Autumn golfing holidays

Although the golfing season is coming to an end in the UK, there are still plenty of holes to pot on courses nearer the equator. Maybe you’re slipping under par and your handicap leaves you struggling to pot a hole in one? Autumn could be the perfect opportunity to brush up on lost techniques.

For a luxury golfing holiday stay at the exclusive Heritage le Talfiar golf & spa resort located on the former sugar estate of Bel Ombre, which adjoins one of the most pristine stretches of beach on the island of Mauritius.

Get yourself back to competitive standards with the resort’s magnificent 18-hole champion golf course ‘Golf du Château’. The course was designed by renowned architect Peter Matkovich and stretches out over 100 hectares taking in lakes, streams and tropical flora.

The championship course (par 72) is a good test for the accomplished golfer and user-friendly for a higher handicapper, with opportunities to improve technique and know-how.

Once you’re too tired to pot another ball, the resort’s Seven Colours Spa offers massage to treat golfers’ injuries and a full menu of beauty treatments. To top this off, luxury holidays taken here include the service of personal butlers who are on hand to attend to your every need from the comfort of your suite. Visit for further information and to check availability.

For golfing holidays with family and friends, a Florida villa with free car hire may be a more cost effective option and you can take advantage of the many excellent golf courses throughout this sunshine state. Orlando and the Gulf Coast are packed with top-end courses, and are only a short drive from the Universal Orlando Resort - keeping both children and grandchildren entertained!
