A UNIQUE "ISLAND" GOLFING EXPERIENCE
The course covers 38 hectares on the northern half of the Ile Aux Cerfs island with the holes snaking up and down the length of the island, boasting natural undulating topography, volcanic rock outcrops, lakes and gullies, and a variety of tropical trees and plants.
All 18 holes have views of the ocean – some with glimpses across clearings through the trees; others by coming close to the shore. Expansive white sand bunkers and water set off the natural backdrop of trees and vegetation perfectly.
Water is an essential feature of the course. There are nine lakes in all, and three of the holes require tee shots across sea inlets to the fairways.
The luscious turf is Salam Seashore Paspalum grass, which is resilient in the tropical climate and allows the highest standards of course conditioning.
