Golf de Garcelles introduction
The first couple of holes of the golf course lull you into a false sense of security with their wide, open fairways. However, with water featuring prominently on the back nine and multi-levelled greens, beware!
Golf de Garcelles information
18 holes, 70 par, 6251 yards. Parkland.
Recently extended to 18 holes by the architect Yves Bureau, the 6,251 yard, par 70 Garcelles golf course is to be found just 6km from the town of Caen. The first few holes can lull you into a false sense of security with wide, open fairways. However the par 5 7th weighs in at 632 yards and water features play a prominent role on the back nine, which is dominated by short, tight par 4s. However the golf courses' primary defence mechanism are its tricky greens.
