Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius, host of the European Senior Tour’s season-ending MCB Tour Championship, has become the latest addition to the exclusive European Tour Properties network after being announced as a European Tour Destination.

The stunning Indian Ocean resort is situated along a 2km stretch of beach and boasts two 18-hole golf courses, the Legend – which hosts the Senior Tour event – and the Links.

A range of luxury accommodation options, from suites to villas, are available for guests, with seven restaurants, seven bars, four swimming pools and a range of other activities also on offer.

Last year, legend Colin Montgomerie was victorious in the MCB Tour Championship, the three-time Senior Major Champion describing the resort as “truly one of the ultimate golf experiences in the southern hemisphere.”

David MacLaren, Head of European Tour Properties and recently appointed Head of European Senior Tour, said: “Today’s announcement of Constance Belle Mare Plage as our 22nd European Tour Destination represents a marquee moment in the evolution of European Tour Properties.

“The addition of a Member Venue within the spectacular setting of Mauritius extends the reach of our network of world class venues to another continent and I know that golfers from our other Destinations will be anxious to visit this beautiful resort.

“We are also delighted to build on an already successful relationship with Constance Belle Mare Plage which has, for the last seven seasons, proven to be an outstanding host to the Senior Tour’s season finale, the MCB Tour Championship.”

Jean-Jacques Vallet, CEO of Constance Hotels and Resorts, said: “2014 marked the 20th anniversary of Constance Hotels and Resorts hosting the first ever professional event in Mauritius and we are proud of our contribution in promoting the golf industry on the island.

“As such, it feels appropriate that our Legend and Links courses witness each year the conclusion of the Senior Tour season. Our golfing legacy and the quality of our courses are the main reasons why our unique week of golf continues to attract amateurs from across the world.

“We feel honoured today that Constance Belle Mare Plage becomes the European Tour Destination, in Mauritius. That encourages us to continuously improve our services and golf courses.”

Constance Belle Mare Plage follows Portuguese duo Tróia Resort and Bom Sucesso as the latest addition to the European Tour Properties network, and is the fifth new addition of 2016, with Lighthouse Golf & Spa Resort and Albatross Golf Resort also announced earlier in the year.
