The hole 17 is particularly spectacular, realizing the dream of every golfer to a drive of 152 meters (PAR 3) above the sparkling waters of the bay to a green perched in the middle of volcanic rocks.
Note that the green fees are free for hotel guests of Constance hotels : The Belle Mare Plage and Le Prince Maurice.(The Belle Mare Plage is closer )

The Links course PAR 71 , where the golf cart is mandatory, is newer, as designed and launched in November 2002 by two other champions Rodney Wright and Peter Allis .
