Golf International de Grenoble Bresson: With the snowy Alps in full view at the first hole, you know you're in for some mountain golf (though not as high as you can play in the Alps). The undulations on the course can make it feel a bit like mountaineering if you are not too fit, so best to take a buggy (even if many of the locals do not).
Trent Jones' skillful earth mounding and bunkering has given some additional definition to some of the holes, although the tight tree-line (very tight at times) will leave you in no doubt where the right line is - just a question of getting the ball to behave itself and follow that line.
Impossible not to mention the views from the course - simply stunning. Whether you are looking up to the mountains, down into the valleys or across to Grenoble itself (at the tough par-5 9th) you will surely be taken in by the breathless beauty of these surroundings.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Players generally walk this course. Golf carts available for hire.
The ski station you can see from the early holes is Chamrousse, a favourite with Grenoble skiers (altitude 2526 metres).
