Golf de Limère

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

Est. 1992

Golf de Limère: This well-crafted Cabell Robinson design is located just south of the historic city of Orleans on the edge of the Sologne Forest. Without much elevation change and undulation, it's not the sort of course that gets the pulse racing too quickly, but it does lay down a good test of golf for your all-round game.

The layout occupies flat and mainly wooded terrain, where water presents a significant hazard at six or seven holes. Good course management will be needed, especially at holes like the seriously water defended par-4 18th, its green surrounded on three sides by water. Enough earth was moved during the construction phase to create some excellent bunkering and provide good definition to the holes, without interrupting the natural beauty of the site.

Although the course is fairly compact and doesn't stray too deeply into the surrounding forest, the holes do not unduly crowd each other. The mainly tree-lined fairways generally offer good width landing areas, although a few present a tighter proposition from the tee. The good quality greens come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including a real roller-coaster at the 9th. Limère is well worth a stop-over if you are heading further south in France, and with a hotel on site things couldn’t be easier.

Did you know?

Just a few kilometres from the golf course is the city of Orléans, which straddles the River Loire. In the city centre you'll find the impressive gothic-style cathedral of Orléans, which was built from 1278 to 1329. Joan of Arc, also known as "The Maid of Orléans," attended evening Mass in the cathedral in 1429, while in the city to lift the siege.

Located 24 km to the northeast, on the north side of the River Loire, is Golf de Limère's sister course ... Golf d'Orléans-Donnery, also with onsite accommodation. (Donnery is not covered in Where2Golf).
