I have just come back from 2 days playing in the Poitou Charentes Cup at Royan. It was my first time there and overall I was very impressed with the course. The front and back nine are quite different and I would endorse most of the comments previously written here. One bum note is the awful 13th. Its a hole which punished good shots time after time and this was from my fellow competitors as well as me. All of us play of 0 to 5 so it wasnt as we were duffers.
18th is a wonderful finishing hole right in front of the clubhouse gallery. Fine course, despite the 13th and well worth the green fee - if you have to pay it :-)
just got back,played in august 06,course is a must if you are in the area.the cousre played quite long as most evennings there were heavy showers.every hole is tree lined so leave the driver in the boot,greens were very receptive and were a joy to putt on.notable holes 5 @ 12,i had a great day and played to 4.
This is a MUST play if you're in the area. The best Greens I have ever seen....course its self is fair, quite wide fairways, then tall pines, so you can easily find a stray ball (though practise your chipping out sidewayds !!). An for £32 it's a bargain....visitors can only book 1 day in advance, and book early. Clubhouse, catering great - with the bar overlooking the 18th green, which is guarded by a pond..great fun to watch ! But like I said at the start - the greens are the real star of this course, quick and true, if you can't putt on these, get your clubs on E-bay !!
A very good golf course with some extremely testing holes. The course is undulating in places but this all adds to the appeal it provides, asking you to create shots from varied lies and to raised greens or greens below you. The course opens with a good par 4 and the 5th is another great downhill driving hole. The 10th is a very tricky narrow Par 5 but without a doubt I felt the 12th was a superb dog-leg Par 4. You must hit your drawn drive far enough to see the green and you then play across a dip to a tightly protected green; superb! If you struggle with your driving then you may struggle to score well here but overall the greens were excellent but the fairways were just starting to show a little wear & tear. The clubhouse offered a very good welcome and the food is excellent. A great days golf for 46 Euros.
I played this course in June 2005 and found it to be one of the best courses I've ever played on.
Not overly long but very demanding. Beautifully maintaine fairways and greens, very undulating and tight fairways but very fair
43 euros for a day ticket which is very good.
Overall 9 1/2 out of 10.
Play it and enjoy
Excellent course. Very similar to the top Berkshire courses, yet for a third of the price! 40 Euros for a day ticket in June 2004.
Every hole is a test and greens are fast and smooth. Fairways a lush and give a prefect lie every time. Not overly long but need to be accurate off the tee. An absolute pleasure to play and would recommend to anyone and everyone who appreciates a top golf course.
Superb - an absolute must. Extremely tight and very beautiful course, and in excellent condition. Most enjoyable, even if tiring !
Only superlatives apply to this course! The wonderful setting in a pine forest has produced a tight course where accuracy off the tee is essential (coupled with a little luck since several tee shots are blind!)It is very hilly which makes it seem longer than its 5564m off the yellows. The greens were in excellent condition and our only minor criticism was that, for September, the fairways were overwatered with no run on tee shots and some even plugging on the fairway. Worth going out of your way to play and a real joy and a test of your golf. By the way, don't be fooled by the course plan's suggestion that the 13th is a double dog-leg: you can cut through the second cornerfrom the bottom of the hill!
I played this course twice whilst on holiday in the area in July 1997. It is an undulating course with some fairly hard walking in places. Almost all the holes are played through pine lined fairways and as I remember, there is not a weak hole on the course. There is a truly spectacular par 3 on the back nine played from a very elevated tree to a green that falls away on all sides. If you are in the area, this is a must play course. You will not be disappointed!
One glorious Friday during June 1998 on our World Cup visit to France where we based ourselves at St Palais Sur-mer we played Royan Golf course. we are members at Cruden Bay in Scotland and thought our course was spectacular. This was undoubtedly one of the best courses we'll ever play. Some holes especially 10,14 and 18 are spectacular,18 is a great finishing hole.The temp was incredible that day,ave 38c but the friendly clubhouse and cool beer finished off a great day. THANKS.
During a tour of golf courses in Western France I played at Royan. This was without a shadow of doubt one of, if not the best course out of the nine that we played. Set in a pine forest it proves to be an extremely difficult course with a fair amount of water to contend with. The greens were beautifully kept and the clubhouse was adequate, highly recommended, 9 out of 10.
