A UNIQUE GOLF COURSE ALONG THE LAGOON
ANAHITA GOLF CLUB
A paradise for golfers, the Anahita Golf course is a delight for amateurs and professionals alike.
The Anahita golf club spectacular golf course, with many of the holes hugging the water’s edge of the largest lagoon in Mauritius, was opened in 2008 and built to USGA standards. The golf course is challenging for all golfers and six different tee off options gives every player the opportunity to appreciate the intricacies of this golfing master piece. Don’t forget your camera; the course presents many opportunities to capture your special memories.
One of South Africans favourite golfing sons, multiple champion, Ernie Els, was intrigued and excited when he visited the site for the first time. It was a pioneering adventure through the thick bush which populated this part of the island. Ernie’s designs always incorporate wide fairways, well bunkered greens and a host of teeing options, all ensuring a fun but challenging experience.
In this pasture, nestles between ocean and mountains, the biggest challenge of the one who surveys is to stay focused as the surrounding natural features are truly captivating.
A COURSE DESIGNED BY ERNIE ELS
FORMER WORLD NO. 1 AND ANAHITA GOLF COURSE DESIGNER
We wanted to make sure this course has all the right ingredients for a memorable golf day. We wanted to maximize the impact of this wonderful scenery; we wanted it to be challenging with a varied design that would appeal to players of all abilities. We wanted it to feature classic and innovative design touches to ensure that every hole is distinctive. I think we hit the bull’s eye on all fronts and, as I said, we’re very proud of it.

As soon as I came to Anahita for the first time, I immediately phoned my loved ones and said ” This is the place “! This part of the world needed a “big” course, a course that lived up to this piece of paradise. Ernie Els understood this well and managed to integrate three important elements. First of all, he featured all the modern golf architecture ingredients. Then he used all the natural elements that form part Anahita’s character, whose unforgettable holes built on the lagoon really stand out. And finally, the course is as interesting to golfers on vacation as it is to Professionals playing on tour. Depending on which tee you start your round on and the strength of the wind, the course can be flattering or reveal its claws! The views are breath-taking all year long, a real treat. But for me the pleasure of driving onto welcoming fairways will remain a thrill, I just love it…
