Grand Saint-Emilionnais Golf Club

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2015

Grand Saint-Emilionnais Golf Club: Set on gently rolling terrain in the Bordeaux wine growing region of Saint-Émilion, this new Tom Doak design promises to become one of France's top golf experiences. Following the natural contours of the gently undulating terrain, the well-crafted course is set in a valley framed by oak trees and vineyards.

From the elevated clubhouse, you gain a panoramic view across the course. Historic buildings, rolling fairways, views of Gardegan village and the surrounding vineyards all create a rich rural scene. The mix of open linksy holes combine with others in a more tree-lined setting to lay down an excellent test of your golfing skills.

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).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
