Golf du Medoc - Chateaux, Par 72, 5720 metres
Classed among the top 15 golf courses in continental Europe, the third best golf course in France (from the Rolex Guide), the Golf du Medoc offers two superbly designed 18 hole courses.
The more challenging of the two is Les Chateaux, which is likened to a links course. It’s a relatively long course, with superb greens and plenty of hazards to challenge you.
Golf du Medoc - Les Vignes, Par 71, 5704 metres
The course is set in the typically regional landscape of moor and maritime pines. Suitable for players of all standards, the key to good play is accuracy and good club selection. Known for the difficulty of its greens, Les Vignes will bring out the best in your putting to secure a good score.
Grand Saint-Emilionnais Golf, Par 72, 5656 metres
This a stunning 5 star golf course located just an hour from Bordeaux and 6 miles from Saint Emilion. The course weaves its way through the stunning natural landscape with fairways that are lined by magnificent old oak trees and vineyards. Each hole flows beautifully from one to the next; a trademark of renowned course designer Tom Doak.
