Golf de Limère is located just to the south of Orléans and is set in the delightfully secluded Sologne Forest. It’s one of 20 French courses operated by Blue Green. 

Limère is a modern, thoughtfully designed Cabell B. Robinson layout which opened for play in 1992 and can be enjoyed equally by golfers of all abilities. Naturally you’ll need to select your tee box carefully. From the back tees Limère measures a modest 6,221 metres but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s a pushover as the course tests the very best during annual National Championships held at the club.   

Routed across relatively flat and easy walking terrain, the Limère challenge really starts at the greensites which are invariably well bunkered, large and rather tricky to read. But you’ll also need to safely negotiate the trees which can cause a fair few dropped shots if you are wayward from the tee.  

The course is nicely balanced, you can expect to use all the clubs in your bag and the 18th is one of the finest closing holes in France with its island green. The whole Limère experience can be summed up as a very pretty picture, so don’t forget your camera!

Description: Limère is a modern, thoughtfully designed Cabell B. Robinson layout which opened for play in 1992 and can be enjoyed equally by golfers of all abilities. Rating: 4 out of 6

We played here last year and enjoyed the course so we returned last week. We agree that there is a slightly rundown feel about Limere. We were disappointed by the course condition. Overall impressions are of a good course layout but poor maintenance, which had deteriorated this year compared to our previous visit.

Fairways had inconsistent lies. Rough was poorly kept. Many tee boxes were out of use and under repair, and the upkeep of those in use was poor. Some bunkers have new sand compared to last year. The greens were generally ok. We would have played elsewhere had we known about the course condition in advance.

have to agree with previous review in that clubhouse and hotel dont give the best first impression, but once you get going it is all very pleasant. Nice tree lined holes good bunkering and certainly a course that you would score better for playing a couple of times

The first glimpse of Limère is not really thrilling: messy parking space, not that great looking hotel and tiny club house (a renovation project already exists). But if you, like me, are here for the golf, you surely won’t be disappointed. With Les Bordes being now completely private, this course is definitely the premier golfing destination in that area of France. Measuring just under 6200 meters from the back tees, it is not the longest course. With the longest par 4 at 389 meters, length is never really an issue. Placing your ball on the other hand really is as all par 4 and 5 are doglegs, yes all of them!! Has anyone seen this anywhere else before? The fairways are all wide, but before deciding to take the big stick out, you’ll have to decide for yourself if it is strategically a good choice. And you’d better know your distances well! Greens were all sensational, difficult to read and quite undulating. Real carpets. One slight disappointment is how uninspiring the par 3s (7th and 16th especially) looked from the tees, but when you reach the greens you’ll realize they are by no means poor holes and provided that you are on the dance floor, a 2 putt is never given. Favorite holes were par 5 6th with water on the left side of the fairway, 11th, 13th (2 other par 5s) and 14th. The round was very enjoyable and I’d return any time. Cédric
