Birdie 8 Golf Destination of GAP BAYARD
Again in the cockpit with Michel TEICHET who takes us aboard his plane and his dream destinations…
The Birdie channel: its technical approaches golf, its panoramic discoveries and its dizzying views from the sky…
Michel TEICHET is always accompanied by available pros, their distillation of good advice is received 5/5 and their good mood adds to the desire to join them.
The destination of the day, the Golf of GAP Bayard where Michel TEICHET and Sébastien Saqib were greeted by the director of the place Michel GIRARD before joining the local Pro Anthony Manasseh.
After the fortified sides of Castellane and Digne, Sistern aboard the Durance marks the demarcation between Provence and Dauphiné with the ascent and Col Bayard.
A little before the summit, Gap is called the “soft capital” of the Southern Alps because it is good to live in a sunny climate 300 days a year at 735 m altitude.
7 km away, Bayard Plateau at an altitude of 1 250 m is an oxygenation centre of 200 ha which offers an 18 holes of golf drawn in 1989 by H. Lambert in the middle of a forest that protects winds with very nice views on the park of Ecrins and The hills of the Durance Valley and 60 km of cross-country ski slopes in winter.
For some golfers, the Gap Bayard Golf Course is the reference mountain range: Dream panorama, no artificial noise, pastoral setting and correct elevation.
In view of the interest it arouses, it is advisable to reserve its departure and a cart, especially for those who lack of training.
From the green of the 9th and the departure of the 10, we enjoy an exceptional glance on the valley where the lake and the dam of Serre-Ponçon are encased.
Attention, we do not play 9 holes, because the 9 is at the end of the plateau… with the View!
