Accueillir au golf en France . . .
Golfers who think France is a country to be by-passed en route to Spain and France are missing a treat. When it comes to golf in the country, it definitely is a case of Vive la Difference. Golf holidays there represent excellent value and quality – both in terms of the courses and après golf.
Moreover, the Eurotunnel makes getting to France a breeze and offers a much cheaper and convenient alternative than flights. And once there, the extensive and well-maintained autoroute network makes all parts of the country accessible – and quickly.
Having crossed the Channel, however, such is the array of top class courses within easy reach of Calais it’s tempting to ignore what the rest of the country has to offer.
As well as boasting top class hotels, Le Touquet is home to two challenging courses – La Mer and La Foret – while Golf d’Hardelot, Golf de Belle Dune and Saint-Omer Golf Club are also firm favourites.
Further south, the attractions of Paris need no introduction and the surrounding area is home to some famous courses such as Golf de Chantilly , Chateau D’augerville and Fontainebleu, considered to be one of the best in Europe. In addition, the Golf National will host the 2018 Ryder Cup.
To the west are the picturesque resorts of Normandy, Brittany and the Western Loire. Convenient for St Malo Domaine des Ormes & the coastline has many charming courses and holiday towns: Trouville, Deuville and La Baule are perfect for a combined golf and beach holiday, as well as having many restaurants and bars.
Further afield, where sun is almost guaranteed, superb Chateaux & Golf resorts can be found including the sophisticated Domaine de Manville Hotel in Les Baux-de-Provence and Chateau des Vigiers near St Emillion in the Dordogne
Finally, even the French Alps have emerged as a golfing destination where the LPGA Evian Masters has put Evian-les-Bains on the map.
