Arcangues Golf Course 

Owned by the Arcangues family who have lived in region since 1170 and after whom the village is named, Arcangues golf course is a hilly course requiring considered strategy and a diversity of strokes. Even though the course itself is short, the bunkers and greens have been carefully thought-out, which is typical of its architect Ronald Fream, and makes Arcangues a true challenge. Several holes offer a panoramic view of the course and the Pyrenees mountains. Arcangues Golf Course is one of the most beautiful courses in the Basque country, with a clubhouse offering a typically warm and lively atmosphere.

Château des Vigiers Golf Course

Château des Vigiers golf course carves its way through the working plum orchards, vineyards, lake and oak woods surrounding the Château. The course is ideal for recreational golfing. The 9th and 18th holes present interesting challenges avoiding the water hazards on one side and the Château on the other.  Donald Steel, the course architect, considers the 18th hole one of the best he has ever designed, in terms of strategy and setting. In 2008, Château des Vigiers opened a new 9 hole layout, and now features 27 holes offering 3 combinations of 18 holes. 

Saint Emilion Golf Course

St Emilion Golf Course is a gem designed by Tom Doak, one of the best architects in the world (Cape Kidnappers, Barnboulge, Pacific Dunes).
The course unfolds in a valley fringed by centenary oak trees, framed by vineyards and located just 6 miles from the village of Saint Emilion. 
As with most Tom Doak designs, no earth was moved to create the Saint Emilion golf course, rather one hole follows another in the most natural flowing way.

Médoc Golf Course Les Vignes

Designed by Rod Whitman, Médoc les Vignes course is set in a typically regional landscape where the beauty of the moors and the maritime pines serve to enhance the architect’s design. The long par 5 holes have carefully designed greens, the judiciously placed bunkers call for precise strokes.
The ever changing landscape lanscapes and the delightful setting will meet the expectations of the most demanding players.

Fast greens, influence by winds from the Atlantic Ocean, and technicalities of the layout go to make this championship course a constant challenge. Médoc les Châteaux course is set in the heart of the wine area with each hole named after a Médoc top vintage.

Les Aisses Golf Course

Located in the heart of the Sologne forest, Les Aisses is a 27-hole international-class golf course set in magnificent oak, pine, and silver birch woods.

Although just 20 miles from Notre Dame cathedral in central Paris, you could easily be mistaken for thinking you are in Ireland playing on this blowy, Irish links desinged course. As a result of the challenging conditions, the Albatros is considered as one of the toughest courses in Europe where playing one’s handicap is a great performance.
