Where2Golf says: 

Marriott St Pierre Hotel & CC (Old course): Laid out in relatively open parkland with some lightly wooded sections, the Old Course at St Pierre does an excellent job of combining golf's two vital ingredients. First, it offers a very pleasant environment in which to enjoy "a good walk", and while perambulating around its attractive parkland, the course lays down all manner of golfing challenges to test your game.

Small greens, big bunkers and an excellent standard of upkeep are much in evidence. On the front-nine the early elevated holes afford views onto the Bristol Channel and the two huge Severn estuary bridges. The back-nine contains some of the best and most memorable holes on the course: the 10th, 15th and 17th all providing a potentially watery end for misjudged approach shots to their respective greens. Top honours however go to the signature hole, the long par-3 18th. This most challenging of closing par-3s is played over water, with the St Pierre hotel and its small chapel-like church giving you a good target line.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
