Course Details

Course Name: Albatross Holes: 18 Yardage: SSS:
Designer:- Hubert Chesneau, Type Stadium Links
A stadium links course featuring several water hazards ,make the Albatross a stern test from the back tees. From the forward tess, the player must position the tee shot on the correct side of the fairway in order to leave themselves the best approach. A good example of this is the 15th hole, where a tee shot aimed away from the water on the right hand side can result in a four club difference for the second shot, which incidentally is to an island green!

For an appreciation and independent view of this course please see golfer reviews.

Course Name: Aigle Holes: 18 Yardage: 6494 SSS:
Designer:- Hubert Chesneau, Type:- Inland Links
Although not unduly long, the Aigle course presents its own problems due to the terrain. Although accuracy from the tee is not essential, a premium is placed on good, accurate iron play to small, well defended greens.

  • Aigyle and Albatros courses Golf National

    I Have just played these two courses and found that both course were excelent but not the best I have played in France. The aigyle is obviously designed to be links like and set up for visitors. Very little rough.
    The main course the Albatros was a links like course with a few American type holes with sleeperd walled greens surounded by water. The greens are enormous and two sometimes three clubs diffence from front to back. The course obviously designed for Televised golf tournaments.
