The AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open is a men's professional golf tournament, co-sanctioned by the European Tour, Sunshine Tour, and Asian Tour. It began in 2015 and was played at Heritage Golf Club in Bel-Ombre, Mauritius.[1] In 2016 and 2018 the tournament was held at the Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita, returning to Heritage Golf Club in 2017. The 2015 and 2016 events were played in May but in 2017 it was moved to December and was part of the 2018 European Tour schedule.

In the second round of the inaugural tournament in 2015, Spain's Javier Colomo made a hole-in-one the par-4 9th hole, the first par-four ace in the history of all three co-sanctioning tours. It was his final hole of the day, and he had needed birdie or better to make the cut.[2]
