French Golf Vacations for Groups & Couples to France

Choose Your Golf & HotelWhen you realize that France is home to Continental Europe's first golf course (Pau, 1856), and now boasts the mainland's most top 25 layouts (eight), and top 100 (twenty one), who could return to this intensely entertaining country without their sticks? The French game is decidedly relaxed. Two balls are welcome to play away. Ample tee times allow you to schedule your rounds comfortably with sightseeing. In a French golf club, you are considered a member for the day and frequently welcome to enjoy a complimentary round in the afternoon after your morning game.

There are around 600 courses here of every flavor from links to clifftop, sandhills to parkland, wooded to mountain boasting the work of leading architects like Robert Trent Jones Sr and Jr, Pete Dye, Ronald Fream, Tom Simpson, Player and Nicklaus. Robert Von Hagge earns top honors for Les Bordes, the country's premier layout since it opened in 1986. Located 90 miles southwest of Paris in the ancient Sologne forest covering the heart of the Loire Valley, Les Bordes is king because it is a truly total experience. Hagge's masterpiece is carved through mature oaks and birches, beautifully groomed, with twelve holes defended by water. Better still, Les Bordes provides an ideal base to explore the valley's rich selection of castles (highlighted by Francois I's Chambord), medieval fortresses, cathedrals, vineyards and neighboring layouts. Further Southwest, Bordeaux and Biarritz offer the defining French golf experience: play 18 in the morning, taste the best wines of Saint Emilion or Medoc in the afternoon. Paris features outstanding choices. Twenty miles from Notre Dame is National's Albatross, celebrated host to the French Open for the past 10 years; Fontainebleau is a Continental top 10 by Tom Simpson where Hogan entertained American soldiers in 1953; Chantilly is another Tom Simpson delight; Paris International is a hilly parkland course by Nicklaus offering impeccable fairways and manicured greens.

Just ninety minutes by air from Paris, the French Riviera gathers an impressive number of remarkable championship golf courses such as Royal Mougins, another marvelous Hagge design located 20 minutes from La Croisette Cannes; Four Seasons Provence with two new Dave Thomas' jewels; Gary Player's mountain course, Chateau de Taulane; and spectacular Fregate overlooking the Mediterranean.
