La Réserve Golf Links set for spectacular debut as new host of 2023 AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open
The magnificent new La Réserve Golf Links will make its international championship debut when it hosts the 2023 AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open from 14-17 December, opening its fairways to the leading professionals on the DP World Tour and Sunshine Tour.
As the first and only contemporary links in the Indian Ocean, co-designed by Major champion Louis Oosthuizen and Peter Matkovich, La Réserve Golf Links is the latest and most keenly anticipated offering in Heritage Resorts’ golf portfolio, offering an unparalleled experience of pure golfing drama.
The new course’s professional tournament debut coincides with the 2023 AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open now occupying an even more prominent place on the Sunshine Tour and DP World Tour schedules as part of a newly created Opening Swing of events that usher in the DP World Tour’s new season.
The AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open will be the final tournament on this Opening Swing, with La Réserve Golf Links set to be the stage where two champions are crowned in that week.
Beyond the winner of the tournament, the Opening Swing will also have its own Order of Merit with the leading professional at the conclusion thereof winning an extra $200 000 and, if already a member of the DP World Tour, an invitation into the DP World Tour’s next scheduled Rolex Series tournament as well as a spot in each of the DP World Tour’s Back Nine series of tournaments.
“The AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open is a source of tremendous national pride and mirrors AfrAsia Bank’s vision to not only affirm Mauritius’ status as a major international financial centre with a robust banking system, but also a vibrant epicentre to invest, work, live or retire. To partner this vision with the exciting news of a new host venue as acclaimed as La Réserve Golf Links reinforces our belief of doing what others said cannot be done, and connecting local possibilities for a global impact,” said Thierry Vallet, Founder Executive of AfrAsia Bank.
La Réserve Golf Links adds significantly to the already world-class golf offering in the south of Mauritius and on the renowned Bel Ombre estate, with Heritage Golf Club having hosted the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open on three previous occasions on its critically acclaimed Le Château Golf Course This new addition transforms Heritage Resorts into the only 45-hole golf destination in the Indian Ocean, establishing the south of the island as a true home of golf.
“The 2023 edition of the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open (ABMO) is set to be like no other,” said Thierry Montocchio, Executive Director and CEO of Rogers Hospitality. “Although we have previously hosted the event, the dramatic setting of La Réserve Golf Links promises to captivate players, viewers and spectators alike.
“Visitors to Heritage Resorts will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in our distinctive blend of luxury, sustainability, and the inherent beauty of Mauritius, assuring a memorable stay that’s both indulgent and enriching, be that on or off the golf course.”
