With hundreds of miles of coastline steeped in the history of D-Day and William the Conqueror, the world famous Bayeux Tapestry and Monet Gardens in Giverny, Normandy has long been a favourite destination for British visitors. The golf breaks are rather special too…
Chic Deauville is a big draw for visitors, and there are courses a-plenty – the rolling fairways of Houlgate, the renowned Golf Barrière de Deauville, the multiple water hazards at Amirauté and the parkland setting at St.Gatien.
Further inland you’ll find St Julien and further still (but definitely worth the drive) are the magnificent fairways of Champ de Bataille. Equally magnificent, but very different, is Le Golf Parc Robert Hersant; don’t be put off by the name – this buggy-friendly course is really beautiful with many water hazards and island greens.
Golf d’Evreux offers a friendly welcome and there’s elegant parkland and a memorable clubhouse at Vaudreuil, whilst further north are several courses including the coastal gem at Etretat.
