Set in 120 hectares of pine forest within a stone's throw of the biggest vineyards in Bordeaux, Pessac Golf Club has an excellent location close to Mérignac Airport, thirty minutes from the historic city centre of Bordeaux (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and Arcachon Bay. The Pessac course, which is rather flat, is carefully dotted with water hazards and well-designed holes. Try not to drop too many shots on the wide fairways because the greens are known throughout the region for their quality and twisty turns.
Delve into the depths of the countryside at Blue Green Bordeaux-Lac Golf Club, which is located to the north of Bordeaux, just a few miles from the city centre. The two eighteen-hole courses, Jalle and Etangs, provide a lush green setting where all golfers can come and recharge their batteries. With 36 vastly different holes, it will appeal to players of all levels. Not far from Route du Médoc, it's also an ideal stop-off for travelling golfers.
