Golf Club de Sept Fontaines (Le Chateau Course)

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1987

Golf Club de Sept Fontaines (Le Chateau Course): Of the two courses here at Sept Fontaines, Le Chateau is the bigger and more impressive layout, compared to the shorter La Foret course. The Chateau course is laid out over partly-wooded and partly-open parkland where many tight drives await, especially through the tree-lined sections of the course. Keeping the ball in play, out of the trees and avoiding the good quality bunkering is the main objective from the tee; the tightness of the course means there is limited room for water hazards - although don't rule them out completely.

Among many glorious holes, the 18th is a terrific risk-reward closing hole, with a carry over water onto the safety of the green - brilliant for settling any match plays that have lasted this far. This is a great layout on which to practice your course management skills and hone a game based on accuracy rather than length and power-driving. Spectacular as some of the holes may look in their undulating wooded environment (not least the wonderful downhill par-5 6th), beware - they are as tight as they look and a fraction less forgiving than you may think.
