Golf in Mauritius – Chamarel Mauritius activities


Green-Cottage Chamarel is  located just 35 minutes away from 3 amazing courses; the Heritage Golf Club, the Avalon Golf Club and the Tamarina Golf Club.

The Heritage has some unique and challenging features including rivers that run though it and you can enjoy a magnificent view of both the breath-taking colours of the ocean and the surrounding mountains. It is the course where the Mauritius Open takes place in collaboration with the European/Asian & Sunshine Tour.

Avalon is one of the most recent courses in Mauritius. Its natural contours among the tea plantations enhances the course but also brings character to the game.

Tamarina, a par 72 is a challenging course that undulates over 43 hectares of rugged savannah framed with mature trees and crossed by the Rempart river. Some holes have great views over the crisp blue Tamarin Bay.


Is golf a sport?
Writer Mario Santos Davidson, listed all the reasons why golfing is actually a sport – debunking that it doesn’t require lots of physical exertion.

  1. Difficulty
  2. Physically demanding
  3. Skill

So many factors go into every single shot, that no matter how low you play the sport, no two shots will ever be identical.

2.Physically demanding:
Golfers must walk about 5 miles during a typical round and twisting and turning your spine 40 times in a day requires some serious agility and athleticism.

The short game is the part of golf that is probably most reliant on natural talent and ability.
