Great location with beautiful views of the countryside and the sea. The service was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful. We hired buggy and clubs. The buggy was fitted with a GPS, to follow the course and give you tips on the layout and approach for each hole. This was a very helpful and fun feature, especially if it is your first time on the course. The clubs we hired were good quality but could have been cleaner.
The course Marshall came round and helpfully checked how we were doing as we went round. The staff in the club house were friendly and efficient.
They approach to the greens were heavily watered the day we played, this meant very little ran on. They are looking at the drainage around the holes to see if they can improve the run on.
Thoroughly enjoyed our round there and would recommend it to anyone visiting.

The golf course is in really excellent conditions. I've played it in 2018 and it has developped tremendously. Excellent Fairways and greens (could be a nuance faster) and botanic surroundings. Very kind and professional service at 19th hole... Congratulations Avalon Team! We will definitely come back with more groups. Dieter Lindner CEO Classic Golf Tours

Nice forgiving course. Everything was ready on arrival, ice, cart, clubs etc. Some beautiful holes with big ravines going the them. The course itself had some well placed bunkers but with the wide fairways there not to hard to navigate. I did like the odd missed shot then watching your ball roll down the hills around the green. Enjoyable well priced day out that didn't cost a arm and leg

I played on this course and thoroughly enjoyed it, even though it is newly built with a lot of work going on around the course . Fairways are very well designed and the greens are true and very well kept. The bunkers are very well placed and the quality of sand is excellent. I would say that the course is challenging and suitable for all handicaps with panoramic view of the wonderful southern coast, cradled amongst the mountains and lakes around Grand Bassin. It was a very pleasant to play with a cool breeze, not at all humid to play there due to its high altitude. Lovely practice putting green and other practice facilities.
The clubhouse is beautiful and very welcoming with lovely changing rooms. Pro shop is well equipped.
All the staff are very friendly and professional and very keen to help and nothing is too much for them.
I met the Golf Operation Manager, Jean Patrick, who was very friendly and welcoming.
Well done, for a new course with lot of potential .
I look forward to coming back and playing there again.

Dear Guest, Greetings from Avalon. Thank you for taking the time to review Avalon Golf Estate. We have to agree that our golf course is quite special even though it is only a few months old! The course has been designed to both challenge the experienced golfers and yet, be forgiving to the beginners. We look forward to seeing you on the fairways soon. Kind regards, Emma Taylor Golf Experience Manager

We joined the club on the proviso that they met certain conditions which would allow our children who are keen golfers to maximise the benefits of the club house and facilities.

Tennis lessons were promised along with other activities such as football which they have the facilities. However 6 months in we still have had nothing in terms of tennis or football.

Good lessons have been very intermittent due to the teacher being occupied with more pressing matters and sue to the very bad weather which obviously the club can not be responsible for.

Trying to get a response from any member of management seems impossible and we regret spending our money on such a club. Wish we had joined other surrounding clubs which may not be as new and luxurious but would have been much more worthwhile and value for money.

Peter Matkovich an Patrick Watson have made their marks in golf course design and landscape design. Peter is the most successful and acclaimed golf course designer in Africa and Mauritius. His Avalon Estate course may be the most scenic and user friendly of them all! When I was told that Patrick Watson was overseeing the landscape architecture, I knew we would be treated to a visual showpiece. Add the professionalism of Ryan Dodds and his team and it is a golfing experience of note! I loved the course, its playability and shot-making. The only thing you have to check is the weather!

My wife and I had the pleasure of playing at the opening of Avalon earlier this year, which was an awesome experience. The coarse itself is designed in true Matkovich high standards with some very cleverly designed holes that require the golfer to think carefully about his coarse management. The coarse certainly does offer reward for risk, but punishes you if you get too greedy.The staff at the facility were awesome, incredibly attentive and professional. If i have one drawback, that would be that the coarse is up in the mountains, and the weather there does play a part with high probability of wind and rain. All in all though, it is an awesome golf destination
