Where2Golf says: 

Les Bordes Golf Estate: The friendship between Baron Bich (founder of Bic pens) and Yoshiaki Sakurai of Japan, provided the vision for a top-quality Stay&Play golf facility within easy reach of Paris. The resulting Robert von Hagge designed golf course at Les Bordes quickly became one of the jewels in France's golfing crown. Alas the club has now closed its doors to outside visitors, and is operated exclusively as a members-only facility.

The course at Les Bordes lies in a natural and serenely peaceful area of woodland near Orleans in the Loire Valley. Though the terrain is relatively flat (making the appearance of so many buggies rather curious), von Hagge has conjured up variety at every turn. With its mix of woodland and more open aspects, tight lines from the tee and abundance of water, this is certainly a course that lays down a thorough golfing challenge. Two of the water defended holes, the par-5 7th and par-5 14th are superb. The 10th, without water, is also a memorable par-5, played to an elevated green.

If you like a good golfing challenge and want to share a few hours with the resident wildlife (including deer, koypu, water fowl, eagles, etc) there are few better places in France than Les Bordes - but as of 2009, you'll need to be invited by a member to play.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
