Dubai, UAE – In the realm of luxury travel, golf holds an undeniable significance and allure. The sport’s association with opulence makes it a cherished pursuit for discerning travellers. Among the exclusive destinations in the Indian Ocean region, Constance Hotels & Resorts stands out as a premier choice, offering the perfect fusion of luxury and golfing excellence.
Golf has historically been linked to the upper classes, with its origins rooted in the eastern coast of Scotland, near the royal capital of Edinburgh. In its early days, players aimed to propel a pebble over dunes and through tracks using a bent stick or club. However, during the 15th century, as Scotland prepared to defend itself against potential invasions, the nation’s fervour for golf became a distraction from military training. Consequently, King James II’s Scottish parliament banned the sport in 1457. The game’s popularity rapidly transcended Scottish borders in the 16th century, largely thanks to royal endorsements. King Charles I introduced golf to England, while Mary Queen of Scots took the game to France during her studies there.
The Indian Ocean, known for its breathtaking landscapes and stunning resorts, boasts some of the most beautiful and legendary golf courses. Mauritius, an island paradise, is home to remarkable golfing treasures, including the celebrated Links and Legend golf courses. Similarly, Seychelles beckons golf aficionados with the captivating Lemuria Golf Course. What sets these golf courses apart is not just their design and challenging layouts but their affiliation with luxury 5-star hotels—Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius and Constance Lemuria in Seychelles.
Year after year, these golf courses host esteemed events that draw in enthusiasts and professionals from around the globe. One such event is the MCB Tour Championship, a senior tournament held annually in Mauritius, and it finds its prestigious home at Constance Belle Mare Plage. Mark your calendars, as the tournament is slated to take place from December 4 to December 10, 2023, promising golf enthusiasts an unforgettable experience amidst the tropical splendour of Mauritius.
Adding to the glamour of these world-class golf destinations is the recent recognition bestowed upon them by the distinguished World Golf Awards, which is celebrating its remarkable 10th year. Among the illustrious champions, the Legend Golf Course at Constance Belle Mare Plage has secured the coveted title of ‘Indian Ocean’s Best Golf Hotel 2023.’ These awards serve as a beacon of excellence in the international golfing community, showering praise on outstanding achievements in golf tourism, and shining a spotlight on premier courses and unparalleled golfing destinations around the world.
