Golf du Médoc (Vignes course)

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

Est. 1991

Golf du Médoc (Vignes course): Not to be overshadowed by the resort's Châteaux course, Golf du Medoc's Les Vignes layout provides a contrasting, but no lesser golfing experience. Several holes on the "Vines" course are more tree-lined than on its more open and linksy companion. The Vine's fairways are a bit tighter, the bunkers bigger and the deep-rough looks closer to the fairway's edge.

Les Vignes, like its companion, occupies a wonderfully quiet and natural environment. The terrain is relatively flat and trees are more in evidence, complementing the layout's open "heathland" stretches. On the back-nine you play through what is left of an attractive pine forest, where accuracy in addition to length is required to score well. Picking the right line from the tee is also important at the par-4 8th and par-4 10th, played in opposite directions on either side of the same small lake.

With its excellent quality greens, Les Vignes offers a more tree-lined and technical challenge than the bigger dimension and more open Châteaux course. In addition to Golf du Médoc's two handsomely designed 18-hole courses, the resort also boasts excellent practice facilities, a 4-star onsite hotel, great cuisine and as much of the local wine as you can handle.
