ABOUT THE GOLF COURSE
Home to the French PGA, Le Vaudreuil Golf Club, just outside Rouen, in Normandy looks a picture as you drive through the gates. The first thing you see is the magnificent thatched 17th century Norman clubhouse and the surrounding holes. It’s a simpler layout than Champ de Bataille, the fairways here allow for aggressive drives but the greens are small and well-defended. But like Champ de Bataille it is considered one of the prettiest courses in France.
Le Vaudreuil is very flat, with lots of trees, and the course has been lengthened to almost 7000 yards to up the challenge. We like it – not least for the great food and relaxed atmosphere.
