Situated in the warm azure water of the Indian Ocean lies the beautiful tropical island of Mauritius, famous for its vast stretches of pristine white-beaches, and pleasant weather all year round which are perfect for a great golf holiday. Today golf is one of the top sports in Mauritius and one of the main attractions for visitors to the island.
