Where2Golf says: 

Golf du Médoc (Les Châteaux course): Visiting one of the world's greatest wine-making regions is in itself a mouth-watering prospect. Add to that the opportunity to stay and play at the very impressive Golf du Médoc resort, and one can be forgiven for thinking the "planets have aligned". Home to the 18-hole Châteaux and Vignes courses, the resort also boasts a 4-star onsite hotel, great cuisine and as much of the local wine as you can handle.

In a delightfully natural, open and gently undulating environment, the Bill Coore designed Châteaux course exudes a distinctly "Scottish-links" character. In addition to an abundance of gorse bushes, natural looking bunkering and occasional ditches and water hazards, the course also contains artefacts with a more local flavour. With each hole named in honour of a great Bordeaux wine château, oversized wine bottles provide marker posts indicating 135 metres to the green.

The quality of the greens, the influence of the wind and the layout's technical difficulties ensures this championship course provides a top-quality golfing challenge. When you've finished, there's nowhere better to conduct your post-round deliberations than in the splendid clubhouse, with a bottle or two of the local produce.
