The highly anticipated La Réserve Golf Links at Heritage Golf Club, Mauritius, officially opens for play days ahead of the co-sanctioned DP World Tour and Sunshine Tour AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open, December 14-17, where the golf course’s co-designer and former Open Champion, Louis Oosthuizen, will compete.

Louis, who won the 2010 Open at St Andrews designed what is the Indian Ocean’s first and only contemporary links course alongside acclaimed course architect, Peter Matkovich. Using the natural landscape and dramatic elevations to define each hole, he said: “My love of links, the purest form of golf, will be experienced on every hole at La Réserve Golf Links. 

“I have a genuine passion for links golf and the way in which you have to strategically work your way around a golf course using a multitude of different shots. Links golf challenges your mind, and your game and that is why La Réserve Golf Links is such a wonderful project to be at the heart of.”

Inspired by the wild open spaces of the great seaside links, La Réserve Golf Links, a GEO-Certified development, plays hand-in-hand with nature, nestling alongside a UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve.

This will be Oosthuizen’s second appearance in the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open following his seventh-place finish in 2017.
