Nampont St Martin Golf Club (Les Cygnes course): Les Cygnes is the longer, flatter and better of the two 18-hole courses here at Nampont. It will exact a good test of your game, based on accuracy and adept course management, as well as the ability to stay out of the ever-present water hazards and play four of the shortest par-3 holes on any "championship" layout. Your driver and sand-iron may feel a sense of redundancy by the end of the round - big-hitting is not the prime thought to have in mind here and the bunkering is very modest. With water coming into play on just about every hole, your primary task is to work out where the dry land is, then hit onto it. The par-4 second, for example, is one of a few "quirky" holes where carefully picking your way to the green is more a science than an art. This course provides a good walk through some wonderfully rural countryside, but from a golfing standpoint don't expect a world-beating layout or tip-top maintenance standards.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
