Perched at an altitude of 800 m, the Golf du Puy-en-Velay, a partner of the Golfy Network, offers a unique panorama of the Ponot basin, a World Heritage site. Since it was taken over by the Golf Pro two years ago, this dynamic and resourceful club has no shortage of novelties ! Come and discover them without delay during your golfing escapades !
Created in 1989 by the architect Tito Lassalle, the Puy en Velay golf course was already a real 9-hole course, with its more than 3000 metres of white tees, its real par 5s and its layout accessible to all.
Even if the club’s regulars could have continued to enjoy their “links in the mountains”, with the pleasure of playing it several times, it was without counting on the ambition of the owner, Théo Thomas, who is keen to make his club more dynamic. Thus, 9 new holes are being created, with the creation of a compact course! 3 are already effective, and the 6 others will be available in 2023 (3 in spring and 3 others in autumn). This compact course will be approved by the French Golf Federation and will therefore allow competitions as an 18-hole course.
The next greens of the compact course
In addition, all the tee boxes of the large 9-hole course are being refurbished (work to be completed next spring).
Supported by the partnership with the national football team of the town of Le Puy en Velay and the creation of the Foot Golf association, a 9-hole foot-golf course is also being built (3 holes are already in place, and the other 6 holes will be available during 2023).
Football clubs, companies and individuals will be able to take advantage of this new activity offered by the Golf du Puy en Velay.
Return on the Pro-Am
Numerous players and Pros met on the Golf for the first PRO – AMATEUR competition of the city of Le Puy en Velay which took place on September 8th.
It was under a beautiful weather that the teams of Pro-amateurs challenged each other on the course, and in the approach competition in a friendly and sporting atmosphere. Children and adults alike enjoyed golf demonstrations led by professional players.
With a generous and local table at the “Là Haut” restaurant, a partner hotel nearby, located in the heart of the town of Le Puy en Velay, this club has all the assets for a successful golfing stopover, around the Velay and Ardèche mountains, which are magnificent in summer and winter.
