    Best golf course on Mauritius
    My wife and myself played Avalon Golf Estate twice during our holiday on Mauritius. We played also other courses on Mauritius near Flic en Flac and also near Bel Ombre but the condition of the Avalon golf estate (tees, fairways and greens) were the best. No dry areas at all and the landscape around was fantastic. Futhermore there were not so much people playing (as on other courses) and we could start immediately. I would recommend everybody to play this beautiful course. When you are lucky you can also watch some monkeys on the second 9 holes.
    Dear Klaus Peter, Thank you for choosing Avalon Golf Estate for your golfing experience during your holiday in Mauritius! We're thrilled to hear that you and your wife played our course twice and found the conditions of the tees, fairways, and greens to be the best compared to other courses in the area. We're delighted that you enjoyed the tranquility of our course with fewer players, allowing you to start immediately. It's always a pleasure to provide a seamless and enjoyable golfing experience. Thank you for recommending Avalon Golf Estate, and we look forward to welcoming you back for more memorable rounds in the future. Best Regards, Avalon Golf Estate

    Visitors experience to Avalon
    A very well-maintained course with friendly and efficient staff. Having just endured a cyclone the quality of the course was very good, although quite wet in places. The only downside is that golf in Mauritius is very expensive for non -members or permanent residents.

    Wonderful Golfing Experience even in the Rain
    Avalon is wonderful Golf Club that should be on the bucket list, if you stay on south coast of Mauritius. It is a Peter Matkovich Signature Course and the layout is suitable for all skill levels. (my Index is 3) Even in the "Rainy Season" (around Feb/March) the course is in amazing condition. Greens running about 11 on stimp. I played 4 times in Feb2024 an d only time there was no rain drizzle. It gets windy up there, so make sure to bring enough balls and check the sand conditions in the bunkers. Make sure to choose the appropriate set of tees, as the course can require some longish carries at times. Tip: Early teetimes might be delayed due to fog in the mountains.

We visited Avalon for our end-of-year event, and while the facilities and venue were nice, we were disappointed by the staff's UNPROFESSIONALISM. We had a game included in our package, and it is only on-site that we were informed we couldn't participate without a prior reservation, information no one had communicated to us. Despite reaching out to a person named Ash on several occasions for instructions on how to proceed with reservations. When seeking an explanation, no staff member responsible of this could face us and provide explanations (except Tesha from F&B who had to go back and forth and see with the other incompetent staff! ) , forcing us to spend considerable time searching for assistance. We had to leave our staff and sit in the reception office waiting for someone to come for more than 30 mins to be finaly assisted!! Additionally, an arrogant guy provided a lackluster golf demonstration, treating us disrespectfully as if were 'bane sans compran' and stating the fact that HE pays millions to maintain the grass at Avalon. The discourteous and unprofessional staff certainly does not match Avalon's excellent infrastructure and amenities, leaving us disappointed despite an overall enjoyable day.

Additionally, food is average. The burger was dry, the pasta tasteless and the fish ok! The 'sorbet' was uneatable. The smoked chicken salad was the only thing that was delicious and the mocktails were nice! We were looking forward to spend an enjoyable time with the team and left Avalon DISAPPOINTED!

Food was OK but not great for the price. Took children to the play area outside - we were told we had to leave because they can only clean it when it's sunny, and that it's not safe when it's wet. I can't understand how you'd have a playground that can't be used if it's either raining or not raining.

Too expensive!
The golf is pleasant, the staff very friendly but if you are not a member, resident or Mauritian the prices are exorbitant. We paid more than 14,000 rupees or almost €300 for 2 green fees and a cart!

Our trip to Avalon was a particular experience. Me, my wife and some friends enjoyed the calmness of the environment under a coat of glittering stars.

Among outdoor barbecues and self- catered homemade delicacies, those moments are forever engraved in our minds. Far from the traffic of business life, it was an ideal location to escape from the mental pollution.

The villa was clean and tidy with all facilities on our side. Our host Amelie was very professional and understanding.

It is a must for a time far away from the cities and under the blanket of starry skies; A poet’s nest.

Best Regards,

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
