With such a long hot summer drawing to a close, there’s been plenty of time for golf this year. Courses throughout the UK have been lush and busy throughout. So like me you may have managed to play a round or three at many of your local golf courses; some for the first time, and others with more regular visits. We’re pretty lucky here in the south-east corner of England as Kent, Essex and Surrey are full of great golf courses to play, including some fantastic pay and play courses. But if you were looking for a weekend getaway or golf holiday abroad that’s not going to break the bank or take too long, then why not consider golf break in France?
Kent is the closest point in the UK to France with its ferry terminals and Channel tunnel. There are plenty of fine courses waiting for British golfers on the other side of the English Channel. But for something a little more adventurous, why not take a ferry from Portsmouth or Poole to one of the French Atlantic ports, situated on the French west coast.
The French Atlantic Ports includes Le Havre, Rouen-Honfleur, Cherbourg, St Malo, Brest, Lorient, Nantes-St Nazaire, La Rochelle, Bordeaux and Bayonne-Saint Jean de Luz; and part of their beautiful countryside is a wealth of beautiful golf courses, all of which welcome tourists and golf lovers, alike.
Cherbourg is very close to the Channel Islands and hosts many golf courses including the Golf De Cherbourg which is probably one of the most beautiful nine holes you will find in the whole of Normandy. The course is relatively short (5686m) and very flat. The fairways are long and narrow with small beautifully kept greens. The Golf De Cherbourg is close to the ferry terminal and therefore an obvious place to visit. But Cherbourg has other courses that are well worth a visit. Why not book a round at the nearby18 hole Golf de la Presqu’île du Cotentin or the Golf de la Côte des Isles?
For those planning a longer stay there is Golf de Coutainville and Golf d’Omaha Beach further along the coastlines or the lovely Golf Centre Manche further inland. This beautiful part of France is truly beautiful and loves its golf. So I can’t really think of any good reasons not to book Brittany Ferries golf holidays and enjoy the beautiful French cuisine, culture and play a few rounds. Can you?
