Château des Vigiers Golf & Country Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1991

Château des Vigiers Golf & Country Club: Sitting at the heart of this 27-hole Donald Steel design, is the wonderful 16th century Château des Vigiers. The course wraps around the château as well as journeying out into the famous vineyards of the unspoiled Dordogne Périgord region.

This tree-lined and open parkland layout, comprising the Valley (Vallee), Lake (Lac) and Vines (Vignes) nines, should not disappoint. In its peaceful and scenic setting, the three nine-hole loops meander through plum trees, oak woods, lakes and vineyards, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.

Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted design. At this Stay&Play venue, the on-site accommodations are located alongside the golf facilities, as are the Château's superb restaurant and brasserie facilities.
