Golf

A golfing experience like no other in Mauritius, with a feeling of total freedom and endless views.

Avalon is an open, rolling layout designed by Peter Matkovich that is surrounded on all sides by breath-taking views. To the south is the ocean, where early starters can catch the rising sun as they start their game. A peek in the opposite direction provides a view of the majestic mountains that surround Grand Bassin – the largest natural lake in Mauritius, which was created by a now-extinct volcano.

The elevated nature of the course means that low clouds and cooler, breezy conditions are often to be expected. This was incorporated into the course’s design, with Matkovich creating a perfect balance of holes playing both with and against prevailing winds. Very few trees line the course, adding to its feeling of openness and playability, while numerous Tree ferns supplement the local flora and add a soft theme to the unique layout.

The course has a natural flow around the estate with numerous changes in elevation, combined with the breezy conditions, making club selection an important part of the experience at Avalon.
