The Saint-Samson Golf School

We are sorry: this page is on work… Meanwhile, you can get the infos actualized on the french version of this site. Thank you, and don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or mail!

From September to June, the Saint-Samson Golf Course welcomes children, aged 4 to 18, at our Golf School held on Wednesday afternoon and Saturdays.

Our pro golfers, Patryk Lescastreyres & Jean-Dominique Savidan, applies their teaching skills to enable all youngsters to develop their golf potential, using an approach that is both technical and enjoyable. We are also fortunate enough to have several volunteers at the St-Samson, and their support is invaluable in helping youngster to get out on the course in complete safety.


“For youngsters, the Golf School is a place for training and also for putting everything into practice, whether as a hobby or for competitions.

The aims of the Sports Association are that each player learns to love playing golf, in an atmosphere of camaraderie and sportmanship, progressing at his or her own pace, gradually adopting the main values that are conveyed by our sport.”

– The Saint-Samson Sport Association

  • To understand and master the expected behaviour (respecting other players, respecting the course, the etiquette of the game),
  • To play on the course for pleasure and for the challenge of the game.
  • Theory input,
  • Training on the practice range and on the course,
  • Events and activities (achieving various “flag” stages, being coached on the course by seasoned members of the association, getting your first rankings in competitions),
  • Individual and team competitions. The area commitee organises a mini-tour of golf courses int the Côtes d’Armor area, allowing youngsters to rise to the challenge. Depending on their level, they can take part in local, regional championships.


Lessons are given by qualified golfing professionals and other events are led by members of the Sports Association, offering a rounded approach to training (accompanying and coaching learners on the course, marking progress by achieving “flags” and getting their first handicap index). Those aged 15 to 18 are split into different groups according to their age, golfing level and aims (recreational, competitive and so on).
