Golf de Moliets: Three distinctly different environments make up the well regarded layout at Moliets. A few holes skirt alongside small holiday homes and flats. The layout's best stretches are played through some gloriously pristine pine forest. If that didn’t provide enough variety, there are four links holes directly beside the sea.
With different habitats to play through and a few longish walks between holes, things could become a little disjointed. But legendary designer Robert Trent Jones Sr has crafted the right balance between variety and consistency, ensuring a wonderfully absorbing layout.
The greens at Moliets are fast and true, with impressive bunker defences around them. Compared to nearby Seignosse the layout here is more inviting for big hitters, as was appreciated by the European Challenge Tour's finest.
