Golf history 

The sport was introduced to the island in 1844 when Mauritius was a British colony.  Officers of her Majesty played at the military base. The Gymkhana Club was built on these grounds.
This club is the oldest golf club in the Southern hemisphere. She has retained some of her colonial charm. 

I remember …
Playing tennis at the Gymkhana when I was a teenager. No need to pick up our stray balls. Young boys waited on the courts to do that! 
Waiters dressed in white with a red turban and well-polished brass buttons. Afternoon tea , dear. No cakes! Instead? Samoosas and chilli bites…

Golf and Sugar

The building of golf courses in Mauritius is linked to sugar. It was our main commodity. What happened? The sugar price started going down in the late 20th century. No need for so many sugar plantations. 
Tourism started to pick up during that time. Some of the surplus land was used for building golf courses with luxury resort hotels. Et voila!

Wishing you a fabulous golf holiday in Mauritius!
