The Grand Saint Emilionnais golf club is a five star golf course located near St Emilion and designed by one of the best architects in the world, Tom Doak. This exceptional course unfolds in a valley fringed by centuries-old oak trees, framed by vineyards and located just 6 miles from the village of Saint Emilion. A new experience in France that combines the “art de vivre à la française” with the British way of playing golf.
The panoramic view over the course from the club-house is a thrill for any golfer. No artificial earth movement was created, holes follow one another in the most natural and free flowing way; such is Tom Doak’s talent for the routing plan.
