As with all our events, we put a considerable focus on the social experience, as well as playing some superb golf courses. Our aim is always for you to have a wonderful few days of golf, whilst dining and socialising in the company of like- minded golfers.
The Manoir, Le Touquet
A few minutes from Le Touquet town centre, Europe’s most fashionable resort town of the 1920s and 30s, we find the Le Manoir Hôtel. Nestled against a backdrop of beautiful pine forests, this historic establishment has lost none of its charm or elegance over the years and has recently undergone a refurbishment and is now a boutique-style hotel, with a truly eloquent ambience. Famed for its cozy and inviting atmosphere, the hotel presents a serene and quiet environment to rest, relax and enjoy wonderful gourmet dining, as well as being perfectly located for the golf courses that we are playing
Le Touquet Golf Club – Le Mer Course
Created by Architects Harry Colt and Charles ‘Hugh’ Alison, in 1931, La Mer (The Sea) is a course of international fame and reputation, and France’s number one links golf course. Set in the dunes, it has hosted many major tournaments, including the French Open on six separate occasions, and indeed won by the legendary Seve Ballesteros on the last occasion. La Mer’s wild beauty is matched only by the force of the wind, which is an integral part of the course. This course is challenging, exciting and always a joy to play.
Le Touquet Golf Club – Le Foret Course
La Forêt (The Forest) nestles in 1,000 hectares of beautiful pines, oaks and poplars. One of the oldest courses in France, its atmosphere is serene and peaceful, sheltered from the coastal winds by the trees which define it. This classic course is defined by the quiet, yet joyful environment.
Hardelot Golf Club – Pins Course
The Pins course at Hardelot offers one of the most beautiful golf settings in Europe with a distinct character, providing everything the discerning player is looking for. It is a wonderful course in an exceptionally natural setting. The course was built in 1934 by the renowned British architect, Tom Simpson. Rated in France’s top 10 courses, Simpson’s forest masterpiece is a challenge and a joy. Accuracy is key as we navigate the tree-lined fairways and well-guarded greens of this stunning championship course.
Belle Dune Golf Club
Nestled in the heart of the most beautiful sandbank dunes of Europe, near the seafront, Golf de Belle Dune is a superb golf course. Inspired by the traditional Irish and Scottish links, its greens seem to melt into the landscape. Here, the protection of the natural environment is a principle, and the course benefits from exemplary maintenance during the whole year, ensuring the respect of the ecosystem.
