Golfers holidaying in Mauritius will now be able to stay and play better thanks to the opening of the Indian Ocean’s first Golfzon Leadbetter Academy at Heritage Golf Club, the World Top 100 luxury golf and beach resort.
Founded by David Leadbetter, one of the greatest names in golf and coach to major champions including Sir Nick Faldo, Ernie Els and Lydia Ko, the new Golfzon Leadbetter Academy offers everyone – from elite players to absolute beginners – an opportunity to improve or learn the game.
The Academy, based at Le Château Golf Course, rated the #1 golf course in the Indian Ocean and venue of the DP World Tour’s AfrAsia Mauritius Open, will also offer Leadbetter Kids Golf, enabling children and families to experience world-class golf instruction during their stay.
Jonathan Menteath, General Manager of Heritage Golf Club, shares, “Our new Golfzon Leadbetter Academy, the first in Mauritius and the Indian Ocean, further strengthens Heritage Golf Club’s position as one of the most sought-after golf destinations in the world. For golfers traveling to Mauritius, including elite players, groups and families, we can now offer world class instruction, all year round. With a range of stay-and-play packages, including accommodation in our two five-star beach resorts and luxury villas, we look forward to welcoming all golfers who wish to improve or learn the game.”
The Academy’s package is Euro 450 for 5 lessons, including putting, chipping, pitching, bunker play and long game with video, Flightscope and 3D analysis.
David Leadbetter is regarded as one of the world’s premier golf instructors, having coached 26 major champions and seven world number one players.
There are now 40 Leadbetter Golf Academies in a global network that spans15 countries.
David Leadbetter said: “We welcome Heritage Golf Club to the network, our first Leadbetter Golf Academy in the Indian Ocean, and are excited to be working with such a prestigious golf destination on the beautiful island of Mauritius.”
“Our academies have produced many world class players, including elite juniors that have gone on to have successful professional careers. We have also helped thousands of amateur players enjoy the game of a lifetime – and that’s what we aim to achieve at Heritage Golf Club.”
Crafted along the southern shores of Mauritius, Heritage Golf Club is nestled within the 2,500-hectare UNESCO-protected Bel Ombre territory, enveloped by a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.
The destination features two superb five-star beach resorts: Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort and Heritage Awali Golf & Spa, a luxury, all-inclusive resort ideal for families.
Heritage Golf Club also offers a collection of private pool residences nestled amongst 2,500 hectares of unspoilt countryside. A second golf course, including expansive practice and academy amenities, will open in December 2023, making Heritage Golf Club the only 45-hole golf destination in the Indian Ocean.
