Golf at two Chateaux near Bergerac, and stay at La Muscadelle. Get the best of both worlds.
Use La Muscadelle as your comfortable and economical base while you explore the golf courses of Bergerac.
Château des Vigiers is 20 minutes away, and in addition to other facilities, has three 9-hole courses and a 6-hole training course, designed by golf course architect Donald Steel, the Château itself playing its part as a superb backdrop to many of the views. 3 18-hole configurations are offered, with slopes between 125 and 129, through vistas of plum trees, oak woods and vineyards. The course design promotes quick play and accessibility for higher handicaps, but the greens are often very quick indeed, and when the pins are placed just so, the greens sharpened a little, and the rough allowed to grow a bit, the course is a challenge for any golfer. Ryder Cup team member, Per Ulrik Johansson, a member at Château des Vigiers, took 5 years to get his initial 75 down to the current course record of 66. There are competitions most Sundays in the season, and visitors are encouraged to join in.
Green fees vary from EUR55 to EUR75 per 18 holes depending on the season. Soft spikes only, no jeans or dogs.
The resident Pro offers lessons, and youngsters can play on the 6-hole training course for EUR10.
Château les Merles is also about 20 minutes away, and is a smaller 45 acre estate with a challenging and compact 3,300 yard par 35 course tucked away on the edge of the beautiful Liorac forest and the Bergerac vineyards. They claim the best greens in the region. Open all year round, there is a resident golf pro available by appointment, and with a driving range, pitching area, practice bunker and practice green, there is no excuse not to be warmed-up for your round.
Green fees for 18 holes vary from EUR42 to EUR46, juniors pay EUR25. Buggies, trolleys and clubs for hire.
