The first course open on the Island was the Belle Mare Plage Legend Championship course in 1994 and this favourite venue now houses a further course with the addition of the Links in 2002. Both courses are excellent layouts and offer a challenging round of golf in stunning surroundings with water featuring heavily on the Legend course.
The new Ernie Els course and the Anahita World Class Sanctuary is a fantastic new layout and is already being talked of as one of the world’s great destinations with perhaps the most beautiful holes to be found anywhere. Sweeping round the coastline to a point and then back along the ocean to the clubhouse it is a dramatic finish.
