Belle Mare Plage Legend: a European Senior Tour venue in beautiful Mauritius

Belle Mare Plage Legend: a European Senior Tour venue in beautiful Mauritius

bellemareplage_legend

The third golf venue in Mauritius I’d like to report on is the Constance Belle Mare Plage Legend course, sister course to the Links, and actually the older sibling as this course has been the first one of the two and effectively made Mauritius the golf destination it is today. The Legend is, from a vegetation point of view, very comparable to the Links. It’s a modern open parkland style with…

Bernhard Langer’s revenge: Le Touessrok Golf Club

Bernhard Langer’s revenge: Le Touessrok Golf Club

To make this clear right from the start: I really like this course. In retrospect that’s probably a very brave and self-destructive thing to say, but I absolutely enjoyed the hours spent on this course. I know there is a lot of criticism out there and I will touch on some things later, but let me assure you, if you are a keen golfer and you know how to strike the ball, then this is one great…

Belle Mare Plage Links: a great start to Mauritius Golf

Belle Mare Plage Links: a great start to Mauritius Golf

CBMP-Links1

Belle Mare Plage is the name of one of the prettiest beaches on the beautiful island of Mauritius and at the same time name for a hotel and two golf courses.

Mauritius is a typical golf and honeymoon destination so it was easy to combine the two. The hotels are first class and so is the service in all related activities and amenities. We booked a tee time via the concierge at the front desk at…

Barnbougle Golf Links in Tasmania, Australia

Barnbougle Golf Links in Tasmania, Australia

Normally I’m not a big links golf fan, but I just came across this video and I have to say this course looks absolutely fantastic. It immediately made it onto my course bucket list.

The website reads: “Tasmania is renowned for its untouched wilderness, pristine coastline, cool climate wines and fresh local produce. The rugged north east coast of Australia’s island…

I was lucky enough to schedule in some rounds of golf during my honeymoon to Mauritius. This island is a pure golf and honeymoon destination at the same time, so why don’t combine the two reasons…

During our 2 weeks we managed to play three rounds:

  • Constance Belle Mare Plage Golf Club, Links Course
  • Constance Belle Mare Plage Golf Club, Legend Course
  • Le Touessrok…

Second European Tour Event scheduled in Germany for 2015

For years I was complaining about the small number of tournaments being played in Europe, compared to those which belong to the European Tour but are actually played elsewhere in the world. Of course South-Africa or the Middle East offer a better climate during the European winter time, but I always was under the impression that the Continent deserves more tournaments played on home soil.

Back in action

Folks, I’m back in action, back from honeymoon, 3.5 weeks of pure relaxation and a bit of golf. The time in Mauritius has been absolutely amazing. The weather could have been a bit better, but the hotels, the beaches and the people couldn’t be beaten.

A lot has happened during my absence: Europe won the Ryder Cup, Oliver Wilson won the Alfred Dunhill Links…
