Les Mielles is a fun course and different from any other course on the Island. It is an 18 hole par 70, starting with a reachable par 5. The tee shot is best kept down the left as there is water that runs down the right side of the fairway. The second and third shot, depending on your level of golf, also need to be kept down the left side of the fairway and green. The green is relatively small and aiming for the middle gives you a reasonable putt. The 2nd hole is another par 5 where you just need to avoid the bunkers as you navigate the hole. The 3rd hole is a fun par 4 which can be reached in one shot depending on how risky you’re feeling that day. The next couple of holes are pretty straightforward par 4s, you just need to avoid the water. The 6th and 8th holes are tricky par 3s that need a safe shot onto the green. I suggest playing your drive on the 9th hole down the left side of the fairway to give yourself the best shot into the green.

Les Mielles can be a mentally challenging course with quite a few of the holes having water running alongside the fairways or short of the green. The key here is to pick good targets and keep your head down. As a visiting golfer, you can play here most times of the day, the price will just vary. This course is close to St Ouen’s beach so you will be able to hear the waves crashing as you take a stroll on the links.
Les Mielles is open to all standards of golfer and is great for families to play together. There is no handicap limit. The course can be busy in the summer and I would advise avoiding Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays, as they tend to be the busiest days for leagues and competitions. This is a great course to play in the early evening as you will be able to enjoy dinner afterwards while watching the sunset in the distance.
The dress code at Les Mielles is fairly traditional, with a no denim or tracksuit policy. Shirts are to be collared and tucked in, and long socks are to be worn with shorts for the gentlemen. The clubhouse is open to the public as well as golfers, so the same rules apply as on the course.
There is a good pro shop available at Les Mielles golf course with all your golfing needs to hand.
