Tucked away in charming 140 hectare estate, just a short drive away from Auxerre, Domaine et Golf du Roncemay is a fantastic destination for a golf break in France. Charming accommodation, fantastic leisure facilities, excellent food and an enjoyable golf course are all on the menu and the setting is difficult to top. Any golfer looking to escape the pressures of everyday life should consider this venue for their next French golf holiday.
Since opening for play in 1989, this 18 hole Jean Garaialde designed layout has garnered a good reputation. Nestled in a stunning setting, much of the course has been routed through copses of mature oak, beech and birch trees, thus accuracy is paramount from the tee. The remaining 7 holes are played on the vast plateau that is reminiscent of traditional Scottish links land.
Measuring 6,856 yards from the tips, this course is long enough to offer a challenging round of golf to the big hitters while forward tees make it accessible to players with less experience. Although accuracy is key, a deft touch on and around the greens is also important. Undulating greens make three putting a distinct possibility but thanks to the ample practice facilities that include a practice putting green this should be too much of an issue.
Buggies and electric trolleys are both available upon request.
This hotel is a small country retreat but what it lacks in size it makes up for in intimacy and attentive service. Guests can enjoy 15 traditionally styled and well equipped rooms. Choose from a Junior Suite, Classic and Superior guestrooms, each of which come equipped with TV, direct dial telephone, complimentary WiFi and air-conditioning which will ensure maximum comfort.
Traditional French cuisine of the highest order is on offer at the on-site restaurant and golfers can enjoy a more relaxed buffet meal at the Golf Bistro. Fine wines are on offer as well.
After a long day on the fairways guests can make use of the fantastic on-site facilities including a traditional Moroccan hammam, outdoor swimming pool and a well equipped fitness studio.
