AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open


The AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open was nothing short of spectacular. What an honour it was to host the world’s best golfers at Heritage Golf Club. Our C Beach Club was unequivocally voted as the best players’ lounge on the European Tour and I’m pretty sure our golf course wasn’t far behind! The AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open week isn’t only about the golf though, in true Mauritian hospitality style, the week nights are filled with events that give you a taste of all that Mauritius has to offer. From beach front buffets at Le Palmier to elegant parties at Le Château to discos at the golf club, the week’s entertainment had it all.



The professionals were all business though and as the week went on the leaderboard was full of the who’s who of the European Tour. Louis Oosthuizen made a late charge but unfortunately ran in a bit of trouble on hole 16 which saw his chances fade. Louis De Jager and Romain Langasque were also looking good during the tournament but fell just short. In the end it came down to two, Dylan Frittelli and Arjun Atwal. Atwal led for most of the tournament and his experience told as he held onto that lead for 72 holes. Dylan Frittelli had a solid final round which saw both him and Atwal finish on a total of -16. On the first playoff hole Frittelli made a solid birdie to pip Atwal to the post and lift his 2nd European Tour title. Frittelli has since gone on to make it into the top 50 in the world rankings.



Heritage Golf Club Championship

Congratulations to Mike and Leigh Thackwray, our mother and son family members, who kept the men and ladies championship trophies well and truly in the family. Both played some superb golf and deserved the victories with Mike shooting 2 rounds in the 70’s on a championship layout. Leigh’s daughter Kim also played really well and won the ladies nett division. Our Ryan Dodds Nett trophy winner for the year was Richter van Niekerk. Congratulations to all of our champions!


A new category that we introduced this year was a matchplay division chosen from the top 8 nett qualifiers in the strokeplay rounds. After some fun but tough battles Louis Norval, a previous 3 time strokeplay champion and ex-springbok golfer, took the title with a 2&1 victory in the final over fellow Villa Owner and ex-Springbok golfer Richter van Niekerk. Congrats Louis!


• Mike Thackwray - Club Champion 78+77=155
• Leigh Thackwray – Ladies Club Champion 84+84=168
• Louis Norval – Matchplay Champion 2&1 winner
• Dave Strang – Stableford Champion Men 65 points
• Geraldine van Niekerk – Stableford Champion Ladies 62 Points
• Mark Kaplan – Best Overall Nett 156

Louis Oosthuizen visits Heritage Golf Club

It was our honour to welcome Major Champion and world number 22 golfer, Louis Oosthuizen, to our golf club in November. Louis spent some time with golf course designer Peter Matkovich on the site on which our 2nd golf course will be built. Nestled just below the Savannne Mountain Range and Frederica Nature Reserve, this new design promises to be something special. Sea views from almost every hole and a unique undulating golfing experience promise to make this course a must play. It will also mean that our Heritage Resorts Guests and Villa Owners have two championship golf courses on their door step. A golfing holiday just can’t get better than that.
