The Holiday Factory, together with Heritage Resorts and Mauritius Tourism, is proud to be a sponsor of Pierre Pellegrin. A real rising golf star, Pierre recently won the MCB Indian Ocean Open, qualifying for the AfrAsia Mauritius Open taking place in December 2022. We can’t wait to see how he does on the course.
But until then, he’s inspired us to travel all places green! If a golf holiday sounds like your cup of tee then be sure to check the below list of our favourite golf resorts in the Indian Ocean.
