With a combination of two very different 18 hole courses, there’s a rich variety of golf at Omaha Beach, as well as a wealth of history and culture.
Overlooking the D Day Beaches, it’s breath-taking to play here and look out over the shores where so many lives were lost, whilst only a few miles inland is the ancient town of Bayeux with its famous tapestry denoting another well known invasion that took place almost 1,000 years ago.
The La Mer course has holes named after World War 2 figures including Churchill, Eisenhower and De Gaulle. There are spectacular views of the sea and the village of Port-en-Bessin from several holes on the front 9, as well as a poignant memorial near the gun emplacements at the back of the 6th green.
The adjacent Manoir Course is more hilly and wooded – typical of the Normandy countryside with its hedgerows, apple trees and ponds.
With large and well-maintained greens and a warm welcome to visitors, Omaha Beach has proved very popular with British golfers.
