The time at the Mauritius Open went well! It was the second week of the new 2019 European Tour season.
The Four Seasons Golf Club resort was stunning – hugging the incredible coastline at certain holes.
Mauritius is a place of contrasts though, in terms of living conditions. Away from the plush resorts there are much needier parts, so driving to the golf course you would go through some under-developed places with lots of stray dogs walking about on the roads.
There was more work than usual to do with the players’ golf equipment survey, because it’s the start of a new season. But there was still opportunities to spend time with a lot of players and caddies away from that.
I walked part of the back nine with one christian player, and we were able to discuss how he was handling the pressures of the game, applying some passages of the Bible to how he was feeling. I was able to have a good chat over breakfast with one of the other christian players, then had a good Bible study in 1 Samuel with a couple of the christian caddies.
There were plenty opportunities to have chats with other players and caddies on the Tour as well, with each one helping build relationships.
Mauritius was the last abroad trip of 2018 for me, so let me take this chance to say a sincere thanks for your interest and support throughout 2018.
Bye for now, Kenny
