlets into fairways. Those who have been to Le Touessrok at least once would agree that the island is just wonderful for golf.
Playing at over 7000 yards, this is longest course in Mauritius. The course offers both long and short gentle and demanding holes requiring accuracy as well as prior thought. Langer designed this course to challenge professional players while also keeping it interesting for recreational golfers. The resort is a favourite for golf professionals due to its perfect blend of the playability and the scenery. It remains Open from early morning till sunset, and offers its golfers ample time to add finesse to their shots.
What must be said is take golf balls and lots of them. Speaking to the Director, David Marsh, he even admitted that when he returns to the UK on holiday he begins to realise how difficult Le Tourssrok is. Its the Carnoustie of Mauritius or perhaps the Canousite of Mauritius, the Indian Ocean and Africa. Its tough.
Personally, I think that everyone should play this course simply because of its beauty, situation and to experience the boat trip to the club house. Its exceptional. But remember - do not expect to have your best round here unless you are a very good golfer or very lucky. Its very hard but knowing this, enjoy the location and one of the most stunning rounds you will have.
At Le Touessrok, enjoy the lifestyle that others only dream of. Relax yourself in the first class luxury of the resort, or if it isn’t enough, you can have the chance to walk down the footsteps of Woods, Singh, and Montgomerie.
The 87 hectare Ile Aux Cerfs island has a coastline of little bays, inlets and promontories natural undulating topography, volcanic rock outcrops, lakes and gullies, and a variety of tropical trees and plants. The course covers 38 hectares and is the second longest in Mauritius, with the holes snaking up and down the length of the island. All 18 holes have views of the ocean some with glimpses across clearings through the trees; others by coming close to the shore. Expansive white sand bunkers and water set off the natural backdrop of trees and vegetation perfectly. Water is an essential feature of the course.
There are nine lakes in all, and three of the holes require tee shots across sea inlets to the fairways. The luscious turf is Salam Seashore Paspalum grass, which is resilient in the tropical climate and allows the highest standards of course conditioning.
Bernhard Langer, designer Bernhard Langer is one of Europes all time greats, and held in the highest regard throughout the game. His playing tri hs include majors at the US Masters, Augusta, where he has twice been a winner of the Green Jacket. He was non-playing captain of the victorious European Team at the 2004 Ryder Cup at Oakland Hills. He has won three PGA Tour events and 58 international titles in all. In 2002 he was honoured with his induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
This is just one of the most beautiful golf courses you can play ... but be warned its not easy.
The location is just perfect and the idea that you must get a boat from the hotel to the golf course just makes the whole experience that much better. The club house is fantastic, but the course is just stunning.
It is really difficult so take lots of balls with you because buying ball a the club, even lake balls is expensive. Check out the view from the green of the 11th hole across the lagoon. If you like playing golf in one of the most stunning venues, it is a must, but do not take your score too seriously.
