Want to practice your swing in a unique setting on the banks of the Loire? After crossing over the wooden bridge past La Varenne, you will arrive at the Golf Ile d’Or.

Built on one of the islands in the Loire belonging to the town of Le Cellier, this golf course is worth the detour, and not only for its special features, like its magnificent hundred-year-old ash trees!

Learn to golf on one of the two courses: an 18-hole, par-72 course running 6,292 meters (20,643 feet) in length and a more compact 9-hole, par-27 course covering 1,217 meters (3,993 feet). On sandy terrain that is playable all year round, a high-quality practice area is also provided for you to work on your game under optimal conditions.

Bob, the clubhouse’s head chef, will concoct sophisticated dishes for your enjoyment. Between his blanquette of monkfish and sea scallops with green asparagus, the red mullet fillet on a bed of young vegetables, and a sea scallop upside-down tart with foie gras, there is something for every taste!golf-picto

Added bonus: All year long you can take advantage of a “day of discovery of golf”. This package, at a price tag of €40/person, is great for beginners and includes a lesson with a golf pro, a practice session, a meal at the clubhouse and a game on the compact 9-hole course.
