Events at Beachcomber

Paradis Golf Challenge
01-06 July and 26-31 August 2019
The most exciting golfing event in Mauritius!

Beachcomber Tours South Africa organises two annual tournaments, uniquely marketed as family golfing holidays. In 2019 the events will take place 01 - 06 July and 26 - 31 August. Our Paradis Golf Challenge is so popular that 50% of the participants are repeat players, many of them women and juniors.

Make up a four-ball and one person will get their land arrangements free of charge. The winner of the tournament will receive free land arrangements, as well as an air ticket, to defend his/her title in the Challenge the following year, while the runner-up receives free accommodation for the next tournament. Golfers will be pleased to know that the Club House is situated only 100 metres from Paradis' reception area.

Non-golfing partners will be equally thrilled to know that the Paradis Golf Challenge is played in the mornings, leaving the afternoons open for leisure and family time.
