In an attempt to promote Mauritius as a golf destination in India, Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) recently organised ‘Mauritius Tourism Invitational Golf Tournaments’ in three metro cities of India, namely: Bangalore, Mumbai and Delhi NCR. MTPA organised this tournament in collaboration with IGTA, MGTA and Air Mauritius.
The events in all three cities were well attended by players, corporates, businessmen and senior persons from the travel industry and golf enthusiasts. The tournament had prizes in two handicap categories and one for the Best Gross Player. In addition to the nine main prize winners, there were lucky draw winners who walked away with half board couple stay vouchers by The LUX Collective, Heritage Resorts, Beachcomber Hotels and Sun Resorts.
Today golf is one of the top sports in Mauritius and one of the main attractions for visitors to the island. With perfect golfing weather year-round, superb accommodation and the world-renowned Mauritian hospitality, Mauritius is all set to rival the world’s best golf destinations.
MTPA India hosted the top three winners from each city for the finals in Mauritius at Heritage Golf Club on 31st May. The winner of Mauritius-India Golf Cup 2019 was Arjun Mallik and he was felicitated and awarded at the World Travel Award held in Mauritius on 1st June 2019.
“Mauritius, besides being an ideal round the year destination for the entire family, also boasts ten 18 hole golf courses, each offering a unique golfing experience,” said Vivek Anand, Country Manager - India, MTPA and added that MTPA plans to do more such events to attract more Indian golfers to the island.
