Index 1 on the EPPA course at Franciac is the 3rd at 85 metres The difficulty lies mainly in the lake to the right of the fairway and green. An excessively forceful shot will find Out of Bounds over the green. The green itself is completely flat and raised about the fairway.

The 11th is almost as difficult. Rated Index 2 on the EPPA layout at 84 metres, ii is more dangerous than it seems at first glance. Out of Bounds lurks at the bottom-left of the green. The green is small and diagonal, which adds difficulty to the hole.

15th is 70 metres and Index 4. The pitch must be carefully played to protect against the lake on the left and there is a ditch behind the green, which is small and flat.

The green at the 82 metre 7th is raised above the fairway. The lake awaits behind the green, which falls away at either side.
