Loire Valley Golf Courses near Manoir de la Pigeonnerie
Anjou Golf & Country Club near Champigné (NGF Golf d’Anjou)
Passing through undulating countryside, yet flatter than many courses in the Loire Valley; the Anjou Golf & Country Club course offers something for everyone. It is trickier than it first appears (especially the back nine), with several water hazards.
The course at Golf d’ Anjou is quite long – many greens are hidden behind large trees. There are plenty of bunkers to overcome, but on the whole, these are well shaped and fair to play from. The fairways are good, the greens are well maintained & true, but the rough can be challenging!
Golf de Laval-Change
Golf de Laval offers interesting terrain, with wide fairways and American style bunkers.
Not as intimidating as it first appears, this golf course is nevertheless a challenge, and there are several slopes that may prove difficult to read. Due to the terrain, you may require a buggy if your stamina levels are dwindling! Recently, more and more guests have rated Golf de Laval as their preferred course.
Golf d’ Avrillé, near the town of Angers is set in botanical gardens, with many different species of tree. This golf course has well defended greens, lots of water, and some tricky dog legs.
Fairly flat, the course is an easy walk, but the golf gets more difficult as you progress.
Beware the huge bunkers on the 17th and 18th holes.
The clubhouse is located in the refurbished 17th century Chateau de la Perriere and makes a superb backdrop as you approach the 18th.
Golf de Sablé-Solesmes
Sablé-Solesmes golf course is both stimulating and challenging.
The club claims to offer golfing heaven, and who are we to disagree! The clubhouse and facilities are unrivalled. This modern course is well manicured, with long rolling fairways and many water hazards over the three 9 hole courses, (“Forest“, “River” and “Cascade”) which can be linked for variety.
The “Riviere” course is in an American style, with steep inclines and plenty of water to overcome. Accuracy is needed, and there are some spectacular views.
“La forêt” is long & open… probably the easiest of the three to play.
Finally, “Cascade” resembles a Scottish links course. Quite hilly in parts, it has lots of bunkers to take into consideration.
Golf de Baugé
The unique setup at Golf de Baugé has been described as sensational, and is definitely for the energetic. In an area full of great courses, this one is highly rated and not to be missed.
The golf course is generally kept in beautiful condition throughout the year. Most holes are completely surrounded by natural forest & there are no “straightforward” holes. There are some long walks between green and tee, plus the 16th has a particularly steep slope, so a buggy may be helpful if your legs are tiring!
Golf des Rochers-Sevigné
Golf des Rochers-Sevigné, near the mediaeval walled city of Vitré (well worth a visit) is a friendly golf course in a site with strong historical context (surrounding the 17th century chateau which is pictured below).
Valleys, woods and hundred year old oak trees accompany a winding river that the player will negotiate along the way. Well balanced, well maintained and quite technical, although the fairways are tolerant enough.
