The golf du Médoc, the land of the French pros

At a cost of 150 000 euros, the champion of the French profession received the champion among 90 joueurs. «In a choisi la date en fonction du calendrier international, remember the founder of Kalika. I want the players to be proud to be champions of France! “We plan to launch the trial for a minimum 3 -year lease at Médoc golf,” continued Denis Fabre, tournament director.

Possible connection in 2022, the organizers will need in large part at the venue of a title sponsor: the Maisons MCA (construction company installed in New Aquitaine, which has forty agencies in the Netherlands, the Basque Country… ) directed by Serge Melchiorre.

The course of the castles

Nestled in the heart of 600 hectares of nature, in the heart of vineyards and close to the great wines of Médoc, the Courtyard of the Castles, designed in 1989 by American architect Bill Coore, runs its long fairways in a landscape modeled as a link. All there is: genetics, noises and additions. Not only the dunes and the sea are missing.

The holes are very varied and the vast greens, with often surprising spots, remain very complex to read. The bunkers, diabolically placed on the drive shafts pose a problem, but the big batsmen survive.

Renowned for its championship course and its 4-star hotel with its spa, Médoc’s golf has been completed since March 2013 by training center Bernard Pascassio, with its head Dominique Larretche.

Havret, favorite in his house

Grégory Havret is one of the best French players in history with three wins at the European Tour, including one at the Open in Scotland in 2007, in the playoffs against Phil Mickelson. But his best performance remains without a doubt his second place at the US Open in Pebble Beach in 2010.

In addition to Havret, we name among the favorites of this French championship, Raphaël Jacquelin, European Circuit player, Angoumoisin Ugo Coussaud, most recently second in the Czech Republic, the Girondins Grégory Bourdy, winner of the European Circuit Equestrian Team , Oscar Desclaux not to mention the Landais Anthony Grenier, Martin Farfal, Cyril Bouniol, Léo Mathard, Victor Trehel and the Poitevins Jules Gris or Maxime Radureau, the last winner of the Open PGA 2022 in Mont-de-Marsan last April.
