IAGTO 2015 AWARDS
Mauritius has been named Golf Destination of the Year for Africa, the Indian Ocean and Gulf States. This prestige award was presented at the 16th annual IAGTO (International Association of Golf Tour Operators) ceremony held in Tenerife. It’s the second time the award has gone to Mauritius, and the Indian Ocean island is growing in stature as a golf destination, with a wonderful choice of resort courses. The government has increased its promotion of golf tourism, and a new Peter Matkovich estate course, Avalon, is due to open in December on the west coast.
