In 10 years , Anahita has built an excellent reputation in the Golf world. Year long manicured course, breathtaking views and high-end infrastructures, everything to please golfers of all levels.
Anahita’s name is more and more cited in France’s clubhouses when it comes to mentioning once favorite golf course in Mauritius. An excellent reputation built in 10 years. This par 72 designed by the famous golfer, Ernie Els, boasts major assets.
The location is an undeniable asset of this splendid golf course. Nestled at the edge of Mauritius largest lagoon on the island’s east coast, Anahita has some of the Indian Ocean’s most wonderful holes. Namely tees 4 and 5, located on a green which seem to float on the turquoise lagoon. The 8 is also a memorable hole, remembered by the players who came to visit the course. And what about the 17 and 18th finish, where some golfers linger to take several photos to capture this magical place where green and blue mix with delight.
A most renowned track
Anahita does not only boast strong visual features. The golf course imagined by Ernie Els is a real challenge for whose who aspire to match his level. Whatever your level is, this track will know how to please you. Starting from tee times that match your level of play (Anahita has 4 men’s starts, 1 female start and a junior start on each hole), you will have the possibility of having green attacks with clubs not too closed. Indeed, if the face offs are not stressful at all at Anahita, the challenge occurs during the second stroke which will largely determine your score card. If you fail to put your ball on the green, doing Chip-putt turns out to be quite complex. Some players from the Afrasia Bank Mauritius Open, a tournament which counts in particular for the European circuit and which is played every two years at Anahita, can testify to this.
A high-end practice
Going to the driving range is not often a very pleasant moment for the vast majority of amateur golfers but at Anahita, this quickly turns into pleasure. The first small pleasure if to find a nice pyramid of clean balls. Secondly, being able to put on the grass which gives maximum sensations. Then there is the chipping green ! The driving range surrounded by palm trees gives it a tropical vibe, perfect for an encouraging atmosphere. This shall encourage you to reach the different targets positioned on the driving range. Once your big game is set, you can test your skill and your ability to tame Mauritian grass at the chipping-green. An important step to be able to save some parts on the course. Same applies at the putting green which will allow you to adapt well to the rolls of the Anahita greens, reputed to be quite rolling.
High end services

Halfway, take a break to enjoy a glass of iced tea and eat a cookie or two… A perfect way to gather some energy to complete the 18-holes. I you ever need to replenish your snack or drink stock once of the track, you will be able to do it by stopping the snack cart which crisscrosses Anahita’s fairways all day long.
