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.

Stay&Play at Limère: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

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).

Published ranking

France's 32nd best course (Golf World, 2022).

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)
