Golf de Ganay: GOLF COURSES WERE PERMANENTLY CLOSED IN 2010.

[Original Where2Golf description]: At the doorstep of Les Bordes, are the 36-holes of Golf de Ganay, offering the opportunity for a less difficult golfing experience than is to be found 1km up the drive (at Les Bordes).

The Rouge/Bleu course starts in relatively open countryside. The trees here have yet to mature, and with an absence of water (except at the par-5 2nd), light bunkering and invitingly wide fairways, the chance to score well will never be better.

As the back-nine (the Bleu-nine) takes over you'll enter the woods and will need to take greater care of your line off the tee. With excellent greens the question on our minds was why the fairways and tee-boxes are not maintained at such a good level. A pleasant golfing venue, but low-handicappers will be left thirsting for some tougher challenges, which are not that far away.

The Jaune course, like the Rouge/Bleu starts in relatively open countryside; from the 3rd to the 7th you can take advantage of some of the widest fairways you'll ever experience - get that driver out and have some fun!

With relatively light bunkering and not too much water in play Ganay's Yellow course offers the chance to build a great early score. After the "easy opening" the fairways narrow (a bit) and the holes become tree-lined from the 9th onward. As with the slightly better Rouge/Bleu course, the greens are excellent, but the fairways really could do with some attention.
