So, France is ideal for a golf holiday at any time of year with
courses in all regions of France and with a hundred new golf courses having been built
over the past few years, you have plenty of choice.
The main golfing areas people think of in France are centred around places near to Le
Touquet and Biarritz, but there are numerous other excellent golf courses dotted all over
the French countryside with some of these still having been virtually undiscovered.
One popular area is Provence and the Cote d'Azur which
have golf courses from Monte Carlo to the Pyrenees and one of these would make an ideal
destination for a longer golfing holiday.
But in the Rhone Alpes region are private hotels with their
own golf courses set amidst the stunning mountain scenery.
The golf courses of the Loire and Burgundy are either a short flight to France or easy drive for
most people and are in the ideal location for those that want other things to occupy them
when not on the golf course.
Yet if you love sight seeing and being able to see snow capped mountains all year round or
the glorious beaches, then the South East of France is definitely the place for you.
And with well over 100 golf courses to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice,
although you may find that your budget dictates a little, as some of the green fees can be
far more expensive than the courses in the North of France.
But for a golf weekend or a longer golf holiday there is so much choice, and if you prefer
a slightly cooler climate than the South of France, then the regions of Brittany, Normandy and Pas de Calais are good options. With well over
130 golf courses that are suitable for most handicaps along with very reasonable green
fees, the short trip across the channel by ferry can
make for a very reasonable weekend break with
your family or friends.
