Golfing In Brittany, France
This is not a course for the novice as it is filled with daunting surprises to challenge experienced golfers.
Dinard is the second oldest golf course in France and the oldest in Brittany. Like French wine this course has improved with age. The views of the coast are nothing short of magnificent.
3. La Baule
La Baule is definitely the most popular course in Brittany. It offers two fantastic courses, the Red and the Blue. Most golfers are still unsure as to which course suits them better. You can stay a few days to find out, as the course has its own hotel. Make sure you try out the local restaurants in the evenings and spend time in the thatch roofed clubhouse.
4. Val Andre
If you compare Val Andre to other courses in Brittany it will be classed as the youngster. It was completed in the mid 1990’s and is regarded as one of the top “new” courses in France. The coastal winds provide a challenge as you tee off onto the wide, well maintained fairways.
5. Nantes La Vigneux
Some golfers will relish the challenges of this course (novice golfers may not). The golf course wends its way through woodland and boasts beautiful fairways and is made tricky by the small greens and river Cens. Your score card may not look great after the first round and there will be a lot to discuss at the nineteenth hole. This is a course that will draw you back again and again. You will challenge yourself to improve every time.
