Review for Sablé-Solesmes (La Forêt & La Rivière)

Reviewer Score:


I just played this course in a championship, having played some of the best golf I can possibly think of. we had a 2 club wind, very fast green and thankfully very little rough. I'm a 4 hcp, played fantastic and shot 1 over. the average score on the last day was probably around 80 - with about 40 players having handicaps of 2 or better. Why am I mentioning this ? to say that this is a very hard golf course. the fairways are very narrow, green are usually large but in reality are like a three leaf clover ... so they are not that big. so strategy is of the essence and knowing the course will help. the back nine has a lot of water and one can lose a lot of golf balls. The important thing here is to play the right tees for your level. my opinion about this course is mixed. a great test of golf from the back tees and in championship conditions, but I am not sure that on a regular basis the maintenance is sufficient, in which case it becomes an slightly above average course.
