PLAYING GOLF ALONG THE FRENCH COAST
Playing golf in France
There are 3 excellent golf courses within a 35 kilometres (22 miles) radius of our holidays homes. With a further 7 courses within range of 60 kilometres (37 miles) there is something to suit everyone from the novice golfer, right up to professional level.
The golf course in St.-Jean-de-Monts
The golf course in St.-Jean-de-Monts (18 kilometres/11 miles) is situated near the sea, and due to the sandy well-drained ground, it can be used in all seasons. A number of the 18 holes lie in the pine forest, the fairways of these holes are quiet narrow. From the tee of 9th hole it is, with good weather, possible to see the island l’île de’Yeu. Along the coast the fairways and the greens have the same slopes as the dunes. Furthermore the wind has a firm influence on the game. The level of technical difficulty makes the course much sought after. This golf course is Hemko’s favourite.
The golf course of Pornic
In Pornic (30 kilometres/18 miles) the golf course lies in the middle of this harbour-village and has from time to time a considerable altitude difference. Holes 2 to 6 lie in the middle of a pine forest. There are a number of water boundaries. The water boundaries at hole 13 and 16 are especially tricky.
