Great Britain and Ireland get the headlines for golf across the pond. However, France is an excellent destination for not only championship golf but the ‘joie de vivre’ that makes a France golf tour a fulfilling experience. France boasts the oldest course in Continental Europe, Le Pau. Opened in 1856, the first professional was a Scot by the name of Willie Dunn.
Since the dawn of France golf, the country has gone on to produce quality golfers and outstanding championship courses across the country. Starting with the Open de France in 1906, the oldest National Open in Continental Europe. A fixture on the DP World Tour since its inception in 1972, culminating with the 2018 Ryder Cup Matches at Le Golf National outside Paris, France.

A perfect combination of the world’s most romantic and historic city with world-class golf. As Ernest Hemingway said of the city, “…wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” While the attractions of Paris need no introduction, your experiences on the surrounding courses – Chantilly, Fontainebleau, St Germain, Le Golf National, and a little farther afield Les Bordes, will also stay with you for the rest of your life.
This region may also be combined with a Paris itinerary. Americans feel a strong emotional connection with the beaches of Normandy made famous by WWII D-Day. To lighten the mood, explore the charming fishing villages and scenic coast of Bretagne, home to Mont Saint-Michel. Golf in the region includes Omaha Beach, Etretat, Granville, Dinard, and Deauville.
In a country known for its wines, the vines of Bordeaux are world-renowned for the exceptional quality of their varieties. Luckily there are many quality courses located near the famous vineyards to be able to combine both in a day. As the region borders San Sebastian on the Spanish coast, gastronomy is an important element in everyday life and food is meant to be savored and enjoyed. France golf courses in the area include – Grand Saint Emilionnais, Chantaco, Chiberta, Siegnosse, Medoc, Moliets, and Biarritz.
Providing inspiration for the Impressionists and artists throughout the ages, the beauty of the coast of southern France has also inspired golf course architects to design masterpiece layouts. Some of the best include Terre Blanche, Chateau Taulane, Royal Mougins, Monte Carlo, Cannes Mougins, and Fregate.
