Welcome to Golf de Vire - La Dathée!
This course benefits from a simply stunning position. Everything here is unspoilt, the hedgerows, the original water hazards, the magnificent oak and beech trees - all combine to make Vire-La Dathée a beautiful but technically demanding course. Tee shots are challenging - and not forgiving. A strong iron game is essential. The greens are large but with subtle slopes that torment and demand great putter control.
However, new golfers will also enjoy the course and improve their game.
Near the clubhouse, looking from the 10th tee, the 'bocage virois' (small fields with wooded and banked margins) stretches to the horizon beyond Lake Dathée, with a smaller lake in the foreground. There is a danger that the beauty of this view may distract you from your game!
Golf de Vire - La Dathée is unique in Normandy. Its originality is striking, its countless traps and hazards only too memorable. It has all the elements of a great course and demands respect - as your scorecard will probably show! But show it the respect it deserves and your pleasure will be unlimited.
