Head for the Médoc, with its great wines and endless beaches. The 18-hole Margaux course winds through 45 hectares of forests and ponds, with lovely views over the estuary.
The Entre-Deux-Mers also has an 18-hole golf course in Cameyrac, with a particularly friendly atmosphere.
And, finally, the Graves & Sauternes golf club has a lovely, 18-hole course.
FOCUS ON THE GOLF DU MEDOC
Two courses. 36 holes. That means 36 different bottles of wine. You got it, each hole is sponsored by a different chateau. You will be spoilt for choice. Here you can combine the pleasure of wine-tasting and golf playing… now, that is the best of both worlds!
The Grand Prix Schweppes PGA, held here every year, gathers the best professional players, both male and female, from the entire country. Located to the north of Bordeaux, two courses are on offer: “Chateaux” designed by Bill Coore and “Vines” designed by Rod Whitman (Bill Coore’s assistant during the creation of the first course). The Chateaux course was allocated position number 15 out of 100 by Golf World for the best continental European golf course and the site itself was classified as France’s number one golf course in 2014.
The Golf du Médoc’s bonus point goes to its luxury package. We are talking about its four star hotel with 90 rooms and a spa with a heated swimming pool, hammam, sensorial shower and two massage rooms. There is also a seminar space and an ultra-modern training centre.
