At the 6th annual World Golf Awards, Avalon Golf Estate has been shortlisted as a nominee in the category of Indian Ocean’s Best Golf Course 2019.
The 18-hole championship course at Avalon is truly like no other on the island, having been designed by the ‘artist’ that is Peter Matkovich, blending the Bois Chéri tea plantations with its neat and uniform bushes, indigenous flora, rivers, ravines, and undulating hills.
Heading up the gradient for the final few holes on the only inland course in Mauritius, golfers will get spectacular views of the Southern Indian Ocean and most of the Avalon Golf Estate basking in typically tropical Mauritian sunshine.
Once the golf is over, a visit to the Country Club which houses a bar as well as The Magic Spoon Restaurant, with its menu of mouth-watering choices, is an absolutely necessary indulgence.
The World Golf Awards serves to celebrate and reward excellence in Golf Tourism and within the same category, Avalon Golf Estate is up against Heritage Golf Club Mauritius, Constance Belle Mare Plage, Anahita Golf Club, Golf du Bassin Bleu, Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club, Paradis Golf Club, Tamarina Golf Course and The Lemuria Golf Course.
Final deliberation will take place from October 28 to 30 October 2019 at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi where the winners of each category will not only attend but also get the opportunity for two days of golf that be played on the Troon managed, Gary Player designed, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.
