This is a public course but it’s high quality – much much better than most municipal equivalents back in the UK.
Designed by Fred Hawtree in the early 1990s, the course runs through hills and woodland just north of the city. As it’s only a few minutes by car from the ferry port at Ouistreham, this would be an ideal starting point for a tour … or a final round before the voyage home.
With gently rolling rural fairways and often undulating greens, it’s not the most testing of courses, but it’s certainly an enjoyable round of golf with some challenging holes and more than a few water hazards lying in wait. There’s also a modern stylish clubhouse plus a 30 bay driving range.
Caen itself is a fascinating place, full of historical buildings and the resting place of William the Conqueror.
