Deauville’s Hotel du Golf Barrière, a luxury four star hotel overlooking Deauville, with an informal friendly ambiance in a handsome and typical Norman architecture dated from the early 20th century. The golf course surrounds the hotel, making the Hotel du Golf the perfect golf resort situated within 10 minutes from one of the most famous French shopping areas (Deauville) and 30 minutes from the magnificent Honfleur painters’ port.
Grand Hotel Du Dinard is a prestigious four star hotel with an architecture dating back to the Second Empire which overlooks the sea and faces the ramparts of Saint-Malo. Close to the beaches and just one stone’s throw away from the Casino, the Grand Hotel du Dinard has all the charms of a typical seaside resort and was a favourite destination for aristocratic families during the 19th century.
Deauville Golf Course
Overlooking Deauville’s bay, golfers play just outside the windows of the Grand Hotel at Deauville Golf, an old and challenging course designed by Tom Simpson. A large variety of trees such as oak, elm, ash and apple (symbol of the Calvados country) surrounds the fairways, where there are still remains of a wall of the Marquis de Lassay’s castle. Deauville is one of the most exclusive golf courses in Normandy where many foreign golfers come from all over the world to enjoy golf, relax and …gamble at the famous casino.
Etretat Golf Course
Situated at the top of Etretat’s cliffs and overlooking the world-renowned natural arches in the cliffs (Aiguille Creuse), this outstanding golf course is considered one of the most spectacular in Europe.
Like authentic links, Etretat Golf Course offers windy conditions and dreadful gorse surrounding some of the fairways. It requiries long and straight iron shots, representing a tough challenge for all golfers. Even after you have reached the green, difficulties remain with the up and down slopes and the flagsticks bending in the gusts.
Dinard Golf Course
Dinard is the second oldest golf course in France. Set along the shore, this traditional links course designed by Willie Dunn in 1887 has conserved its Scottish design. Even though the course’s length appears short (par 68, 5,700 yards), the wind coming from the ocean makes it much longer. Club selection at Dinard is a permanent challenge for players who have to know how to play any type of approach shot. On this exciting course offering spectacular views of the ocean and the Emerald coast, wisdom and accuracy are the key aspects of the game.
Pleneauf Golf Course
Pleneuf is a superb seaside golf course with breathtaking views of the sea from most of the holes. The fairways are pretty wide for the tee shots, but when the wind blows (and it always blows), keeping the ball in play becomes the priority. The fast greens are well defended by numerous bunkers thoughtfully placed. A few holes are set along the beach including the eleventh, an outstanding par 5 whose back tee is placed on the hilliest part of the course and overlooks the whole coast.

Sightseeing en route to Normandy
Visit Monet’s Gardens in Giverny, a wonderful promenade in the flower paradise of the impressionist master. The house, made of pink crushed brick, is where Claude Monet lived from 1883 to 1926 and once again has its colourful décor. Visitors can admire the collection of Japanese prints of the master as well as the huge Nymphéas studio which contains the Foundation’s shop. The gardens have been replanted as they once were: the rectangular Clos Normand offers from Spring to Autumn the palette of varying colours of the painter-gardener who was “ecstatic about flowers”. Lastly the water garden with its famous Japanese Bridge, its azaleas and its pond has once again become that basket of sky and water which inspired the pictorial universe of the water lilies.
