Course Summary

Created in 1989 by Jean Garaialde, an international golfer, and Jeremy Pern, a designer of many international golf courses, Le Roncemay's golf course offers a magnificent setting for sport and nature lovers.

This 6,219-metre long course passes through a forest of hundred-year-old oak, beech and birch trees, and opens out onto a vast plateau, modelled on the Scottish links courses. This golf course is made up of two areas: 11 holes are located in the forest, while 7 holes are on the plateau, with its undulating terrain overlooking the Yonne countryside.
