Pessac Golf Club was a fairly basic design when it opened in the early 1990’s but it has matured into a respected course with several good holes. Flat and easy-on-the-eye, the course is spread over 120 hectares quite near Bordeaux Airport, it is ideal for your first or last gasp of Aquitaine air before flying home.

There are three loops of nine, each par 36 and about 3300 yards off the back and each with a touch of water. Pine trees dominate and the greens are small so there’s plenty to challenge you but Pessac makes for a pleasant round of holiday golf.
