With the Pyrenees in the background, the Golf Club of Ariège presents a remarkable natural setting to golf in, and one which will make any bad shots quickly forgotten! Between oaks and wild cherry trees, this course, which is in the area of the Pre-Pyrenees at the actual foot of the Pyrenees, was created in 1985 by architect Michel Gayon and is rather physical and technical. Experienced players will take pleasure in setting out on the 18-hole, 5974m, par 71 course, while beginners can begin their career, with just as much pleasure, on the 6-hole, 830m, par 20 course.
