Diners Club® Pro-Am Classic 2016 at Mauritius

2016 marked the 25th anniversary of the Diners Club International® Pro-Am Classic, which took place on 28th November – 2nd December 2016 in the Republic of Mauritius. The island paradise of Mauritius, known for its bio-diverse marine environment, sapphire blue waters and fine dining was named the “2016 Golf Destination of the Year for the Africa, Gulf States and Indian Ocean region” at the annual International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) Awards. The island with such panoramic beauty and 5-star golf courses made the setting of the 25th anniversary of the Diners Club International Pro-Am Classic even more extraordinary. Diners Club® Clubmembers from around the world competed alongside golf professionals over three days on two of the most exceptional courses in Mauritius: the Four Seasons Golf Club and Île Aux Cerfs Golf Club.

This prestigious golfing event attracted some of the finest players from around the world. Diners Club® Pro-Am attendees were treated to four days of world-class dining and five-star accommodations at the incomparable Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita, a luxurious tropical resort in the heart of the Indian Ocean. The Pro-Am concluded with a Mauritian inspired gala dinner and awards ceremony to celebrate all participating teams and honor this year’s winners.

Diners Club franchises held local tournaments earlier this year, where the winners won the ultimate prize of representing their country in a two-day tournament. Each team included one professional and three amateur players. The tournament consisted of one practice round and competition rounds, played on two courses.

This year’s tournament included 15 teams from 11 franchises. Team Ecuador were the winners of the tournament, with Team Germany as the runner-up, followed by Team South Africa (Odds) in third place.
