Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Inside The Ropes -

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.
