Created in 1927, this nine-hole golf course is in an unusual setting at the heart of the Forêt des Andaines. Surrounded by trees, it fills the “Gué au Biches” clearing and is crossed by a river next to the fairways that is often a challenge.
Located on the edge of the Forêt des Andaines, Bagnoles de l’Orne’s golf course is in an outstanding natural setting. The greens fill the “Gué au Biches” clearing, a 30-acre grassy area crossed by a stream. Built in 1927, the same year as the Casino du Lac, the Golf d’Andaine has a 1½-mile course with nine holes. It is suitable for all levels of play, including families.
For beginners, there are introductory sessions available on the putting green, an area specially set out for practice. You will learn to putt straight and practice your swing so you can send the ball flying with your club. To take things further, you could opt for “discovery” or “beginner” classes and then improve your skills with private lessons to qualify for the French Golf Federation’s (FFG) carte verte.
