GOLF DE VAL QUEVEN

Enfurled in the pastoral heartland of Brittany, Val Queven is more about la terre than la mer.  The course rises and falls across what were once open pastures and arable land and has a great sense of space about the course.  The course plays to it's full length as Fairway grasses are generally kept quite long, so plenty of unreserved driver flexing will be required.  Another feature of Val Queven is the vast acreage of Greens with plenty of borrow.  Unless you possess a set of laser-guided irons, you are more than likely to have some memorable putts at Val Queven.    Website >>

GREEN L'ODET

Close to the seaside resort of Benodet, Odet is an inland course that invites judicious use of the driver to conquer its longer holes (and there are some). The course is on fairly level terrain that wanders in and out through the ancient woods and stone walls that once divided the land in this part of Brittany. There is a good variety of holes and water creeps in here and there to keep you on your toes. Another feature are the Fairway hummocks that are apparently natural but can provide an interesting twist of fate to your Tee-shots and make for some semi-blind approaches. That said, Odet is generally an even-handed course where good play will get you a good score. --Website

GOLF DE SAINT LAURENT
This classic parkland course has twice hosted the French P.G.A. Championship. The front nine has the most interesting and testing holes with slightly wider Fairways and some water coming into play on holes six & seven. The back nine has some gentle slopes and narrower Fairways with a few dog legs that demand accurate driving.

We would strongly recommend considering the nine-hole course too, which has arguably the most interesting set of holes at St. Laurent. If you like, we can always request the front nine and the nine-hole course for your day at St. Laurent. Or better still, stay for a good lunch and then take it on as a digestif? -- Website

BADEN

One of the favourite courses in France for the sheer variety of golfing challenges and landscapes that confronts the golfer at Baden. From the first hole that falls away from the Clubhouse down to the the Gulf of Morbihan to long last hole between the sand and pines back up to the Clubhouse, the course is hard to fault. A few gentle slopes but very walkable (buggies are available if required). One not to miss if you are in Brittany!  Website

GOLF DE RIMAISION

The 9 hole golf course of Rimaison and the existing facilities were created at the beginning of the 1990s in the region of Pontivy, in the commune of Bieuzy les Eaux by Messieurs Paul CORFIELD and Steve GALLIER, in a wooded and undulating course.
Its exceptional position on the ruins of the old castle of Rimaison in the Blavet Valley make it a remarkable site because of its position and its difference compared to other golfs in Brittany.
