Designed in 1989 by Jean Garaialde who played in numerous international competitions and Jeremy Pern who designed many international golf courses, the Roncemay Golf Course is 6,270 metres long. It crosses a great forest, skirts 5 lakes and opens onto a vast plateau modeled and coloured like Scottish links courses.
It comprises two parts. The First, comprising eleven holes, crosses the forest of hundred year old oak trees, hedges and silver birches. The Second, more rustic and consisting of seven holes over an uneven plateau, overhangs the Auxerre countryside.
The course is quite long (6,270 metres, with a Slope rating of 140 of white balls and 5,121 metres, with a Slope rating of 132 of blue balls) with a superb 18th hole that demands two good long and accurate wood shots. This wonderful 18 hole course respects the lovely aspects of nature through which it winds. It is varied and demands all types of golf shots. It is a selective golf course, but it can be played by any level of golfer, and putting on the subtly modeled greens is particularly challenging.
