Golf course[edit]

Originally conceived by Baron Marcel Bich of Bic pens and razors fame, the Les Bordes golf course is built on what was previously his 1,700-acre (690 ha) hunting estate. The Les Bordes golf course was the first course designed and built in France by Robert von Hagge and Rick Baril.[citation needed]

The Les Bordes golf course and surrounding hunting estate land was purchased in 2008 by an international consortium led by Tony Jimenez and is now being developed into a resort with a hotel, private properties and activity amenities.

A second 18-hole golf course is to be built at Les Bordes, the last golf course ever designed by Robert von Hagge.
