Golf de Bondues offers to golfers two magnificent golf courses.
The golf population of Bondues Golf Club, with 1 250 adults and 350 under age 25, is very diverse. Some come for a walk and discover nature. Others give an appointment to share a round with friends. Others are looking for other members for professional meetings. For each of these, one of the two courses of Bondues Golf Club is always dedicated, free of official competition.
These two courses cover a total area of about 259 acres and their architects are world-renowned Fred Hawtree and Robert Trent-Jones.
One of the priorities of the nonprofit association that manages the club is focused on the training of young golfers who benefit from a school managed by three golf professionals and their team. This golf school teaches to 160 children and teenagers during an hour and a half every Wednesday during school periods.
Golf de Bondues Trent-Jones Course:
6 721 yards – Par 72 to 1 300 trees and 84 bunkers
The Trent Jones course at Bondues has gained a good reputation. Strategy is an important factor and comes in as early as the first tee where water on the left makes you wonder if you have to hit a driver to a narrow landing area to get a chance to be on the green in two, or play safe and hit three shots to this opening par five. The final hole is a 423-metre par four where tournaments can be lost or won. Some lovely par threes will test your nerve and your ability to avoid water. The Trent Jones course at Bondues is accompanied by a slightly easier Hawtree designed 18-hole layout
Golf de Bondues Hawtree Course:
6 810 yards – Par 73 to 4200 trees and 86 bunkers
He built Bondues after being responsible the well-known St Nom la Bretèche. The location of trees over the course is the work of Russell Page who is a British landscape architect. The course is long and narrow and very different to Trent Jones’s course. Greens are quite large but well protected by strategically placed bunkers.
