Where they’re playing: La Réserve Golf Links

Dec 13, 2023 | Featured, Features

The magnificent new La Réserve Golf Links will make its international championship debut when it hosts the 2023 AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open from 14-17 December, opening its fairways to the leading professionals on the DP World Tour and Sunshine Tour.

La Réserve Golf Links at Heritage Golf Club, co-designed by major champion Louis Oosthuizen and Peter Matkovich, offers an unparalleled experience of pure golfing drama. With panoramic ocean views from every hole, this exhilarating new course plays hand-in-hand with nature alongside a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Inspired by the wild open spaces of the great seaside links, former sugar cane fields have been sensitively planted with native grasses to create rich rolling grasslands, encouraging ecological diversity. Every step has been carefully monitored, contributing towards future GEO Certified Development status, the global standard for sustainable course design and construction.

The golf course is unique in its routing, requiring a shuttle service to take players inland and up the beautiful Mauritian landscape to the first tee. From there, players play 18 holes down away from the undulating Savanne mountain rage, back to the clubhouse (the elevation differential between the first tee and the 18th green of almost 600 feet!). With such changes in altitude, it is unsurprising to know that La Réserve offers up some breathtaking views. Panoramic vistas of the Indian Ocean are on show on every hole, whilst being set in amongst some of the most gorgeous Mauritian landscape.

The objective of the Heritage Golf Club is to have La Réserve Golf Links included in the world’s top 100 golf courses.

La Réserve Golf Links adds significantly to the already world-class golf offering in the south of Mauritius and on the renowned Bel Ombre estate, with Heritage Golf Club having hosted the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open on three previous occasions on its critically acclaimed Le Château Golf Course. This new addition transforms Heritage Resorts into the only 45-hole golf destination in the Indian Ocean, establishing the south of the island as a true home of golf.
