This year’s winners from the Ladies European Tour will be invited to play in the 2006 Mauritius Open, an end-of-season festival of golf at the beautiful Constance Belle Mare Plage Hotel, which takes place from 15-17 December.
This unique 54-hole event will be made up of players from the European Tour, the Seniors Tour and the Ladies European Tour, with a separate women’s category with its own prize fund.
The Mauritius Open organisers have chosen to invite a total of 21 Ladies European Tour players to this year’s event, comprising the winners from the 2006 season with the remaining places to be filled by the leading players on the final New Star Money List.
Alexandra Armas, executive director of the Ladies European Tour, commented, “We are delighted to endorse the 2006 Mauritius Open and I am sure that the Ladies European Tour’s players will look forward to playing in the beautiful surroundings of the Constance Belle Mare Plage Resort.
“Over the last three years the Ladies European Tour’s players have enjoyed superb hospitality on the island and we have produced some top quality winners including Ludivine Kreutz of France, who won the women’s title in 2005, as well as Gwladys Nocera and Kirsty Taylor who won in 2004 and 2003.”
Since its inception in 1994, the Mauritius Open has been played by some of Europe’s top professionals including Constantino Rocca, Nick Dougherty and Ian Poulter as well as a number of selected amateurs.
Simon Clough, golf director at the Constance Belle Mare Plage Hotel said, “Constance Belle Mare Plage is delighted to be associating with the Ladies European Tour to invite all the winners from the 2006 season to participate in the Mauritius Open. Along with players from the Seniors and the regular European Tour, we have created a very special and unique tournament.
“We look forward to welcoming the Ladies and having them sample the delights of our hotel, golf courses and the legendary Mauritius hospitality.”
