Retz


RETZ, par 72 length 6242m (6710yds)

Retz, running partially through the forest, offers a more rustic golfing experience whilst maintaining the same level of manicuring as its sister course.  Whilst playing Retz, it is easy to forget that you are only 20 minutes from the capital.

Robert Trent Jones Snr designed Retz on the site of the ancient ‘Désert’, so it can appear wider and perhaps more forgiving, off the tee than Marly.  However do not be fooled, the signature bunkers, undulating greens and zones of high rough are very much present and need to be respected in order to return a good score.

Holes 4 and 5 weave through the forest, requiring both precision and length in order to secure a par. 
The 6th hole is bordered by the Ru de Buzot, which snakes through much of the course and creates a series of wonderful, natural water hazards. 
The par 3 11th is considered by many as the toughest hole on the course, especially from the back tees.   The mirror-lake in front of the devilishly difficult green could easily draw comparisons to Augusta in the springtime.

Natural gravel paths have been discretely constructed on Retz, allowing the use of golf buggies in all but the most inclement weather conditions.
