The Constance Belle Mare Plage Legend Golf Course
The Constance Belle Mare Plage Legend Golf Course has 18 holes.
It offers 5 tee positions: the Golden Tee for professionals (5.942m); the White Tee (Tournament Tee) is 6.498m; the Blue Tee for men (5.557m) and finally the Red Tee for ladies (4.177m).
Below is a detailed description of each hole:
Details of the first 6 holes:
Hole 1 – Par 4 – 360 metres: This opening hole is easy and offers spectacular panoramic views. To get the game off to a good start, it is advisable to hit the first shot on the left-hand side of the fairway, so as to be able to play a second shot with a medium iron to reach a green that is slightly higher than ground level.
Hole 2 – Par 5 – 512 metres: A double dogleg for this second hole, which will give the big hitter a chance to reach the green in two shots. But to do so, you’ll have to make a blind shot over a volcanic formation. The safest method will be to stop at the corner of the second dogleg, leaving an approach to the green.
Hole 3 – Par 4 – 342 metres: This hole has a slight curve to the left. After a tee shot over a generous landing area, the player is faced with a second shot through the water. This is also the first hole to be played against the prevailing wind.
Hole 4 – Par 4 – 312 metres: This hole follows the same direction as the previous hole, and the second shot has to be played steeply uphill to an elevated green. The player will have to be prepared to use a more powerful golf club than he thinks to compensate for the slope and reach the green. In other words, it’s important to overestimate the distance to be covered to avoid falling short.
Hole 5 – Par 4 – 370 metres: This hole has a slight curve to the left. To facilitate the second shot, the player should aim for the right side of the fairway with his tee shot. This will allow the player to play an easier second shot with a medium iron, which will increase the chances of reaching the green in two shots.
Hole 6 – Par 5 – 504 metres: This second par five hole is played into the wind, which makes the game more difficult. Players with a strong shot might be tempted to try and reach the green in two shots, but this will depend on their skill level. However, the green is protected by a large volcanic formation, which can make the approach difficult for any player.
Details of holes 7 to 12 :
Hole 7 – Par 3 – 127 metres: The first of the Par 3s, this is a short iron played on a green carved out of the natural rocky landscape.
Hole 8 – Par 4 – 340m curved to the right. Keep your game on the left-hand side of the fairway to win the green more easily.
Hole 9 – PAR 3 146m, quite complicated. This is surely the most convoluted hole on the course and one that will give you a hard time. What’s more, the course climbs a hill, which adds to the difficulty.
Hole 10 – Par 5 – 518m: This hole marks the start of the second half of the course and is a long downhill Par 5. The player must make a precise tee shot followed by a strategic second shot to place the ball in an advantageous position on the fairway. This will allow the player to aim for the green with a third shot. The green on this hole is welcoming because it slopes forward, making it easier for the ball to reach the hole. In short, this hole requires an intelligent playing strategy to position the ball optimally on the fairway, which will make it easier to reach the green and obtain a favourable score.
Hole 11 – PAR 3 of 146m in the water! The lake on the left-hand side of the green won’t do you any favours.
Hole 12 – The difficulty is at its peak on this 414m PAR 4. You’ll have to play with the uphill slope and avoid falling into the water after the second shot.
Details of holes 13 to 18 :
Hole 13 – A 360m PAR 4, the finishing flag is surrounded by water (3 sides), so don’t over-shoot!
Hole 14 – A small PAR 3 of 135m, easy? … not so much…. you’ll need to be very precise if you don’t want to affect the score.
Hole 15: 354m for a pretty straight Par 4. The line is straight but the path to get there is hilly!
Hole 16 – 355m Par 4, a pretty dog-leg on the right. Watch out for the slope, it can be misleading!
Hole 17 – PAR 4, 285m, you’ll need to hit it hard for this PAR 4, but make sure you dose it right or you’ll be penalised on the left-hand side of the green. Favour the right-hand side of the green!
Hole 18 – PAR 4, 362m, with no visibility, you’ll have to aim to the left to gain visibility. The second shot will be over the water for this last hole, which offers a historic setting with a view of the old lime kiln.
