The award-winning Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club is a sublime place to spend a gorgeous day in paradise while making the most of the pristine greens, world-class golfing facilities and excellent golf academy; it’s little wonder that it has quickly risen to the ranks of must-play course for ardent golfers. This exceptional and wonderfully unique course is simply breathtaking; stretched across 38 hectares of the southern half of Ile aux Cerfs Island (which is only accessible by helicopter or boat), the holes have been placed amongst beautifully kept greens that twist and weave past lakes and through lush endemic gardens which fade into silky soft beach sand and the gorgeous teal waters of the Indian Ocean. In the distance the undulating volcanic landscape of Mauritius serves as the perfect backdrop—a game of golf just doesn’t get more scenic than this.
This sensational 18-hole par 72 golf course was designed by the golfing legend Bernhard Langer and has been ranked number 1 in the UK’s Top 20 of the World’s “Must-Play” Golf Courses according to Golf World (among other prestigious awards). Designed to be equal parts challenging and enjoyable, this sensational golf course is accessible to players of all levels and is the epitome of a golfing paradise.
This November (on the 1st), this tranquil golfing oasis will be celebrating its 15th anniversary in style, where golfing guests will be treated to VIP experiences and once-off offers to commemorate 15 years of incredible golf experiences at Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club.
Here’s what you need to know about this phenomenal golf course and it’s 15th anniversary:
The celebrations have already started
On Saturday 27 October 2018, the festivities kicked off with the annual Ile aux Cerfs golf competition, the E-Golf Buzz, which this year, doubled up as a celebration of the Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club’s anniversary. Fantastic prizes we awarded to the winners, one of which was a flight to Europe. At the end of the tournament, those who participated (some 80 players), were invited to enjoy a special evening at La Flibuste (the exclusive golfer’s beach) for a gala dinner which was enhanced by a magnificent fireworks display and a private concert by the famous local artist Zulu.
November 1 2018 is bound to be a memorable day
Those fortunate enough to be in Mauritius on 1 November 2018 are in for some incredible surprises. Not only will there be a newly-acquired poster in the Club House signed by none other than Bernhard Langer himself as well as a 15th-anniversary video in which he features and an Ile aux Cerfs associate video created especially for the occasion, but the day itself will be filled with incredible experiences and memorable moments for guests.
For golfer’s who will be visiting Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club on the day, there will be special complimentary drinks and snacks offered. There will also be decorations on the boats and throughout the property, a birthday special on the Langer Burger and Cocktail at the restaurant (which will also be offered at all four Sun Resorts), exclusive Sun Golf Timeless Memories surprises at the hotels as well as other discounts, competitions and offers. The day will also be marked by a novel display of pictures of Ile aux Cerfs over the last 15 years. It’s bound to be an extraordinary and unforgettable celebration.
