That’s hole 9, a fairly long par 4, whose flag waves the colours of Château Dauzac. “It leads back to the clubhouse and hotel, proves to be very enjoyable and really corresponds to the top- of-the-range art de vivre of our companies,” explained Vincent Paris, the Managing Director of the Golf du Médoc Resort, located along the Bordeaux Wine Route. The establishment has had a long-standing relationship with 36 wine chateaux, associating them with its two golf courses, regularly ranked among the best in Europe. “It’s a partnership that benefits everyone,” he added, “It gives the estates visibility and our clients are thrilled to go and visit the châteaux.”
The year 2020 has been particularly eventful for Vincent Paris’ teams. In addition to the government-mandated closure, which affected the whole hospitality industry during the Covid-19 lockdown, the Golf du Médoc Resort was also hit by unexpected flooding, precisely the night before reopening! Torrential rains caused the Courmateau stream, which flows alongside the fairway, to overrun and submerge all the facilities in 50 centimetres of water. “That stroke of bad luck seemed unreal at the time,” Vincent Paris said. “However, we managed to carry out a gargantuan feat and restored everything in two months to welcome our clients back on July 15th.”
Whether they came for golf or relaxation, our clients found everything that makes our site charming, nestled in the heart of 200 hectares of nature. An outstanding country club with its two golf courses Château & Vignes, a 4-star hotel with 79 rooms and suites in the Accor Group’s high-end MGallery collection, a stylish Cinq Mondes spa and a gourmet restaurant where the wine list has no equivalent: it is comprised exclusively of cuvées from 36 wine estates, from crus bourgeois to grands crus classés including Château Dauzac, which gives its name to the course’s 36 holes.
