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

Golf de la Grande Motte: The bustling seaside town of La Grande Motte is located on the western edge of the Petite Carmargue. Here golfers are provided with excellent facilities to improve their skills, and test themselves against an excellent quality championship course.

The 18-hole Flamants Roses (pink flamingos) course was designed by legendary golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones. It is complemented by the 18-hole par-58 Goelands (large seagulls) course and the Executive 9-hole Mouettes (smaller seagulls) course. The Flamants Roses is laid out on relatively flat terrain, set back from the sea, and has all the look and feel of a classic Florida resort course.

The relatively flat and open terrain of Flamants Roses has been nicely sculpted, mounded and bunkered to produce an attractive 18-hole challenge. It's certainly a cut above the average European resort course. As with most Florida-style layouts, there's plenty of water in play (but thankfully no alligators!). Many small lakes and ponds skirt the fairways and protect the greens. The pick of the par-3s is the 5th, a short hole played to a small well-bunkered green, surrounded on three sides by water.

Umbrella pines and poplars add good definition to several fairways, while holiday villas line a few holes on the perimeter. Most of the course is contained within its own very pleasant golfing environment, where maintenance standards are generally excellent.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
