Course Details

Course Name: La Grande Mare Holes: 18 Yardage: 5026 SSS: 66
La Grand Mare was designed by Hawtree is a deceptively difficult course, a quick look at the card does not reveal La Grand Mare's hidden hazards. Water plays an integral part in all but 3 of the holes. Accuracy of the tee is vital to ensure you have a chance of hitting the greens in regulation. The ever improving greens offer a big challenge, especially the far double greens which can leave you with a putt of over 45 yards.

The 17th, par 3 holes offers a great challenge, 266 yards over water.

    La Grande Mare Golf Course in Guernsey is a relatively new but continually evolving course which provides a challenge for all standards of golfer. It is based in a wetland site which has been managed to provide a balance between wildlife and wild hacker.
    The course features several short, but challenging, opening holes followed by a nightmare four hole 'Amen Corner' and a very challenging trip home amongst watery doglegs. The Conservatory Bar offers a very friendly welcome for all golfers, along with good snacks and Sky TV. The pro golf shop has recently been expanded in conjunction with the opening of the new health suite, which adds to the services offered by the excellent 'La Grande Mare Golf and Country Club'.
