Leave the A10 at exit 15 (Meung s/Loire). Follow signs to Beaugency. After 10 km, in Beaugency, follow signs to Chateauroux / Limoges and cross the bridge over the River Loire at L'Abbaye Hotel. Immediately after bridge, turn right onto the D925 direction Chateauroux / Limoges. After 5 km Les Bordes is signposted on your left (and is a further 2 km along a private road).
Les Bordes Golf Club (New course): the second 18-hole course at Les Bordes, designed by American architect Gil Hanse, is laid out on the site of the former Ganay GC. The 7,391 yard (6,759 meters), Gil Hanse-designed New Course is inspired by the classical Surrey/Berkshire heathland courses.
As with the famed heathland courses found to the southwest of London, the layout here sits on sandy soil. It too plays hard and fast through heather, broom and century-old pine, chestnut, birch and oak trees. Wide playing corridors contrast with Les Borde's von Hagge-designed Old Course ... a much tougher and tighter proposition, carved through the Sologne forest. The Old Course is perennially rated amongst Europe’s elite.
Limited access: this is a private course generally playable only by members and their invited guests.
Private club - guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Players generally walk this course.
Future developments at Les Bordes envisage a Six Senses Hotel & Spa. It is anticipated that resort guests will have limited access to the 10-hole Wild Piglet course, but not necessarily to the two 18-hole Old and New courses.
In addition to the deer's head motif, the original Les Bordes logo bore the cross of St Hubert, the hunters' saint. At the 6th hole on the Old Course, an elegant stone cross marks the spot where the son of a former estate owner died in a riding accident.
Europe: 8th best course in continental Europe (Golf World, 2022).
World: 97th best course in the world (GOLF magazine, 2021/22).
There are plans for a Six Senses luxury hotel to open at Les Bordes.
