St Omer has been a regular feature of the European Tour for a number of years which I find a bit of a puzzle because it's not like the "pro's" to like a course that has so many undulations, and mini dog legs. I always refer to my playing handicap at the time I play course's as I believe that this is a guide on difficulty; so playing of 9 I found this track to be difficult. Playing a course for the first time is always a bit of a problem but St Omer was extremely difficult first time round. Cannot recommend this layout for anyone with a handicap of over 14 - the undulations, roll off's, and blind shots mean that a lost ball for a wayward shot is a distinct possibility, and the fairway shots to the green are often above or below your feet unless you can get within 120 yards of the Greens where the fairways seem to be relatively flat. Condition of course in June was excellent. Tight Fairways, Medium to fast Greens. Would I play here again; of course I would but this is by no means an easy track.
TIP - If you can use a ride on buggy, take a course map, kidnap a local for guidance.
Of Course - As expected in France everything is good. - not cheap, but good.
Value For Money: Fair t.m.sullivan July 31, 2013
An incredibly hilly course. Mixed reviews from the group of 12 who I played with. Greens were not great although it was early in the season and they had been sanded as a result. Definitely must PRE order a buggy it is far too hilly and they don't have many. Indeed my motor burnt out on my electrical cart.
Some very nice holes but as we are usually based in Hardelot I wouldn't drive 40 mins to get there again. Robert Darrow
