Le Golf de la Bresse

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1990

Le Golf de la Bresse is home to a course where you can enjoy a wonderfully natural and pleasantly scenic round, surrounded by the area's rich tapestry of woodland and agricultural countryside. Laid out on flattish terrain, this generally well-maintained golf course does much to mirror the natural landscape.

At times quite open, at others more wooded, you'll not be bothered by either housing or traffic as you manage your way around a course that is not without its challenges. The good-width, well-bunkered fairways on the front-nine, give way to some tighter and more tree-lined challenges on the second nine-hole loop, not least at the par-5 18th, played down an avenue of mature oaks towards the attractive, single-storey clubhouse.

The excellent quality greens here are never overly large, but are stoutly defended by expansive, shallow bunkers. Although there is only one sizable pond to contend with (at the 11th and 12th), water does play its part, either skirting alongside some of the fairways, or providing an infill between tee and green at the par-3 5th and 12th holes. The other two par-3s, at 8 and 16, are longer and demand precision shots to find the well-defended putting surfaces.

In this tranquil, rural idyll, the only interruptions you may encounter are occasional outbursts from the resident gallery of ducks and pheasants, and any of your own exclamations when accuracy is lacking on this fair and well-laid out course.

Did you know?

Located on the south-western edge of the Jura mountains, the Bresse area surrounding the city of Bourg-en-Bresse is perhaps best known for the production of two food products. Poulet de Bresse is a breed of chicken renowned for its rich, gamey depth of flavour. Equally well-known in French gastronomy, and first produced just after World War II, is the soft, blue cheese, known as Bresse Bleu.

Tournaments

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.
