Château de Ribagnac is proud to announce its association with the championship standard Golf de la Porcelaine. Our guests can now enjoy the privileges of this outstanding course only 20 minutes away from the Château. The course (75 hectares) is one of outstanding beauty, with spectacular views, impeccable greens and a relaxed atmosphere. Wooded, with difficult slopes and interesting water hazards, this course has something to entice players of all skill levels. We can usually obtain convenient tee times even at weekends, and with the charming restaurant and bar on site, you can spend your day in the perfect countryside without a care, away from the crowds of everyday life.
There is also a pro-shop on site for those essential clothes, shoes and equipment.
There is an excellent experienced English-speaking coach, Pierre Sineux, with several titles to his name, available for lessons. There is also a covered driving range.
The course is designed by Jean Garaialde.

In the Limousin, there are nine significant golf courses that we can arrange for guests to play on. This is made especially easy with the “Golf Passport” scheme, that you can purchase directly from us, and allows access to the courses in one of golf’s best- kept secret destinations. The countryside in Limousin is ideal for golf, with lakes and rolling hills and seemingly endless space.
Golf Courses 2007
For 2007, at Golf de la Porcelaine, we are providing courses for all levels including beginners’ courses.
You will, of course, start your day fortified with your breakfast at the Château, and be ready to earn your lunch at the restaurant.
The beginners’ courses aim to give the novice “the bug” and get to a standard where they can begin to play most courses. All courses are run over five half days, Monday to Friday, with tuition and practice time included. You will practice technical skills, analyse strategy, learn how to score and discover some of the secrets of the driving range. On your last day, players are free to play the course at their leisure. As the tuition takes place in the morning, this will leave you free to explore the region in the afternoons and evenings, if you wish.
These courses require four people to participate. We can arrange for you to borrow clubs, if you wish.
Tariff: Euros 195 per person
Euros 360 per couple
For more experienced players (or if you prefer to learn one-to-one or as a couple), you may choose individual courses, so that you can benefit from closer attention, the challenge of the course and the excellent practice facilities.
Tariff: Euros 295
Euros 395 per couple
Individual tuition is also available, running over the week in the morning, from Monday to Friday.
Tariff: 30 minutes: Euros 22
