AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open 2019: Course and current form stats for this week's tri-sanctioned event

AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open 2019: Heritage Golf Club
The undulating Heritage Golf Club enjoys many excellent views of the Indian Ocean

The European Tour remains in the southern hemisphere, pitching up at Heritage Golf Club for the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open. Words and stats supplied by Andy Swales ....

"Despite only playing his first professional event 18 months ago, Scotsman Calum Hill has raced up the World Ranking to No 115. He’s won three times on the Challenge Tour during 2019 and has looked pretty sharp during autumn."

The European Tour makes a 1,700-mile trip from South Africa to Mauritius for this week's tournament at the exotic Heritage Golf Club.

This will be the fifth staging of the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open and the third to be held at Heritage, following previous editions in 2015 and 2017.

As with these earlier events, the tournament is being tri-sanctioned by the tours of Europe, Asia and Southern Africa, and will feature a field of 156.

Opened in 2004, the course is located close to the south coast of this picturesque Indian Ocean island, around 16 miles from the Mauritian capital of Port Louis.

Laid out between the sea and the hills of the Black River Gorges Nature Reserve, the undulating Heritage course is shorter than the majority of Tour venues, although the presence of coastal breezes should prevent it from being a pushover at the hands of the longer hitters.

Heritage History

With a limited-course history available, there's not much to go on regarding past form.

Only three players posted top-20 finishes in both previous Mauritius Opens to have been staged here - George Coetzee, Justin Walters and Oliver Bekker.

Another South African, Justin Harding, is the only member of the world's top-75 taking part and arrives here following a tie-for-seventh at Leopard Creek on Sunday.

Rapid Rise

Despite only playing his first professional event 18 months ago, Scotsman Calum Hill has raced up the World Ranking to No 115.

He's won three times on the Challenge Tour during 2019 and has looked pretty sharp during autumn.

He finished 13th over the weekend in the Alfred Dunhill Championship at tricky Leopard Creek where not even winner Pablo Larrazabal could break 280 for 72 holes.

Born in Kirkaldy, the 25-year-old should feel comfortable teeing-up at this week's coastal location where he will be one of the top-10 highest-ranked golfers taking part.

Among the Europeans, the Belgians are out in force with Thomas Pieters, Thomas Detry and Nicolas Colsaerts potential contenders this weekend.

Pieters and Colsaerts have both triumphed on the European Tour this year - the latter ending a seven-year wait by winning the French Open - while Detry continues to make giant strides up the Ranking and is currently at a career-high No 136.

The 26-year-old tied-for-third at Sun City last month, having started the final round just one shot off the lead.
