Characteristics

The Gymkhana, a private club, is the oldest 18-hole golf course in the highlands of the island. Still, non-members can also play this course from Monday to Friday. Even players with a high handicap can try this course as it is relatively easy. On the weekends, the golf course is reserved for members. The temperatures are here a little lower as in the coastal regions and there is a chance of short rain showers.

Playing once is ok

Founded in 1844 by the British military, the course is said to be around 5,600m long. Why so? The printed score card is so wrong that one could only rely on the information whether par 3 or 4 etc.
The reception was very friendly, thank God a caddy was more or less forced on us, the fairways are lined up a bit strangely, or if they intersect, then you have to cross a street.
Poor course maintenance, tee boxes well, fairways not recognizable or only very bad, since the Bermuda grass was generally very high on the fairways. Most of the bunkers are very hard, others with a lot of sand. There are no water hazards. Greens from small to large, but quite slow compared to the other places.
Green fee around €40 per person, caddy €8 + tip.
Restaurant very friendly service, food and drinks extremely cheap!

Neat place with good greens. Nice for in between

With hotel places by the sea one can not compare the Gymkhana club. This is about the game and not the trappings. I was greeted warmly in the secretariat and could play on Tuesdays without booked tee time. The caddy is obligatory and also advisable, as the route between the tracks is sometimes not clear at first glance. The haircuts are a bit worn, but on the whole ok. The greens are in perfect condition. I did not see any water hazards. The bunkers are easy to play and not a big challenge. All in all, I would recommend the club to people who like to work in the square between work. For tourists it is recommended to play the nicer places of the well-known hotels. Here in particular from the Belle Mare Plage and Tamarina Golf Estate.

Golf without tourists

Played on 20/04/2017. The oldest golf club in Mauritius has 18 holes and is quite central just to the west in the middle between two larger towns below from Port Louis. One should have a good map or GPS to have the club to find because a sign we have not seen. It is clearly a members club, tourist track down here. You have to make the Nobel Hotel places a lot of compromises. It is a flat parkland course with virtually no water hazards or other challenges. Sufficient bunkers are available but unfortunately with concrete hard sand in it. The course is short, grown the trees and there are a few doglegs. some getting used to that a partly come out on the same track player contrary, since the fairway for example, of the webs is divided 3 and 4. FIG. Also to play a lot of roads along with the appropriate noise level. On the back nine you can still cross a street and plays along the eingezäumten Police Academy. The condition was a whole rather mixed, the discounts not cut, uneven and not very attractive. However, the partly strongly crimp greens were in top shape. As a guest player should advance to reserve a day, a start time. Weekdays can be played 7:30 to 13:00 AM. The playing for our start time at 11 am was manageable. The e-mail reservation through the caddy master was working properly. We were honored at the counter and some in the aging clubhouse friendly welcome. The very favorable indeed for Mauritius green fee equivalent to 48 € per person I wanted to pay by credit card. After a long march through all the offices of the club house one then a functioning card reader found in the restaurant. Don`t worry be happy! Guests must play with Caddy and the Polo is one course in the pants. Carts do not exist. The our assigned caddies were good and friendly, could be typing and make phone calls but then did not resist. The Caddyfee will cost without tip again converted 8 €, which should of course be rounded generous. A driving range does not exist! Finally safe to golfing experience with locals (the slightly better-heeled), but a must, it is certainly not here.
