In northern Bordeaux, Golf du Médoc is a sprawling golf and spa retreat surrounded by the region’s famous vineyards. The low-rise resort is also surrounded by two 18-hole courses: Les Vignes, a challenging course set in maritime pine forest, and the lauded Chateaux course, where the fairways are lined with heather and each hole is named for a different vintage from the local wine producing area, Médoc. The 79 guestrooms are more comfortable than chic, with a griege color scheme, chunky leather-look headboards and subtle tartan prints on the chairs and footstools. Superior Rooms and Suites come with a private terrace overlooking the greens. Beyond the fairways, the resort has a spa with an indoor pool, hammam, and gym; opt for the signature Albatros massage, which incorporates golf balls and essential oils. Regional dishes are paired with Bordeaux wines at Le Table du Médoc, and the more casual Clubhouse offers all-day dining, with a patio overlooking the grounds.
In the Area
In Bordeaux town (a 30-minute drive from the resort) make a beeline for the Triangle d’Or (Golden Triangle), home to the Grand Thèatre-Opera de Bordeaux, the Musée d’Aquitaine and the Musée des Beaux Arts. Beyond the city, explore the region’s beaches and the Dune du Pyla, Europe’s tallest sand dune. Aracahon Bay is the oyster capital of France; head to La Boîte à Huîtres, a little wood-paneled restaurant that serves the freshest oysters in town. Explore the area by hopping from one vineyard to the next; several offer free tours and tastings.
How to Get There
We enjoyed our stay at Golf Du Medoc but unfortunately The weather wasn’t kind to us and we had rain and thunder and lightning. The swimming pool however was very nice as was the local wine tasting. The rooms were very nice and the staff very friendly,
Coupes stay, playing golf, eating and drinking locally. Good value in Golf, food and Wines. Wine prices appropriate, superb local choices. Golf pace of play was excellent, but one course closed on weekend (Chateaux) for a group = both days = was really unacceptable to my idea.
We spend six days at Golf du Medoc, playing golf on two great courses. BUT, the resort is literally in the middle of no-where and without a car, you are 45 to 60 minutes from Bordeaux with no local taxi service, so even if you just want to go nearby for dinner, you need to order a taxi from Bordeaux at 60+ Euros each way. So if you stay, plan on either renting a car or doing everything at the resort.
