Characteristics

Avalon the highland golf destination.

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. The course is well balanced and has something to offer every level of golfer, with some shorter par fours to entice the longer hitters and a number of reachable par fives. The collection of memorable par threes showcases the brilliance of the course design and, given the panoramas of the area, spending some extra time on the tees to take in the views is advisable.

From the first hole, it is noticeable that the fairways are wide enough to allow plenty of forgiveness for the odd miss-hit shot. The risk-and-reward par four fourth is the course’s signature hole, and for good reason. From an elevated tee, a river cuts across the start of the fairway below, with a small pot bunker peeking out from the left. Thick natural vegetation line the fairway’s left flank, while the right side consists of a slightly more forgiving steep hill. At only 238 metres long, the green is well within range for most players, but so is a lot of the surrounding danger. Such is the nature of Avalon.

A number of tee options cater for all level of golfer, and from the club tees the course is an enjoyable 5 847 metres. For the proficient player, true tournament golf conditions can be experienced from the championship tees, which stretch the course to a hefty 6 318 metres.

Golfers can enjoy the acclaimed restaurant The Bunker for light meals before, or after, their round at this ground-level restaurant. Others may simply wish to enjoy a relaxed sundowner at the bar. The Bunker is a smaller, cosier option for functions, with a more relaxed feel (80 pax maximum).

The more spacious Magic Spoon restaurant, above The Bunker, can accommodate up to 350 guests (with adjoining marquee) for any occasion. Its modern, flowing layout affords privacy to smaller gatherings and ample space for bigger parties. The well-lit, spacious interior lends itself to any celebration, against a stunning backdrop of panoramic views with the golf course below.

The Chef and his team will enchant you with the quality and variety of culinary options, or accommodate any request for large groups. Specialty Creole dishes, with a European twist, are the order of the day; crafted using locally sourced fresh produce. The diverse menu will appease any appetite, ranging from fresh salads for the health-conscious to a gourmet burger or panini for the hungrier guests. For the more refined palate, a delicious local curry is always a crowd pleaser or a Magret de canard from our signature plates. Our sommelier will be delighted to pair some wines, handpicked from across the globe, to complement your dish of choice.

Great experience

Played a round here on November 21st, 2023. Very friendly reception. Cart (included and necessary due to the sometimes long distances from one school to the next) is available, Cadymaster accompanies guests to the reception. Since the course was quite well played, we started from tee 10. So we were able to play a great round in 3 hours. Some spectacular holes, relatively wide fairways but still varied. The greens are in good condition, although not the fastest.
Rackets are cleaned and loaded back. The ride from the hotel to the golf course was also organized by the golf course and was very pleasant. Driver told us a lot about Mauritius and was entertaining and educational. All this for free when you stay at Shanti Maurice. really amazing

Beautifully overlooking the Indian Ocean

I played GC Avalon today with HCP 15.2, at the end of April, i.e. at the end of the rainy season.
Yellow haircuts with 5820 m are long enough, no tourist haircuts.
Rarely have I met such friendly staff, from the Caddy Master to the ProShop.
The place is a dream, fairways well maintained meander all the way to the Indian Ocean. The greens are very well maintained, lightning fast, 9 stipmeter, very easy to read.
Even after recent rains, no excessive wet spots, large chip, putt and practice area.
Great restaurant with incredibly friendly service

Golf course in the mountains

Despite a tee time booking in June 2022, in November 2022 we were pushed in somewhere between a short-term private tournament of a golf travel group. After we got there we were presented with a fait accompli.
The course has the signature hole with lane 4. The fairways with a view of the Indian Ocean are beautiful, the uphill fairways are also well integrated into the landscape, but no comparison to the Heritage Golf Club not far away. Often, to get to the tees, you have to drive along the streets where new villas are being built. m
The architect of the clubhouse has placed an unattractive concrete block in this otherwise beautiful Mauritian mountain world.
In my opinion, there are certainly more spectacular golf courses in Mauritius.
