Although it is quite flat, the views of the iconic Mauritian coastline are unimaginably beautiful. There are a number of incredible moments around Langer's layout, where the intrepid golfer must negotiate carries over great ravines and rocky outcrops, but retaining concentration amid such natural beauty may be the biggest challenge. The golf course at Le Touessrok is world renowned for its positively amazing surroundings, and features prominently on the list of the most desirable on the planet.
Our very own Tom Francis - Overseas Sales Consultant played the Ill Aux Cerfs course, and here is what he had to say about the experience.
Ile aux Cerfs is probably the most unique golfing experience you can have. From the power boat to the island and buggy chauffeur to the clubhouse you know you are in for something very special.
The course itself is well laid out and all holes offer a different challenge. Most would be a "signature" hole on any other course! The small greens and tight fairways are demanding but a selection of tee boxes make it playable for everyone - and even if you lose as many balls as we did you can't help but enjoy the course that is placed in such a stunning setting, with glimpses of the Indian Ocean at every turn.
Why not make a day of it, take an early morning tee time, have lunch at the club house and spend the afternoon relaxing on the Islands idyllic beaches.
