20 km north-west of Bordeaux, the Golf du Médoc Resort offers two golf courses recognised amongst the most beautiful in Europe, as well as an outstanding Hotel and Spa to relax in.
Hotel & Spa – MGallery by Sofitel :
The hotel & Spa opens onto the golf courses. The 25m² bedrooms are bright with modern décor and have a ‘MyBed’ bed design and a bathroom with shower. Wi-Fi and access to the Spa (heated indoor swimming pool, fitness room, steam room) included. The perfect way to relax, and contemplate your round of golf.
Restaurant “club” :
Enjoy a relaxing moment in the restaurant or on the terrace overlooking the Châteaux course, the restaurant offers original menus with daily specials, buffet style and à la carte to both golfers and non-golfers alike.
For those wanting to enjoy the delights of the area the club has an extensive, reasonably priced, choice of Medoc wine. (The abuse of alcohol is dangerous for health but also for your swing!)
The Châteaux Course :
This Par 71, 6571 metres course, designed by the American Bill Coore in 1989, and was voted ‘Best Golf Course’ in France in 2014 by the World Golf Awards. It adheres to the purest tradition of the Scottish ‘links’. The wide fairways bordered by heathers, gorses and brooms as well as the quality of the greens make this a magnificent course set in unspoiled nature.
The Vignes Course :
This Par 71, 6237 metres course, designed by the Canadian Rod Whitman in 1991, is embedded in a landscape typical of the region, where the aesthetics of the heath and the maritime pines enrich the architect’s design. The long pars punctuated by elaborate greens and the judiciously placed obstacles demand thought and precision from the player. The great diversity of situations of play, the quality of the course and the charm of its setting will satisfy the needs of even the most demanding of golfers.
20 km north-west of Bordeaux, discover ‘la cité du vin’ the wine city, (a 3,000 m² wine exhibition), ‘le miroir d’eau’ (the world’s largest reflecting pool) in front of the Place de la Bourse, the Saint-Pierre district in the historic heart of Bordeaux or walk through the ‘l’entrepôt Lainé’ (an old customs depot) to discover one of the richest collections of contemporary art in France.
For those who appreciate vineyards, Pian Médoc is only 10 kilometres from the famous Chateau Margaux Estate. The vast Castle Estate dates back from the 18th century. A visit to the Estate with its beautifully maintained gardens is a must. Booking in advanced is required, please contact SVM Golf-Travel team who will be able to organise this for you.
