From 2nd – 7th December 2013, the participants in the fifth edition of the Standard Bank Mauritius Open will be staying at the 5-star Hôtel Long Beach.
On 26th June at a press conference at the registered office of Standard Bank (Mauritius) Limited, the organisers and key partners officially launched the fifth edition of the Standard Bank Mauritius Open. As Standard Bank (Mauritius) Limited is now renewing its commitment as the “Title Sponsor” for the fifth year in a row, Lakshman Bheenick, its Chief Executive, has declared that “Standard Bank (Mauritius) Limited is delighted to renew its association with the Mauritius Open, a major golfing event not to be missed. After five years, the sporting event has become a reference which helps advertise Mauritius as a top flight golfing destination”.
The Standard Bank Mauritius Open will be played on the mythical Le Touessrok Golf Course, located on the sublime Île aux Cerfs. “We are going to bring another dimension to the Standard Bank Mauritius Open 2013 by increasing the quality of the Île aux Cerfs course and its facilities, and modifying some of the holes, which will be reviewed”, says Nicolas de Chalain, Sun Resorts group Chief Sales Officer and Tournament Director. Accordingly, as in previous editions, nearly thirty local and foreign Pros are expected for the competition and Amateur players will have the opportunity to meet them at the Long Beach & Air Mauritius Pro Am on 2nd and 3rd December.
The Standard Bank Mauritius Open draws many foreign players, including several well-known Pros, and this year is expecting rather over a hundred players. Following in the footsteps of Gary Wolstenholme, the winner of the last edition, who has already confirmed that he will be present to defend his title, Pro players will especially enjoy the chance to play on the exceptional course at the Le Touessrok on the Île aux Cerfs. They are not oblivious of the welcome which awaits them at these reputable hotels, including the Le Touessrok and the 5-star Hôtel Long Beach and it is a great pleasure tp host them again this year !
