The 18 hole course
Challenge and surprise await you in equal measure throughout this course that will amaze you with the diversity of its holes.
Undulating and technically challenging this 18-hole course was chosen for 13 years to host an international professional golf tournament on the Alps Tour where the world’s best golfers were able to pit themselves against the challenges of the course. Since 2017, this course has hosted an annual Pro-Am tournament bringing together about twenty teams, each composed of a professional and 3 amateurs. The exceptional landscapes with views over the Saint-Cyr lake make this an especially beautiful and popular course.
The 9 hole compact course
The 9-hole compact course, as distinct from the 18-hole course, will delight both beginners and more experienced players.
Easily played in 1 hour 40 minutes, this course with its par 3 and par 4 holes is perfect for beginners as well as being an excellent practice course.
Pitch and putt course
Ideal course for players in a hurry or who want to improve their approach play, it is open all year round.
The Pitch and Putt course is located on the 9-hole compact course, with teeing grounds closer to the holes on synthetic mats, identified by orange stakes. The maximum length of the holes on the Pitch and Putt course is 90 meters. You can play on this course quickly with only a few clubs. It proves popular with players who only have a limited time available to them.
