Golf de Nampont St-Martin

 

Les Cygnes (The Swans) Par 72 - 6051m

Le Belvedere Par 70 -5275m

 

We recommend this club as the most welcoming and friendly in the region.  Its two courses offer totally contrasting styles, Les Cygnes is long, flat, and watery, with the almost unique distinction of crossing a regional border (the River Authie between the Nord Pas-de-Calais and Picardy). The other course, Le Belvedere, winds prettily in and out of mature parkland woods on chalk downs to the south side of the Authie valley.

 

Les Cygnes  So many bad things are said about this course that we’ll restrict ourselves to mentioning just three.  It’s not very well maintained, with uneven tees, rough fairways and slow, bumpy greens.  It’s poorly designed, so that you can’t use a driver off the tee on some long holes for fear of running out of fairway, while other par 4 greens are almost reachable with the driver.  It’s often badly affected by wet weather and it becomes a swamp most winters.  If you play this course, be prepared for lots of bad lies, lots of bad luck, and lots of water everywhere. On two holes you will have to cross the river Authie, from Picardy into Pas-de-Calais, or the reverse.  This at least offers you the opportunity to claim genuinely to have “twice hit the ball into the next county”.

 

The Belvedere It’s not fashionable to say so but this is the better of the two courses.  It’s prettier and more varied, and a good shot will usually be properly rewarded. The occasional less good shot is unlikely to be so harshly punished as on Les Cygnes, and almost all the dangers are clearly visible.  In wet weather this course remains mostly playable, and on baking hot sunny days there’s more shade.  Because it’s two loops of 9 holes, you can stop for refreshments at the bar after the 9th. The bar is friendly and the restaurant here provides good meals at reasonable prices.  Do eat here - it’s the best clubhouse restaurant in the region..
