Very hilly - but nice to play
5.0 of 5 starsReviewed August 3, 2018
On 01.08.18 I played an 18-hole round there.
Nestled in a very hilly landscape on the edge of the Massif Central is the 18-hole course with a 6-hole training course.
The course is very demanding and exhausting, although it only has a slope of 127 - also in terms of condition. Here it is always steeply up or down again.
There is little water, but very sloping fairways - a novelty for me. You have to play these like water or biotopes, sometimes with more than 100m carry (or just looking for the ball in the slope).
The second 9-holes then accompanied me a local expert and pointed out the problematic points.
Unfortunately, due to time constraints, I was only able to go around once, and on the second lap I would have fallen for the problematic areas more.
Reductions and greens were great, the Faiways Due to the heat rather brown. The bunkers were OK.
So, make a note: plan your time and play the course twice.
The resto in the clubhouse was also very accommodating to present me a nice salad outside the normal mealtime after the round.
