The golf course of Arcangues

The golf course of Arcangues

Located in the heart of the Basque Country with a clear view on the Pyrenees, the Golf d’Arcangues will attract players of all levels.

After having made the most of the Basque country side on the first part of the course, on your way back you will play three holes around the Arcangues Castle, before going along the famous cemetery where Luis Mariano is buried.

After the efforts made to get to the green of hole 16 you will be rewarded by a beautiful landscape giving on the Rhune and the Atlantic Ocean.

Whether you are a beginner or a confirmed player, here are a few tips to help you in your game on our course. 

Le Parcours en détails :

  • Hole n°1
    - Par 4 - hdp : 16
    375
    375
    353
    337
    317

    Ideally, a drive in draw can be rewarded by then tackling a small narrow green with a small iron.

  • Hole n°2
    - Par 5 - hdp : 6
    443
    417
    383
    363
    345

    Long range players will have to show their talent to tackle the green in two. 

  • Hole n°3
    - Par 4 - hdp : 14
    304
    286
    267
    257
    246

    This relatively short hole needs a very precise second shot because the two level green is guarded by a deep bunker.  

  • Hole n°4
    - Par 3 - hdp : 18
    149
    149
    129
    103
    77

    Played downhill this hole needs a shot precise in distance as it can be quickly fined. 

  • Hole n°5
    - Par 4 - hdp : 8
    358
    345
    316
    298
    280

    The main difficulty in this hole resides in the second shot, usually played with the ball higher that the feet. 

  • Hole n°6
    - Par 3 - hdp : 10
    172
    163
    153
    144
    123

    This long par 3, slightly uphill, needs a powerful strike, really straight because of the three level green. 

  • Hole n°7
    - Par 5 - hdp : 4
    443
    422
    396
    386
    369

    The water obstacle must be avoided with the driver, or shot over if one wants to tackle the green in the second shot without being obstructed by the trees. 

  • Hole n°8
    - Par 4 - hdp : 12
    353
    333
    301
    285
    266

    On this downhill hole, push towards the left with the drive before tackling the green with a small iron.

  • Hole n°9
    - Par 4 - hdp : 2
    380
    359
    326
    306
    279

    This hole is all the longer that it is usually played with the wind against you. Do not trust the distance in the second shot.  

  • Hole n°10
    - Par 4 - hdp : 7
    413
    395
    374
    342
    342

    On this long downhill par 4, make sure to measure correctly the distances because the green is big and very deep with 3 levels. 

  • Hole n°11
    - Par 3 - hdp : 13
    179
    148
    122
    107
    91

    Slicing is forbidden on this par 3 because of the water obstacle. But the green is of a generous size.  

  • Hole n°12
    - Par 5 - hdp : 1
    486
    465
    448
    428
    422

    This par is really a feat on this par 5 because of a banking fairway, a big water feature and a large green. 

  • Hole n°13
    - Par 4 - hdp : 9
    339
    323
    264
    254
    245

    This right dogleg hole asks for good tee off, a wood shot played in fade or pushing towards the right.

  • Hole n°14
    - Par 3 - hdp : 15
    195
    177
    150
    140
    117

    Though its green is vast, this long par 3is very well defended, partly by an off-limits and a bunker to its left.  

  • Hole n°15
    - Par 4 - hdp : 5
    363
    316
    292
    282
    248

    Play a higher club on the second shot, towards an upwards blind green. 

  • Hole n°16
    - Par 4 - hdp : 3
    329
    294
    272
    257
    237

    This hole does not look much, but we’re never long enough on the second shot, the green being very long and on four levels.

  • Hole n°17
    - Par 4 - hdp : 17
    326
    326
    299
    283
    262

    On this short downhill par 4, but with a well defended green, you lust press to the left in order to avoid the bunker on the right.  

  • Hole n°18
    - Par 5 - hdp : 11
    499
    465
    440
    408
    389

    The complexity on this long par 5 is in the third shot, because the three level green isn’t very deep and is well guarded.
