Le Touessrok Golf Course won the second place of the ‘Most popular golf course worldwide’ category. This award was officially remitted to Le Touessrok at CMT, the biggest German travel consumer show with 1 950 exhibitors from all over the world and more than 200 000 visitors. In the category ‘Most popular golf destination of the year’, Mauritius Island was voted at the first place.

During the 2008 festive season, Le Touessrok had the chance to host one of the most talented European golf players: Colin Montgomerie, often referred to by one of his nicknames, 'Monty'. Colin Montgomerie, while enjoying sunny holidays in Mauritius with his family, did take some time to play on Touessrok’s unique Golf Course located on Ile aux Cerfs. Monty also entertained guests at Le Touessrok during a very much appreciated golf clinic.

 

“I was really keen to come and play at Ile aux Cerfs Golf Course as my good friend Bernhard Langer told me about the pleasure you can derive from this unique golf course,” said Monty. During Colin Montgomerie’s golf clinic, everyone’s attention was focused on his famous swing which contributed in making of Monty one of the finest players in European Tour history, having won a record eight Order of Merit titles including a streak of seven consecutively from 1993 to 1999, and 31 European tour victories, placing him third on the all time list.

 

“I can but recommend but one thing: while playing golf, enjoy time, take time and you will find golf easier,” he advised an attentive audience during the golf clinic. Monty is renowned also for both his extraordinary Ryder Cup performances as well as the dubious distinction of being one of the most accomplished players never to have won a major championship after finishing runner-up on five occasions. His career high world ranking is second.
