Les Bordes #1 in Contenental Europe

LB 18 green with LB


It’s always nice to read “kind” reviews of our designs, like the excerpt below, written by an obviously avid and observant golfer:

“It is difficult to pick my favourite holes as all 18 are special, however my top four were: Hole 7 – short par 5 where you have to cross the lake three times to get to the green. Hole 13 – par 3, with 150 m carry over the lake to a small sloping green. Hole 14 – another par 5, where your 3rd shot is to a perfect island green. Hole 18 – the final hole, and they have saved the best to last…. “

The very “intriguing” part of the above review is; he’s selected four “favourite holes”; two of which are completely natural and two are completely fabricated.  For example, hole #7 is perfectly natural.  We hardly touched the landscape.  On the other hand, hole #14 is complete fabrication, with zero connection to the original land.

This review is great because is highlights part of the magic of Les Bordes.  The contradictions (nature and man-made) are requisite pieces of the Les Bordes puzzle.  For those open to embrace it, this is part of the indefinable magic which makes Les Bordes so charming.
