    Inclusive golf club
    My husband and son played the short course while I tagged along! I did have a go at putting. The staff were exceptionally friendly especially Saroj the Manager. We were not made to feel out of place even though we are not ardent golfers. Saroj even arranged for us to tour the new golf course being built which was something amazing. Anish was our guide and explained in great detail the vision and where each hole would be. A massive thank you to all the staff and a special mention to Hema whom I had a great laugh with. Special people who deserve a mention.
    Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your encouraging review. We do indeed make a big effort to make all golfers of all levels feel welcome at Le Chateau Golf Course. Our Academy course is ideal for those learning the game as our practice facilities. Welome to the wonderful game of golf and we hope to accompany you and your family further on your golfing journey. Kind Regards, Jonathan

    Beautiful, challenging golf course.
    Beautiful, challenging golf course. Service is very good from golf staff especially Suraj who us in charge of golf operations. He was fantastic. Unfortunately the staff in the pro shop need some lessons in friendliness and good service. One of the ladies in particular was quite rude. Pity! Overall a fabulous course to visit and play.
    Dear Golfer, I am glad to read that you found our course to be both beautiful and challenging. Have you played our new course La reserve Golf Links yet? If not please do visit us again as it too has amazing panoramic views of the Ocean and a dramatic design. Thanks very much for your compliments regarding our service and in particular Sooraj, he is a fantastic manager. On the other hand I am sorry to read about your interaction with our shop and I will ensure they are made aware of your experience. We hope to welcome you back soon and thank you for playing Le Chateau Golf Course. Best Golfing regards, Jonathan

    Excellent course
    Le Chateau Golf Course (as it is now known) has always been in excellent condition throughout the 9 years (less Covid) that we have been coming. Always immaculately presented with excellent greens and a challenge to most club golfers. Hole management is the key. Don't bite off more than you can chew!!!!!! Carts are available or if you wish to walk there are trolleys as well. Full length driving range. Nice clubhouse overlooking the 18th green which has recently changed their menus and there is a really good choice of food. You can dine there in the evening too. Pleasant and helpful staff throughout. Bag storage available. Proshop has nice clothing with logos but it is expensive because of import duties, etc. Free transport available to/from Awali and Le Telfair. Expect it to be breezy everyday which makes some holes play long.
    Dear Mike, As always it was our pleasure to welcome you back to Le Chateau Golf Course. Your advice for fellow golfers is spot on and we can't wait to see you again for your next golfing holiday which will include the dramatic La reserve Golf Links. All the best, Jonathan

    A great course and experience! But felt rushed sometimes!
    A great experience! I had the chance to play the course with a member and friend. A lovely course and welcome. Thank you! In addition, I would like to suggest that more time be given between flights and that two balls be sent to the 10th. We had to rush and wait and make teams wait a few times (not that often though!). Also, it would be great if the Links course was playable for non-hotel dwellers and not at an added cost. The greens, fairways and rough were all great! The pro shop shirts seemed overpriced but maybe that is the quality we are getting? 200 USD for a golf shirt seems high. One more tip, maybe ask golf cart users to drive on the rough and then enter the fairway only at the level their ball is? To keep the grass looking great. In any case, I highly recommend the course for others. Everyone was so friendly and helpful 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 Well done 👍

We have been playing Le Chateau Golf Course since 2013 whilst we have been staying at Le Telfair (with the exception of the Covid years). The course is a challenge for most golfers and requires more course management than you may think. The Par 3's are all particularly challenging and require the correct club selection. Holes 4 and 17 are particularly difficult. For the long hitters there are risk and reward holes but if you think your way around you can score well. The greens are quite 'grainy' so you need to take some care and many break far more than they may look. Holes 3 and 4 are particularly difficult.
The golf course is always very well maintained with nicely raked bunkers. The sand is quite heavy especially if wet.
The Club House (overlooking the final green) has a good selection of wines and beers and the food is always good with snacks or meals. The staff are always very friendly, courteous and friendly.
Clean and well serviced restrooms.
Driving range.
Helpful and courteous staff in the Proshop and clothing, though whilst expensive, is very good quality and some really nice colours and designs.
Caddymaster and his staff take care of your cart and clubs. You can leave them at the store or take them to your room when using the shuttle bus to either Awali or Le Telfair.
All in all the course deserves to be No. 1 in the Indian Ocean and even if you don't play well you can still enjoy the experience.
Depending on your package golf and carts plus drinks may be included.

Heritage GC is without a doubt one of my favorite golf courses I have had the privilege of playing. I have hosted several golf groups at this facility and Jonathan Menteath (General Manager) of Heritage always ensured that the golf experience from start to finish was flawless and consistent in every way. Their attention to detail on and off the course stood out for me and I cannot wait to return to my favorite holiday destination. Without doubt this should be on everyone's bucket list. Keep up the great work, you guys rock!

Would have been 5 out of 5 except for the fact that I was not offered local water at the restaurant for lunch and had to pay Rs300 for a very expensive imported water. The bill mentioned Evian but the water served was another imported brand.
The competition was well organized and played on a magnificent golf course that is always kept in tip top condition. Hope to come back soon.

1) Beautiful beyond compare - truly an amazing island course
2) Classic Peter Matkovich design - a proper championship golf course

From the moment you enter the premises, you are greeted and your golf bag is removed from your car. Very friendly and courteous staff from the bag collector to the golf manager.
Lovely course where you will enjoy your round with some stunning views, beautiful fairways and fast greens.
The restaurant staff are also very caring and looks after the guests very well.
A must play course when visiting Mauritius!
