Launch of AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open 2015

The AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open was launched today, 28th of August 2014, at the C Beach Club at Heritage Resorts on Domaine de Bel Ombre, becoming the first ever tri-sanctioned golf tournament endorsed by the Sunshine, European and Asian Tours.

The tournament, which is expected to draw top performing golfers from each of the three Tours, will be played at the Heritage Golf Club from 7 – 10 May, 2015. The golf club, recently ranked amongst the top-10 golf courses in Africa by global news broadcaster CNN, was chosen as the perfect venue for the three Tours to come together. The total prize fund of €1-million available to the professional golfers is the highest prize purse ever to be paid out for a tournament held in Mauritius.

“We are honoured to be the official sponsor of this first of its kind tri-sanctioned tournament in Mauritius and promoting golf as a key passion point. As a private and corporate bank, our aim is to be in line with supporting a sports partnership strategy that is aligned with business diversity and international presence, and the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open provides us with the unique opportunity to build on our sporting heritage while providing priceless experiences to our clients, and at the same time mapping Mauritius as a lifestyle, financial and logistics hub”, says James Benoit, CEO of AfrAsia Bank.
