Golf du Val de Sorne

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

Est. 1989

Golf du Val de Sorne: Occupying a wonderfully quiet and scenic location in the foothills of the Jura mountains, this challengingly laid out golf course will test and delight golfers of all abilities. At times demandingly tight, at others less so, the constant elevation changes create many elevated tees and greens, a few blind shots and immensely picturesque views onto the surrounding rural idyll.

Hugues Lambert has crafted many excellent holes, with precision driving required on several occasions. A mainly undulating and tree-lined front-nine, flattens out at the turn, with the par-5 10th, long par-3 11th and short par-4 12th played alongside the Sorne - more of a burbling stream than full-blooded river.

The layout's scenic climax comes after a demanding climb at the par-4 13th and long, uphill 14th. Known as the "hole of the four churches", the dog-legging par-5 14th gives you the chance to inspect local vineyards, count the churches on your way up and look out over the fabulous valley. The view on your way back down at the plunging par-3 15th and very testing, water defended par-4 16th is stunning - rural France at its best. The partly wooded hills are complemented by the neighbouring village of Moiron, which delightfully graces the backdrop on the closing stretch.

At over 6800 yards from the tips and with often smallish, circular greens, good greenside bunkering and a great collection of testing par-3s, Val de Sorne is well worth the stopover if you are in the area or travelling the Dijon-Lyon motorway, just 15 km away.

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 five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.
