History by Bob Latimer
This place is utterly without defence. The sole defences are two six and a half ton guns, and yet the War and other Ministers are perfectly content and wrapped up in their ignorance as happy as larks, with their flippant answers in the House of Commons. I have gone into the whole question of defence and put up a report, but I suppose it will be considered facetious.

GOLFReading Time: < 1 minute
THE GOLF EXPERIENCE
In 1844 Golf was introduced by the Officers of the British Military in Mauritius. It was played on the grounds of the military base at Vacoas, known today as the Mauritius Gymkhana Club (MGC).
The MGC golf course is 5.6 kilometres long and a par 68. Despite the fact that it is a relatively short course, it offers great challenges to the players. As it is very tight, precision and technical skills are called for. More interestingly, the MGC golf course is playable and enjoyable by golfers of all levels. The course comprises of 18 holes of which six holes of par 3, two holes of par 5 and finally ten holes of par 4. The shortest being hole No.5 playing 132 metres while the longest being hole No.6 playing 497 metres long. There is also a Night Driving range for those wanting to practise at late hours.
