On the Course at Parc Bourdon

Numerous park-goers express their dissatisfaction with the recent rise in the quantity of players utilizing the course, which subsequently leads to feelings of insecurity.

It is of utmost importance for us players to remain constantly attentive and considerate towards all individuals utilizing the park. They possess the right to use the area peacefully, just as we do.


  • Avoid throwing a disc towards individuals who are walking or lounging on the lawns, unless they are properly protected from potential contact with the disc. If the number of people present is too great to inform and protect, or if you are playing alone on a hole where people are present, refrain from playing that particular hole.
  • It is mandatory to send a spotter to inspect for the existence or absence of mobile park users at intersections where paths cross the fairway. Applies to holes 8, 9, 13, and 18.
  • To ensure the safety of static park users, it is mandatory to assign a spotter to verify the presence or absence of individuals in areas of the fairway that are obscured by foliage or any other obstacles. Applies to holes 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, 13, 14, and 18.
  • Please obtain prior authorization from the occupier before entering any private gardens/property. This also applies to the vegetable garden of the farm located next to holes 17 and 18.
  • Players are expected to treat park users, local residents, and each other with kindness and consideration, and to approach all interactions with a calm and positive attitude.
