Est. 1992

Les Aisses Golf: Originally comprising the Bleu, Blanc and Rouge nines, the 27 holes at Les Aisses now split into the 18-hole Martin Hawtree-renovated Les Aisses course, and the nine-hole La Canne course (designed by the original 27-hole designer Olivier Brizon). All 27-holes occupy a splendidly natural setting of trees and lakes.

The original Blanc and Rouge nines combine to form the 18-hole Les Aisses course, with its distinctly heathland feel. The well-bunkered good-width fairways are frequently tree-lined, and often bordered by swathes of heather. Several pronounced dog-legging holes are to be found on the front-nine (the former Red-nine), with the par-5 6th and par-4 8th holes both bending around good-sized ponds. The greens here at Les Aisses, again well defended by bunkers, are generally large, quick and true.

Laid out in the southern section of the property, alongside the La Canne stream, the former Blue-nine (now the La Canne nine) presents the most watery challenge of the three nine-hole loops. Small lakes and ponds ensure the presence of water on virtually all the holes of La Canne.

On each of its contrasting nine-hole loops, Limere lays down a good challenge for golfers of all skill levels. It has been said the single-storey clubhouse is a bit on the basic side, while the standard of on-course maintenance can be variable.

Did you know?

Les Aisses Golf lies in the northern section of the expansive Solonge Forest, which is bounded by two rivers, the Loire to the north and Le Cher to the south. The famous Les Bordes Golf Club is also found on the northwest edge of the forest, as is the historic city of Orléans. The Solonge is noted for its many pools and marshes which are created due to the impermeability of its soil, a mixture of sand and clay.
