Mauritius is full of beaches and activities for all. Not only is it a great place to play golf leisurely but it is also the host to golf tournaments and games for the pros as well. The Four Seasons hosts theMauritius Open. South African golfer Frittelli found this tournament a key part of his career as it helped his name make the list of top 50 golfers on the Official World Golf Rankings and therefore hold Mauritius in high regard. The tournament is hosted in what is, for many, considered to be winter but in Mauritius it is warm and perfect golf weather in November and December.

The course at the Four Seasons is known to be both beautiful and challenging. It is sponsored by large companies, organizations and luxury brands to match the luxurious feel of the course and the island. Hosting large and world recognized tournaments such as this draws tourists and golfers alike. There are golfers from all over the world who come to play the courses both on and off the various resorts.

The Four Seasons golf course is especially unique as it was designed by a pro golfer Ernie Els and was designed with pro golf in mind. The course was designed so perfectly that it hosted the AfrAsia Masters for 5 years in a row, from 2010 to 2014. The course was also designed with 6 holes that allow golfers to play beside the breathtaking and humbling Indian Ocean.

Events like these put Mauritius on the map and beyond just the benefits to the golf community but also stimulate the economy of the country, draw tourists and help Mauritius become an increasingly independent and stable nation. It has helped make Mauritius make a name for itself and increase its popularity amongst European and international travelers.
