“An extremely varied course with coastal and woodland challenges. I really like its diversity of play, because some holes are exposed to the wind, while others demand absolute precision because their approach is so well protected by trees”.
“Not only is the course magnificent, but the food here is excellent. The cep omelette is absolutely delicious”.
“This is the oldest course of the area. You can enjoy the pleasure of a quick 18 holes here, because the course itself is small. However be on your guard, an old course means the green it is as firm as it is fast."
"As a woman and a professional golfer, it is my duty to talk to you about this course (the home club of the Lacoste family). It has hosted the Lacoste French Ladies Open for the past six years! The architecture of its club house is a superb tribute to Basque Country tradition”.
"This is a very undulated course through oak woodland on clay soil. It's a very easy location to get to, set between the coast and the interior of the Basque Country. When you’re in this region, it’s a must-play”.
"This is the perfect course for nature lovers and a great place to experience the interior of the Basque Country. A pretty, undulating course with superb views of the mountains. The restaurant is also worth a visit”.
"Just 10 minutes from Saint-Jean-de-Luz, this small, deeply undulating course comes with an enormously welcoming club house atmosphere. The technical challenges of this course have earned it the honour of hosting a Ladies European Tour event, the Access Series and the European Ladies Second Division event!”
“A small 9-hole course greatly appreciated and respected by professionals and celebrities, with fabulous views of the Basque coastline. I absolutely recommend its restaurant and chipirons (small squid). Above all it’s primarily an international training centre and my office... I come here to work on my swing and refine my touch."
