Golfing World course report: Saint Emilion
Golfing World visits Saint Emilion, where the Mourgue D'algue family along with Tom Doak are set to build a stunning new course.D'algue are building a new course with the help of world renowned golf course designer John Doake. Just around six months away from completion we went to take a look at why the course will be so special. Well I think it's going to be a special golf course because it's a family project. We found this specific plan about ten years ago.

And if you can do that, then you don't have to move dirt from the fairway so much to make the golf course interesting. I think think it would be pure golf where you can play fast where you have white fairways, where you can
